Bronski Beat, "Truthdare Doubledare" / Review by: Retroraider
Favorite songs: Hit That Perfect Beat and C'mon C'mon (Remix)

The group had developed a huge following in the UK, but their danceable almost techno sound was a little ahead of it's time for US music buyers. Singer Jimmy Somerville did not have a top 40 US hit with Bronski Beat, but did barely crack the Billboard chart with his later group The Communards and their Thelma Houston remake "Don't Leave Me This Way". The remix of C'mon C'mon has a definite Caribbean party flair, and would be on my list of top 25 party songs of the entire decade.
