Being from NYC, I still cannot understand the difference.
It has to be something I am not seeing!!!

Where does 'Paul Young' get catigorized???
New Romantic or UK artist???

Also What about:
Frankie Goes To Hollywood,
Simple Minds,
Soft Cell,
Heaven 17,
Flock Of Seagulls?

I am confused about this!!!

Soul-Boy,

Was a while since I heard all of these tracks... Made be smile and be HAPPY in this HOUR.

Jay - as for the New Romantic stuff, I find it hard too, but just as Mikey says; Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Visage, Ultravox were all New Romantic along with acts like Adam & the Ants and Culture Club.
But sometimes the line between genres are very thin right ?! House vs Garage and so on...

Jay...
The New Romantic scene of the late 70's early 80's was more about the fashion the artists adopted than the music.The likes of Flock of Seagulls and Soft Cell fall into The New Romantic scene but I would say that the other bands that you have listed above did not adopt the fashion style so they were not classed as New Romantic, it's as simple as that! When it comes to Paul Young, I always classed him as pop/soul artist. Most of his success in the UK came with covers of soul greats like Marvin and so on and the dude always dressed slick in sharpe suits..


New Romanticism was a fashion movement that peaked in the United Kingdom during the early 1980s. Originally part of the New Wave music movement, it has seen several revivals since then, and continues to influence popular culture. Developing in London nightclubs such as Billy's and The Blitz, the movement was associated with bands such as Visage, Adam and the Ants, and Spandau Ballet. Brian Eno and Roxy Music were also influences. The movement's influence waned after Live Aid in 1985
New Romanticism's genesis took place largely through clubs such as Billy's in Dean Street, London, which ran David Bowie and Roxy Music nights in the aftermath of punk. This evolved into the Blitz Club in Great Queen Street, and later Hell, which were hosted by Steve Strange, who was also the doorman, and Rusty Egan who was the DJ. These two, together with Billy Currie and Midge Ure (both from Ultravox) formed the band Visage. Boy George was the cloakroom attendant until he got fired. Singer Marilyn also worked as a cloakroom attendant, doing impersonations of Marilyn Monroe. The club spawned several spin-offs, in London and in the surrounding area, including Croc's in Rayleigh, Essex, and The Regency in Chadwell Heath, where Depeche Mode and Culture Club had their debut gigs.

David Bowie has been cited as a major influence of the movement and his 1980 single "Ashes to Ashes" was influenced by, and was simultaneously considered to be an anthem for the New Romantics. However, as with many art school-based youth movements, by the time this anthem was pronounced, many commentators felt that the movement had been excessively commercialized and lost its original glamour.

Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Culture Club also became associated with the New Romantic period, with Duran Duran becoming house band of the Birmingham club Rum Runner. These later groups formed one of the offshoots of the scene, New Pop, and helped by the rise of the music video and MTV such bands managed to succesfully commercialise the New Romantic look as style became a marketable commodity. The peak of the movement was the Live Aid concert of July 1985, after which, according to Rimmer, "everyone seemed to take hubristic tumbles".

Other 1980s bands were later identified with the movement. Dave Rimmer, author of New Romantics: The Look, writes "In Sheffield, the alumni of glam went on to form bands such as The Human League, Heaven 17 and ABC, who were retrospectively lumped in with New Romantic, but at the time were no such thing."ABC singer Martin Fry has also dismissed the link to the New Romantic movement: "We were definitely a product of the times - and I guess our music had a romantic edge, but I wasn't up there in a Pierrot outfit." Fry recorded "The Look of Love: The Story of the New Romantics" for Radio 2 in 2001 which charted the history of the movement and its context within the social history of the 1980s. He saw punk as an inspiration for the movement only in the sense that you had "a generation that had seen the Sex Pistols and The Clash and wanted to create something very different for themselves."

New Romantic fashions were similar to that of glam rock during the early 1970s, in that male New Romantics often dressed in caricaturally counter-sexual or androgynous clothing, and wore cosmetics (such as eyeliner), frilly fop shirts in the style of the English Romantic period, or exaggerated versions of upscale fashion and grooming. The quiff was a common hairstyle.

In the mid-1990s, New Romanticism was an inspiration for the short lived musical movement Romo. The movement was based at a small number of club nights in London, including the Human League inspired "Don't You Want Me Baby" and Planet Earth, a Duran Duran themed night club whose promoter told The Sunday Times ""It's more of a celebration than a revival". The movement was championed by Melody Maker, whose free cover tape spotlighted the leading bands, Dex Dexter, Hollywood, Plastic Fantastic, Viva and Orlando. Melody Maker writers Simon Price and Taylor Parkes organised a tour which proved unsuccesful and saw the movement disband.

WOW, just had a FLASHBACK!!!

In 1981, I went to 'Better Days' to hear DJ Tee Scott and I never will forget that he took a just OK song to HEIGHTS I've never imagined.
I'm talking about Thelma's "IF YOU FEEL IT".
Tee kept repeating the break and her "C'mon Babe".
Did it for at least 15 minutes---the crowd screamed everytime he mixed it back.
I was in awe!!!!

So it was more a VISUAL and not a MUSICAL thing, right?????
Maybe that's why I didn't know---I just looked at the vinyl and played the music!!!
Thanks for the education---I love when you do that!!!!

Gonna try something completely different tonight for the HAPPY HOUR. THis may not be to everyones taste but I am gonna give it a blast anyway. What I am gonna bring to you tonight are some classic NOTHERN SOUL tracks that I have been playing for the past 25 years or so...Have a listen boys and girls, you just might be pleasantly suprised what you find here!....

THE EGLINS -"HEAVEN MUST HAVE SENT YOU" (1966/1971)
I gotta confess that I never really liked the BONNIE POINTER disco version, It just don't move me like THE ELGINS version..The track was released in 1966 and re-leased in 1971.As wll as the original version here, I have posted the acceppella of SANDRA EDWARDS that showcases how great her voice really is..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rwKCYat ... re=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rwKCYat ... re=related

DORIS TROY - "I'LL DO ANYTHING (HE WANTS ME TO DO)" (1965)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRY8_wsnsSU

WILLIE HUTCH - "LOVE RUNS OUT" (1973)
The following video is very poignant one as it was Willie's first vist to the UK in 2003 and it was his last. Sadly the great man died in 2005 at the young age of 60..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_yLcH1Xl4k
