That makes two of us my friend i like this track as well. from the techno/dance-pop phenomenon 2 Unlimited smile

I would imagine 'No Limits' was their biggest and most successful track across the continent, i remember the track hitting the UK by storm. And that outfit worn by the irresistible 'Anita Doth' sexy or what she certainly pulled my heart-strings wink

Yes indeed Admirator they had great energy and rhythm and the band became an instant success all across Europe and possibly throughout the world with their renown high energy techno tracks  smile

2 Unlimited

You are really good with these smile . I, by mistake, copy pasted from wikipedia for "2 Fabiola: instead of "2 unlimited", but you didn't fall for it! You ARE good wink !

Continuing with "2 Unlimited - Get Ready For This" 1991:

Wow! I thought this song was made from "Queen". And you know, that's a shame for me, because in 1987, Greece won the European championship of basketball and this song was played by the media back then, over and over, especially for celebrating this! Well, it was almost 30 years back, but still shame on me smile ! Love it smile !
And about "Queen": Queen are a British rock band that formed in London in 1970.
In 1977 they made "We will Rock You", but averybody knows that wink .
Here is an instumental only cover version i like a lot:

Ta! Admirator my friend, probably helps having brothers and a sister growing up in a household with lots of various music tracks blasting away through the decades as we gradually matured with age, and of course the glorious years of clubbing from disco's to nightclubs strutting your stuff on the dance floors!  wink oh yes, those were the days  smile

Great track 'Get Ready For This' my friend  smile

An inspirational movie, that with the help of Vangelis Papathanassiou's wonderfully stirring music, lifts the spirits to a new high  smile magical soundtrack  ;)

On a side note, a year later in 1982 he did one of the best soundtracks to one of the greatest science fiction films of all time "Blade Runner"
Based on Philip K Dick's dystopian novel of humanoid robots (replicants) and a Chandleresque hero (the 'blade runner'of the title) whose job was to hunt them down and eradicate them  smile

Great find my friend smile

U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976.

In an interview Summer said, she liked to exercise with music (if i remeber right) and as an example of music she said "I Will Survive"...
Gloria Gaynor (born September 7, 1949) is an American singer and in 1978 she made that song.

Chumbawamba were a British alternative music band that had, over a career spanning three decades, played anarcho-punk, pop-influenced music, world music, and folk music. In 1997 they made their most successful single, "Tubthumping" (i knew it as "i get knocked down"):

I'm going to start my 2nd (final) phase of vacation, this afternoon, within the best vacation destination nation biggrin . My posts messages will be rarer then.
The place i’ m having vacations, it is only 33,6km (21miles) away from Thermopylae (Hot gates), the place where King Leonidas and his 300 soldiers (and 700 Thespians) died fighting, defending freedom. I think Lena Headey would be interested to see the place smile .
Sabaton is a band from Falun, Sweden formed in 1999. I thought they were from Finland! So, it is Fermi's land again smile . They make Power metal and Heavy metal music, which is.. heavy for me, but in 2010 they made a nice song called "Coat of Arms", in a homonymous album. All songs have WW2 themes. "Coat of Arms" have both nice rhythm and theme and you will see why…



Nice! Thank you Sweden!
And an alternative video with lyrics here.

Hi, Admirator another great track my friend from one of the best bands the American underground produced in the fab "80s.  smile

Another band influenced by the energetic punk scene. R.E.M. began to develop their own energetic folk-rock style signature sound of music, with a mixed blend of chiming guitar and also the sound of cryptic vocals from their lead singer  smile

I enjoyed the hits from the early "90s "Losing My Religion" and "Shiny Happy People" was also a decent little number  smile

Great work Admirator  wink
