In 1988, NU107 introduced their second album "THE SEA OF LOVE" by playing "HEAVEN KNOWS WHICH WAY" which also bacame a hit on Manila New Wave Airwaves both on NU107 and DZBM POWER105 and was even included on the Philippine released compilation Vinyl "THE BEST OF NEW MUSIC 2". Then came "BROKEN LAND" which became an instant POWER105 classic because of the song's relation on CHEL D. "WHEN YOUR HEART WAS YOUNG" would be the last Manila Hit from this album and the band and Pinoy Wavers would definitely have also a copy it. HE HE HE!!
In 1989, THE ADVENTURES 3rd album "TRADING SECRETS WITH THE MOON" was introduced by DZBM POWER 105 by playing the song "YOUR GREATEST SHADE OF BLUE" but unlike the previous two albums, this album didn't really made a great impact here in Manila but still a relatively Pinoy Waver's collectors item.
THE ADVENTURES was the New Wave Band from Belfast who moved to London which was formed in 1984 headed by TERRY SHARPE on vocals who came from the late 70s group "THE STARJETS". The band released four albums and became famous here in Manila during the XB,BM, and NU days.

BROKEN LAND lyrics
- THE ADVENTURES
(from the album: THE SEA OF LOVE)
These rivers run too deep
With schemes of men for days that lay ahead
They sell their souls so cheap
They breed mistrust and fill my heart with dread
When did the boy become a man
And lose his life to learn
So much confusion to this plan
These times are not changing
Show me the love to keep us together
Open up your hearts don't turn me away
Comfort me through this stormy weather
From where I stand, I see a broken land
This boy had learned to fail
In times like these to cry seems so absurd
His own life's crisis pales
In the shadow of this truly dying world
These are the games we played at school
Our hands raised in despair
With no exception to the rule
These times are not changing
Very Famous New Wave Song among PINOY WAVERS!!
Ayos ba CHEL D.?

MY VERY OWN 'THE LOVER SPEAKS" COLLECTION
1) The Lover Speaks (Self Titled) Vinyl Record and CD
2) "No More I Love You's" EP Vinyl Record
Well, I just got a bonus when I was also able to purchase their Vinyl EP of "NO MORE I LOVE YOU'S which also became a hit on 89DMZ's WAVE180 back in 1995 since that was the year NU107 introduced the version of ANNIE LENNOX on Manila's airwaves.
ANNIE LENNOX version of "NO MORE I LOVE YOU'S"which was taken from her "MEDUSA" album made it big worldwide. Indeed it gave the song more exposure. "MEDUSA" also includes a remake of THE CLASH's "TRAIN IN VAIN" and BLUE NILE's "DOWNTOWN LIGHTS" which for me was also a very interesting album from Annie Lennox. It wouldn't be a surprise since THE LOVER SPEAKS has opened up before with THE EURYTHMICS on their 1986 "Revenge Tour" and DAVE STEWART himself was responsible for signing the band at A&M Records on their debut album back in 1985.
THE LOVER SPEAKS then recorded their second album in 1988 entitled "THE BIG LIE" which includes 9 new tracks but the band encountered problems releasing this material from A&M Records the same outfit that released their Self-titled debut album.

-DR. STIRRING RHOD
It was year 2004 when she was invited by 103.5 Klite DJ RON SOUTH to guest on his LITEWAVE "Your Ultimate New Wave Archive" show and she agreed to do so.
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend her LITEWAVE guesting but instead I listened over the Radio. It was indeed a great show wherein she was interviewed by DJ RON SOUTH about her Musical Interests and about NEW WAVE. She even mentioned having an I-Pod full of New Wave music. Huh? I-Pod was still expensive back then. Sosyal ang Lola ninyo!! He He He!
I guess the Highlight of the show was when she listed and mentioned her TOP 5 New Wave Songs of the era and DJ RON SOUTH played all 5 of them in ascending order from #5 to #1 Top Pick. I was able to jot it down. Well, here It is I'm going to post it on my Blog. That was her TOP 5 back then, and like most of us our personal favorites would change by time.
ROSANNA's TOP 5 New Wave Songs (LITEWAVE 2004 list)
1) The Pan Within- THE WATERBOYS
2) Total Recall- THE SOUND
3) My Boyfriend Is A Communist- MISS KIMBERLY
4) Tears- THE CHAMELEONS U.K.
5) Hongkong Garden- SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES
She even had a NEW WAVE BIRTHDAY GIG at KLUB102 back in MAY 24, 2004 sponsored by 103.5 Klite. KLUB102 was a Newwave Music Resto-bar which opened May 22, 2004 which was located along 106 KALAYAAN AVENUE, QUEZON CITY. Well, sadly it is non-existent anymore.
