80's Hits Stripped

Your Love (MP3)
The Outfield
(right click to download MP3)

80's Hits Stripped is an ALL ACOUSTIC compilation of 80’s hit songs performed by the original artisits.

The majority of these acoustic interpretations are a bit slower or quieter than before and "No One Is to Blame," "Rebel Yell," "These Dreams," and “Heat Of The Moment” were all recorded live. The versions that deviate most include Berlin's "Metro," which speeds things up and Tommy Tutone's "867-5309/Jenny," which sounds rougher and more rugged than the original single, and Billy Squier's "Stroke," which makes a surprisingly successful segue from pop-metal to Delta blues. Then there are the voices, most of which (Colin Hay and Tommy Heath aside) sound as youthful as ever. On "Missing You," for instance, John Waite channels his twentysomething self with ease, while on "Our Lips Are Sealed," the Go-Go's Jane Wiedlin sounds downright girlish. Bottom line: If you liked these songs in the first place, you'll like 'em in the second.
