Bronski Beat

A while back, my friend Jokerelli suggested I feature Bronski Beat.  Well, here I am chillin’ out on a Friday night listening to 80s Fridays on AltRok Radio and “Smalltown Boy” by Bronski Beat came on.  I so love this band.  The Jimmy Somerville-era ekes out the John Foster-era in my opinion.  While I adore songs such as “Hit That Perfect Beat” and “C’mon C’mon”, it doesn’t hold a candle to “Why?” and the remake of “I Feel Love”, a duet with Marc Almond of Soft Cell.
