My favourites: Kylie Minogue - I Should Be So Lucky (1987)

It's time for another one of my favourite tracks and this one just turned thirty years old: "I Should Be So Lucky" by Australian pop goddess Kylie Minogue. This and "The Loco-Motion" were the first of her songs I ever heard since they were played quite often on Swedish radio when I was a kid. However, I didn't really become a fan until the early two-thousands, after falling in love with eighties pop music.

Around the same time as I started listen to Kylie's eighties music, she made a huge comeback with the 2000 disco single "Spinning Around". I remember buying the CD maxi-single when I was in Dublin on holiday with my family. I fell in love with her newer material as well and since then, Kylie has been one of my all-time favourite artists.

But you know me, I'm a sucker for the eighties sound, especially by the brilliant production team Stock Aitken Waterman, so "I Should Be So Lucky" will always be my number one Kylie track. It always cheers me up when I'm feeling blue. The 12" remixes are amazing as well, especially "I Should Be So Lucky (The Bicentennial Remix)" where you really get to hear all the eighties sounds.

I also love the kitschy video with the retro special effects and the eighties hair and fashion. Check it out down below. "I Should Be So Lucky" was included on Kylie's 1988 debut album "Kylie", available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US. I also recommend the remastered and expanded deluxe reissue of the album.

Keep an eye on my blog label "favourites" to see, hear and read about more of my favourite tracks. You can also subscribe to my favourites playlist on YouTube.

Dua Lipa - New Rules (Initial Talk Remix)

British pop singer Dua Lipa released the single "New Rules" this summer. Now, she's released an amazing retro remix of the track by Initial Talk and it's better than the original version. The sound is so eighties it gives me goosebumps. I wish all her songs had a similar sound. You can never go wrong with retro music.

Nicollette Sheridan as Dynasty's Alexis

I'm really enjoying the reboot of eighties soap opera "Dynasty", but as a fan of the original, I've been looking forward to the arrival of my favourite character: Alexis. Now, the wait is finally over. The CW just announced that the new Alexis will be played by the one and only Nicollette Sheridan, known to soap fans as Edie in "Desperate Housewives", Paige in "Knots Landing" and Taryn in the short-lived "Paper Dolls".

Sure, no one will ever beat the fabulous Joan Collins, but I'm sure Nicollette will do a great job and I can't wait to see her. If you haven't seen the reboot already, the first seven episodes of "Dynasty" can be watched on Netflix and The CW's app.

L.A. Noire HD for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and more

There are some video games that are so good you'd buy them twice. One of my all-time favourite games is Rockstar Game's "L.A. Noire", originally released back in 2011 where you get to play as a detective in a film noir inspired mystery game set in Los Angeles, 1947. The city itself looks amazing and is almost the main character of the game. I love just driving around, exploring the gigantic open world.

The remastered HD version will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on November 14th, along with "L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files" for HTC Vive, which features seven select cases rebuilt for VR.

Whatever you do, don't miss out on this masterpiece of a game. It's truly a must for all fans of old Hollywood and film noir. It's like living in an old movie. Pre-order your copy now from Amazon.

In A Heartbeat - Gay themed animated short film

Everyone should check out the beautiful animated short film "In A Heartbeat" by Beth David and Esteban Bravo at Ringling College Of Art And Design. It follows a closeted schoolboy who risks being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams.

I wish there were more movies like this, especially targeted to children and teens. I'm sure that would help prevent bullying and homophobia.

Dynasty: My Al Corley CD collection

As you probably know, I'm a huge fan och eighties soap opera "Dynasty", where the cute Al Corley played gay character Stephen Carrington. But Al wasn't just an actor, he was also a singer. This is my CD collection of Al's music: "Square Rooms" (1984), "Riot Of Color" (1986), "The Big Picture" (1988) and the remix single "Land Of The Giants" (1988).

My favourite songs of his are the italo disco sounding "Square Rooms", "Give It Up" and "Cold Dresses".

My Gina G collection

I'm not just obsessed with eighties music, I also like nineties music, especially kitschy dance-pop and euro disco. The Australian-British singer Gina G is best known for her hit single "Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit" that represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 1996. But she has done so many other great pop songs over the years. Down below is a photo of my Gina G CD collection.

It includes the albums "Fresh!" and "Get Up & Dance", plus different editions of the singles "Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit", "I Belong To You", "Fresh!", "Ti Amo", "Gimme Some Love", "Every Time I Fall", "Love The Life 96" and "Tonight's The Night".

Steps - Story Of A Heart (Video + Remixes)

Today, Steps finally premiered the video for their new single "Story Of A Heart" and you can check it out down below. The video is such a nostalgic trip for those of us who have followed the group since their debut in the nineties.

As you probably know by now, the song is written by ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, and is the second single from Steps' wonderful comeback album "Tears On The Dance Floor".

The digital single includes brand new remixes by Cutmore and 7th Heaven, which is always a big plus. I even think that the song is even better as an uptempo track. You can get the remixes now from iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US.

"Story Of A Heart (Remixes)" tracklist:

1. Story Of A Heart (Cutmore Radio Mix)
2. Story Of A Heart (7th Heaven Club Mix)

Baccara, Katz, Tracy Spencer, Stacey Q, PWL galore

New additions to my record collection: "I Belong To Your Heart" by Baccara, "Tracy" by Tracy Spencer, "Sunni" by freestyle singer Sunni, "Baby It's You" by Hawn & Wonder, the compilation "Super Disco Hit Collection '89" which includes many rare PWL related tracks, "Don't Make A Fool Of Yourself" and "Going Goth" by Stacey Q.

Grace And Frankie - A truly amazing show

The comedy-drama series "Grace And Frankie" follows two very different women who become friends after their husbands announce that they are in love with each other. I'm a fan of Jane Fonda so she was the main reason I decided to watch the show. But I got hooked right from the start and the show also made me a fan of Lily Tomlin, whose character is such a joy. I kind of wish I was her friend.

Watching the unlikely friendship evolve is what makes this show so great. It's also refreshing to finally see a good TV series about people over forty. It didn't take me long to watch all three seasons on Netflix. But now what? The fourth season is set to premiere in 2018. I can't wait that long to share the lives of these amazing characters. Maybe I'll just re-watch the show in the meantime.

I really recommend this series to anyone who needs some cheering up. It's truly amazing.

Zoë - Dangerous Affair

Do you remember the Austrian singer Zoë? She competed with the magical song "Loin D'ici" in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 and quickly became one of my favourites that year. Now, she's back with the new single "Dangerous Affair". It has English lyrics and a more electronic sound than her previous work, which is always a big plus for me.

Check out the video down below. The song is out now on iTunes and Spotify. I also recommend her lovely album "Debut".

Susie Päivärinta - In Dreams

I would like to share the video to the lastest single by my friend Susie Päivärinta – member of eighties euro disco duo Lili & Susie – called "In Dreams". The beautiful track and video is a farwell to Susie's long-time songwriting partner Nestor Geli, who sadly passed away on December 15, 2016. He had co-written Lili & Susie singles such as "Nothing Could Be Better", "Where Eagles Fly", "Ride On My Love" and "Show Me Heaven".

"In Dreams" is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US. Don't forget to like Susie on Facebook for more on her upcoming solo album.
