Billy Ocean, is the biggest black recording star Britain has ever produced, one who has sold over 30 million records in his lifetime. He has collected a pile of Gold and Platinum records across the world and hit the number one spot worldwide on pop charts including the U.S.A., Australia, Germany, Holland, and the U.K. Billy has achieved extraordinary success as both an artist and a songwriter. Top hits include, “Love Really Hurts Without You,” “Love On Delivery,” “Stop Me,” “Red Light Spells Danger,” “Caribbean Queen,” “Loverboy,” “Suddenly” and “The Going Gets Tough.”
Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, Mickey Thomas joined Jefferson Starship in 1979. Mickey’s voice had become legendary after recording “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” with the Elvin Bishop Band and he was planning to pursue a solo career. Jefferson Starship quickly proved to be the right decision as they recorded their first hit, “Jane” almost immediately after getting together. In 1985, Starship released the album that would come to define the eighties, Knee Deep in the Hoopla. Featuring two #1 hits – “We Built This City” and “Sara” – the album reached #7 on Billboard and went platinum. The hit “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” is featured on the soundtrack for Mannequin.
The Motels featuring Martha Davis, The Motels recorded six records for Capitol. Their self-titled debut was greeted with positive critical reviews in 1979 and exploded in Australia on strength of the #2 Pop single, “Total Control” (which was later covered by Tina Turner for the We Are the World album). In 1981 their sophomore effort, “Careful,” went Top 50. Then, in 1982, the Motels released All Four One; the smash single “Only the Lonely” rocketed into the Top 10, immediately propelled the album to gold status and truly broke The Motels in the United States. The group dominated the music seen and was voted Best Performance for “Only the Lonely” at the 1982 American Music Awards. 1983’s Little Robbers album went gold on the Top 10 single “Suddenly Last Summer” and the second Top 40 hit “Remember the Nights.”
Taylor Dayne, With the release of her first two albums, 1988’s Tell It to My Heart and 1989’s Can’t Fight Fate, Dayne racked up three number one singles: “Tell It To My Heart,” “Love Will Lead You Back” and “Prove Your Love To Me.” Her Grammy-nominated songs could be heard across the radio dial, from top 40 pop stations to adult contemporary channels. Meanwhile, Dayne sang in front of audiences across the world, even joining Michael Jackson for the European leg of his sold-out “Bad” tour.
Naked Eyes, “It was around 1980 that Rob and I formed a band called Neon, that would later include Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal,” says Byrne. “We recorded a few songs, but the band fizzled, and Roland and Curt went on to form Tears For Fears, while Rob and I created Naked Eyes.” Almost immediately, the band signed with EMI and began recording at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. “ …I’ve always loved the songs from the great girl singers of the sixties, and one day in the studio we decided to do a cover of one of them; it could easily have been a Dusty Springfield song or a Cilla Black tune, but as fate would have it, we settled on a Sandie Shaw song.” That song, was the Burt Bacharach/Hal David tune “Always Something There To Remind Me,” which immediately exploded into the Top 10… followed by the self-penned “Promises, Promises” and “When the Lights Go Out.” The back to back to back hits resulted in massive U.S. radio airplay and an almost constant presence on MTV.
Formed in 1979 in Bath, U.K. as Neon (19) and then renamed their act to release two albums in 1983 - 1984 produced by Tony Mansfield (with whom Rob Fisher had recorded a single in 1982 as Planet Ha Ha). They were one of the first groups of the second british invasion in the U.S. charts, with their rendition of Bacharach And David classic "Always Something There To Remind Me" (No.8 in U.S. pop chart in 1983 and No.59 in The U.K. pop chart) and then with "Promises Promises" (No.11 in 1983) the 12'' extended John "Jellybean" Benitez mix of which features Madonna's vocals. Following their success in the U.S. Arthur Baker produced the first single of their second album "(What) In The Name Of Love" (No. 39 in the U.S. pop chart in 1984). After Rob Fisher's death on 25 August 1999, Peter Byrne released a solo alum in 2001 and he reactivated by himself the name Naked Eyes for a further 2007 cover album.
