So What - Swedish synthpop duo fansite

I just finished the new fansite about Swedish pop duo So What. Please check it out! They are best known for their 80's singles "I Was Lucky", "Why Should I Trust You" and "You And I (Nathalie)". Gotta love their Stock Aitken Waterman inspired sound! Here are two of their videos:

"There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby"

I was very saddened to hear about the terrorist attack in my neighbour country Norway. I would like to honour the victims with a song, Judy Garland's classic "Over The Rainbow", here performed live by Kylie Minogue:

Rest in peace.

Steps are back!

It's finally official, the plastic pop group Steps is coming back! I'm so excited! I really love their music and have been a huge fan since I was a kid. According to Generation Steps, the group is reuniting to do a TV documentary.

They will also release a greatest hits album. I just hope they will record some brand new songs as well. My favourite Steps member is Claire Richards, she has the best voice. Although I'm a big fan of all the girls.

Follow me on Facebook and Twitter for more news on Steps comeback! Here are some of Steps' biggest hits:

Lili & Susie - Swedish disco duo fansite

I just finished the Lili & Susie fansite on Plastic Retro. Please check it out! It's nice to introduce these Swedish disco sisters to people who don't speak Swedish. If you haven't heard their music yet, you're in for a treat.

More discographies by Swedish artists are coming soon!

I love latin freestyle!

Not many people here in Sweden know about the music genre freestyle. The genre was huge in the US during the eighties and early nineties. Freestyle is a mix between dance, house, synthpop and latin pop. I'm not a big fan of traditional latin music, but I love freestyle!

Through the years, I've collected lots of freestyle albums on CD, mainly by female artists and girl groups. The upbeat melodies and the electronic dance sound always cheers me up. It's amazing!

Some freestyle artists I like: Sweet Sensation, The Cover Girls, Exposé, Shana, Brenda K. Starr, Nancy Martinez, Seduction, Stacey Q, Pajama Party, Shannon, Alisha, Cynthia. Here are some of their videos:

Video from the new Dallas spinoff

I know I'm not the only one who's excited about the brand new "Dallas" spinoff coming next summer. The news about the show is spreading fast, all over the world. Check out the video preview down below. Sue Ellen looks amazing! Can't wait to see this.

If the video doesn't work, try the show's official website.

New website updates coming soon!

I know I've been a naughty boy. I haven't updated the Plastic Retro website for ages. Shame on me. But I'm finally updating the site with many exciting 80's artists so keep your eyes on the website.

I love you all for having such great taste in trashy music!
