The Fashion Office Recommends…Power Ballads

Seems each Friday, I take subconcious pleasure in making this as difficult as possible for myself – this week, The Fashion Office Recommends…Power Ballads.  Sorry people, things are about to get very slushy…

Sostylistic opts for:  Aerosmith – Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.

Ellie: Bon Jovi – Always.

New Favourite Thing chose: White Snake – Here I Go Again.

Sartoriology: Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Power Of Love.

A Work In Progress: Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston – When You Believe.

Stevie: Roxette – It Must Have Been Love.

Another new recruit, Frankie recommends: Bonnie Tyler – Total Eclipse Of The Heart.

Soldiersailor: Madonna cover’s disco diva Rose Royce’s, Love Don’t Live Here Anymore.

I really didn’t like this track back in the 80s.  As a child, I found it miserable compared to the more frenetic tracks, Over and Over and Angel on Madonna’s debut album Like A Virgin.  Several decades on, with age (and less sugar in my diet), I’ve grown to love it by understanding the pain the lyrics convey, and as an adult, think this is a peaceful, really quite beautiful track.

Check out what revamped and remixed tracks made the list last week in The Fashion Office Recommends – Sampled Tracks.
