Debated where to place this... but since this is a revamping of older 60 songs (lot of Beetles songs) I guess I will leave it here...

At one time they did a lot of hooky covers of songs often with a disco beat added... but it sold well...


Here is some of these songs.... often just a half minute or shorter covers and mixed together smoothly.

YouTube short version given for idea of what you get with the long versions I am gonna post...

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1




Medley II has some more recent music (70s mixed in)...

Squeeze Play Time.... Ok bad attempt at a pun... But some may remember this band "Squeeze"... Sorta a Beetles sound to my untrained ears... includes songs from the late 70s to 80s.... and maybe beyond... Pretty popular group especially in the UK, but a few hits in the US.

Now into the slightly weird 80s alternative with a female vocalist that most will agree sounds quite childish in tone... So this post is not for everyone... alternative sometimes goth sometimes Cocteau Twinish, often 4AD label odd and unusual with ethereal vocals that seem eerie.

Double "Best of The Cranes" here... two albums worth of music...

Another alternative 80s group called "He Said" which featured one of the members of "Wire"... He (Graham Lewis) put out two albums under this group name, but I only liked the second one (one featured below)... It was strange and well-put-together and I enjoyed the whole album. But again, it is not for everyone... dark and still beautiful... not a bad song on the whole album.

I had always seen the name of the group but never gave them a try... I figured they were a 90s group (and they for most part were)... but this song (which I liked) was released in late 80s. Thanks for sharing @corbe ... by the time the sax kicked in ... I was hooked.
