Eddy Huntington - May Day (Entre Amigos '88)

Do you remember Eddy Huntington? It was released in 1988 and was produced by Miki Chieregato & Roberto Turatti. Written by Gino Zandonà, Miki Chieregato, Roberto Turatti, Silvio Melloni & Tom Hooker.

Enjoy this really cool performance he made on the spanish show Entre Amigos 1988!

U.S.S.R. was his most famous song and I remember, I was a teenager and the radio played it a lot in Italy: it was the golden era of dance music and of course the Stock Aitken Waterman era, but Eddy Huntington had only been produced by italian producers.

Kylie Minogue - Wouldn't Change A Thing [Let's Get To It Tour]

I love so much Kylie in this "Let's Get To It Tour". I bought the VHS when I was teenager, it was the first time I saw Kylie live, because she wasn't famous here in Italy for live performances. Some of her records as "I Should Be So Lucky" became famous in Dj Television, but she wasn't very famous here, so in a record shop in Vercelli (north of Italy) every week I go asking for the "Enjoy Yourself" album and "Ten Good Reasons" album* and at the end they found a copy for me.

* It's a Jason Donovan Lp/Cd, also produced by Stock, Aitken & Waterman.
