This was never intended to be released as a single – it was released initially on 1976’s Silk Degrees, but proved so popular that the label decided to release a single as well.
Very commercial, very catchy, very fun. This one came out in 2007 and was top of the UK singles chart for a few weeks.
A real slow jam, in classic Stevie Wonder style.
This one came out in 1976 on the exquisite Songs In The Key Of Life.
Giorgio Moroder, Tom Cruise, fighter jets, sunsets – and a price comparison website advert. You can’t win ’em all…
Still, this is undoubtedly one of the coolest songs ever made. A magnificent slice of synth-pop released in 1986, the second single from the Top Gun soundtrack.
This one was originally recorded by The Pretenders in 1980; Grace Jones covered it in the same year.
Its essentially a reggae track, but the vocals and synths make it something else – it almost transcends genre.
Grace Jone’s version was released on Warm Leatherette.
Hardly a hidden gem, this Platinum certified banger was a top ten hit in many countries around the world.
The energy on this one is ferocious – tribal drums and a hard bassline give extra power to Nelly Furtado’s already strong vocal performance.
The song was released in 2006, a single from the album Loose, and is produced by Timbaland.
