RUMOURS (Dance Hits Of The 80s)

In 2004, an 80s/ITALO Philippine Compilation CD was released by EMI Philippines Inc. which contains 15 great tracks for time travelling and dancing. YUP!! Let's blast off to the past again as I feature this CD entitled "RUMOURS: Dance Hits Of The 80s" which I find very cool for sound tripping and if you really like ITALO and 80s Music then this would be very good on your collection. Definitely, I love the simple CD Cover which features the MIRROR BALL which is very ICONIC if you talk about remembering those PARTY DAYS back then. Wheeew!! I still remember attending a soiree party wherein the motor of the Mirror Ball just stopped working so what the guys did was to spin it manually. Ha Ha Ha!! Good thing It started spinning again. He He He!! So what kind of rumours do you hear? Would it be the famous PINOY TERM "Tsismis" (Gossip in English)? Nope!! It's just plain rumours in the form of music just for listening pleasure.


Well, It's locally pressed but that's not important to me when I saw this CD because I considered the CD content since I still don't have a good quality copy of these songs back in 2004 which was the year this was released so I considered it as a good buy. Definitely, good vibes music that would activate your memory banks again and recall the good old days. There was also the famous and Legendary "RUMORS DISCO" Club in MAKATI which was also the place for party animals. He He He!! I just visited the place only once and I really enjoyed dancing the night away with my friends. Hmmmp!! MEMORIES INDEED!! I love the choices of the songs included here which includes "LIFEDANCE", "SAHARA NIGHTS", and "LANCA PERFUME" just to name a few.

The title of the CD also reminded me of this 80s PINOY SHOWBIZ TALK SHOW entitled "RUMORS, FACTS, AND HUMOR" hosted by ALFIE LORENZO which became controversial when Actress Miss Divina Valencia hit the microphone on the head of Reporter Rey Dela Cruz. YUP!! I was able to watch that back then and I was really laughing and shocked because It was LIVE on Television.Wheeew!! Talking about heated argument. He He He!!

Here's a Video Clip of that 80s SHOWBIZ Talk Show "RUMORS, FACTS, AND HUMOR" courtesy of VSPRODUCTION but It's not the controversial Valencia-Dela Cruz scene.This Video Clip featured VILMA SANTOS promoting her 1988 movie "Ibulong Mo Sa Diyos" in English "Whisper It To GOD". Tama ba KABAYANS? Ha Ha Ha!! Baduy ba? Well, It's SMORGASBOARD time here on "The Doctor Is In". He He He!!

Well, last but not the least!! The MUSIC VIDEO of TIMEX SOCIAL CLUB where the name of the CD compilation was actually taken but with a different spelling.

I first heard the song "RUMORS" by TIMEX SOCIAL CLUB on 99.5RT back in 1986 and the song was really a big hit here in MANILA back then. MASSIVE HIT!! You can hear the song in a lot of Radio Stations and even TV shows during those times. The MTV of the song was also all over the MUSIC VIDEO Shows on Philippine Television too."Rumors" was from Timex Social Club's debut album Vicious Rumors which was released back in 1986 and it was big on both the U.S and U.K. CHARTS. I hope you liked and enjoyed my RUMOURS blogpost. THANKS for dropping by again!!
