Suhb-Let Creative: A Creative Mis-Interpretation of “Smalltown Boy”

July 28, 2014

When I started this blog 4 1/2 years ago, I just wanted to get into writing again, and share my love of the ’80s.
Then I had the pleasant surprise of becoming “online” friends with some readers, and Facebook and Twitter followers from all over the world. What an incredible experience!
Recently, I have been getting to know more and more creative people. Let me introduce you to a couple of these people.

Stephania Dulowski is a Chicago based filmmaker. She and her friend Timmy Parker, a Chicago based art director, have recently started a design and film based collective titled Suhb-Let Creative.

Their first item of business? They created a fun music video to one of their favorite ’80s tunes: “Smalltown Boy” by the British synth-pop group Bronski Beat.

And here is the original video by Bronski Beat

So, if you are on Facebook, you can follow Suhb-let Creative’s Facebook page to enjoy more of their videos.

Hi Everybody! I’m back after an awesome vacation. Now, lets get back in the swing of things.

Can you name the artist and song:

Just can’t stand up for fallin’ apart
Can’t see through this veil across my heart, over you
You’ll always be the one


Last Song: “Freewheel Burning” by Judas Priest from Defenders of the Faith (1984)

Fast and furious we ride the universe
To carve a road for us that slices every curve in sight

Last Song: “Listen to Your Heart” by Roxette from Look Sharp! (1988)

Great job Andrew, Frida (@carrjam94) and Wilhelmina (@WillieSun)!!!

I know there’s something in the wake of your smile.
I get a notion from the look in your eyes

You make everything so clear

What’s On My iPod?

July 16, 2014

Hi Everybody. I’ve been so tired lately, that I can’t concentrate enough to right a decent article. But, I still want to share with you. While sitting at my desk at work all day, I usually either listen to podcasts or music. Today I decided to play some songs on my iPod. As of this second, there are 12,782 songs on my iPod.
So, let’s have some fun. I will hit the ‘Shuffle’ button, and share the first ten songs that get played. I will not skip any, so it is possible that there will be some non-80s songs. The odds are even greater that there will be at least a few ’80s songs on here. Let’s get started. Hopefully, this will not be too embarrassing. Feel free to make fun of me if you want. I stand behind my music! Wait..let me make sure there is no Justin Bieber. Just kidding, I really didn’t need to check. There is a 100% chance that you will NOT hear any Justin Bieber here. I really hope there are songs on here that you will enjoy. And you may even discover new music. Here..We..Go!!

“Heart and Soul (Live)” – Huey Lewis & The News

This was on a Sports special edition that I downloaded from iTunes

“Crazy Train (Live)” by Ozzy Osbourne

From Ozzy’s Live at Budokan album

“Uncle Tom’s Cabin” by Warrant

In my opinion, Warrant is one of the most underrated bands of all time. This is a really good song off of the Cherry Pie album.

“Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” by Patty Smyth and Don Henley

I still love this song. Can’t get enough of Patty Smyth.

“Mary, Mary” by Run DMC

That’s right, I love Run DMC! Why you buggin’?

“867-5309/Jenny” by Tommy Tutone

The odds are pretty good that there would be at least one ’80s essential on this list.

“Trial By Fire” by Kiss

One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite Kiss albums – Asylum

“Black Water” by The Doobie Brothers

What a great song to relax to!

“Love Chaser” by Europe

Here is another underrated hair band. This is a really good song you may not have heard of unless you have The Final Countdown album.

“I Will Not Go Quietly” by Don Henley

Awesome rocker by Henley, with Axl Rose on the backing vocals.

Well that was something completely different. I hope you enjoyed. And phew, nothing embarrassing! I may have to do this again sometime. Let me know what you thought of this article.
And it would be great if you guys listed out some songs that are on your iPod too.

You give my life direction,
You make __________ __ _____


Last Song: “Don’t Know Much” by Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville from Ronstadt’s album Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind (1989)

Great job Andrew!!

Look at this face
I know the years are showing
Look at this life
I still don’t know where it’s going

Can you name the artist and song:

Look at this face
I know the years are showing
Look at this life
I still don’t know where it’s going


Last Song: “Who Can It Be Now?” by Men At Work from Business as Usual (1981)

Great job Jim and Robert (@mishouenglish)!!

All I wish is to be alone
Stay away, don’t you invade my home
Best off if you hang outside
Don’t come in – I’ll only run and hide
