I Was Just In The Middle Of A Dream


Sometimes the songs that seem to be the obvious songs to post are indeed the ones that are obvious songs to post. It is Monday. Prince wrote Manic Monday for Apollonia 6 but pulled it and offered it to The Bangles.They then Banglified it, turning it into a number two hit in both the UK and the US in 1986.

Manic Monday

This Top Of The Pops performance has Susanna Hoffs achieving peak Hoffsness.

Prince and Susanna. That was the mid 80s summed up. Only needed a BAD remix and a couple of Mods riding on scooters to sum up 1985/86 for me. Oh and a few old Punk albums.

The hairdos alone give the decade away. Always been a cracking tune, but when Susie's eyes flirt with you in the way that they do, it makes you so grateful for television...

Mondays aren't so bad after all. Thanks for digging up that TOTP video. You can almost hear all of us sigh when you click play.
