EQ Nu-Retro Rewind: The Final by Wham! Re-Release OUT Now! Re-Live Their Greatest Hits!

Wham Press Shot 2

by Raj Rudolph

For the past few weeks, I've been immensely enjoying re-living my 80s wonder years via the incredible  greatest hits collection of "Wham: The Final" which will be re-released on CD and DVD by Sony Music very soon. 

"Wham: The Final" is the duo's most definitive collection of hits and highlights the days when pop music was fun, light-hearted, cool and sexy through pop rompers like "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go", "Freedom", "Club Tropicana" and "I'm Your Man".  These were songs that defined my youth and are the sole reason I wear a CHOOSE LIFE t-shirt all the time.  I recently wore my infamous CHOOSE LIFE t-shirt to a music interview and one of the publicists FREAKED OUT when he saw me wearing it...turns out, he was one of Wham's managers back in the day and couldn't believe that the t-shirts were making a comeback in fashion!

Anywho - if you are one of our younger readers and need to get a gift for mom or dad, rest assured a physical CD or DVD of "Wham: The Final" will make a most excellent stocking stuffer complete with iconic holiday song "Last Christmas".  Or, if you're one of grown-up readers, well I highly suggest you add this album download to your music collection.  If there ever was one greatest hits album that I would own, it would for damn sure be "Wham: The Final". 

The Final - Wham!

This Is Nu-Retro - Watch "Pump Up The Jam" by Black Cherry - FREE DOWNLOAD


Emerging London band Black Cherry have put out an amazing cover version of 90's smash hit "Pump Up The Jam" by Technotronic that is refreshing and hands down - an all out JAM!  My mate Terry Vietheer turned me onto this cover version which is available now for FREE DOWNLOAD on Black Cherry's Soundcloud page.

Like Black Cheery's version of "Pump Up The Jam"?  Well check out their original tracks "One Another" and "Lost In The System" too.  A buzz is most certainly beginning to build for this Hackney duo.

EQ Nu-Retro Rewind - Club Nouveau


One of the fun things about being a music blogger and new DJ is that I get to revisit a lot of tracks that used to ignite a fire in me when I was younger.  One of those said tracks was by a band called Club Nouveau

Most people know Club Nouveau for being one hit wonders for their massive hit "Lean On Me" (watch it on YouTube here), but one of their lesser known tracks that never got that much attention was called "Why You Treat Me So Bad" and I've found a stream of it on YouTube and just had to share it with you.

Enjoy this little nu-retro rewind today - personally, I'm loving re-discovering Club Nouveau all over again!  Still sound uber fresh!
