the fun of the 80s
Directed by Gracie Otto and very well put together rather well done of the old footage of her father’s, apparently found in his attic, and then added of the others who agreed for interviews. George Martin, originally worked with The Beatles and then later built his new studio on the island of Montserrat and more or less in the 80s were some of the greatest hits. This included, The Police, Dire Straits, Duran Duran also The Rolling Stones for their reunion, Paul McCartney just after Lennon’s death and rather good ones of Elton John. It was noted that MTV was born at that time and video became almost just as important as the music it self. Then the CD came along just as the music companies could re-record old songs and albums and didn’t need so much of the new music at all, it seems. A splendid documentary which is good to see the fun of the 80s.
A unique moment in time and place that even someone not in the industry can appreciate.
Great storytelling by not just the music greats who recorded there, but also by the islanders who fed and housed them, or taught Sting how to sailboard, or told another rocker that his song was going to be a huge success because it was so fun to dance to, and then the song actually became a huge success!
The music made on this small island was blasted out of my Walkman in high school, and I’ve had to repurchase every format of every release since then from cassettes to digital, so you know it made great memories for me.
I’m grateful for the look back, but terribly saddened by the double whammy of natural destruction that lay waste to the island and the beautiful people of Montserrat. Noting those tragedies, it’s was truly a moment in time that a pre-this, and a post-that could ever have happened, and it happened here. Then.
Don’t miss out now.
