A CLIFF RICHARD triple threat. 1980, 1981, 1982. All rethrift. Though his eyes are dreamy and he’s working some biceps on his album covers.. this is soft pop / rock of the very early 80s.
oh wow ~ this is a gem ~ Cliff and Olivia! 1980 on the Midnight Special. Suddenly the wheels are in motion and i’m ready to sail on the ocean. epic.. it seems like it hurts for both of them to sing.. mostly him through his bowl cut. Hard to believe there’s only 259 views on youtube. lol.
Sir Cliff Richard, OBE (born Harry Rodger Webb; 14 October 1940) is a British pop singer, musician, performer, actor, and philanthropist. With hisbacking group The Shadows, Richard, originally positioned as a rebellious rock and roll singer in the style of Little Richard and Elvis Presley, dominated the British popular music scene in the pre-Beatles period of the late 1950s and early 1960s. His 1958 hit single “Move It” is often described as Britain’s first authentic rock and roll song, and John Lennon once claimed that “before Cliff and the Shadows, there had been nothing worth listening to in British music.” A conversion to Christianity and subsequent softening of his music later led to a more middle of the road pop image, sometimes venturing into gospel music. Over a 53-year career, Richard has become a fixture of the British entertainment world, amassing many gold and platinum discs and awards, including three Brit awards and two Ivor Novello awards. He has had more than 130 singles.
I’ve gotta say, I am feeling the eighties here. It’s hard to deny.
Are you feeling the 80s?
