Two albums also entered the top 50 in 1983. Modern Romance made a total of 13 appearances on Top Of The Pops.

They band were huge in Europe and Japan, also achieving a No. 1 hit in the Far East with their single 'Walking in the Rain'. The album 'Adventures in Clubland' (1981) hit No. 1 in Venezuela, earning them a Gold Disc.

Andy Kyriacou took over lead vocals in 1999 and has been at the helm ever since.  The band’s resurgence was buoyed by the ‘Best Years of Our Lives’ track being featured in the very first Shrek movie. The band continue to perform at festivals and Retro events all over Europe.

This album features many of their hits including ‘Best Years of Our Lives’, ‘Ay Ay Ay Ay Moosey’, ‘Everybody Salsa’ & ‘Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White’, as well as new songs, ‘Rhythm Is My Lover’, ‘Come To Me’ & ‘Mi Chica Latina.’

Andy is currently working on a book, transcribing the diaries he kept in the 80’s which will be published through Agent Fox Media in 2021, (approximately August/September), to coincide with the 40-year anniversary of the first Modern Romance single, ‘Everybody Salsa’. The book will feature some great references to other 80’s acts, funny little stories will be retold, and there will also be the obligatory “interesting reading” one should expect from a book written by a member of a high profile 80’s pop band, drawing from a very honest diary. Say no more!!

Before that, an album “Their Greatest Tracks” will be released on November 19th once more through Nub Music which will also feature 6 new songs.

Alt. Pop Singer-Songwriter Jacqueline Loor Shares "Just Let Me Breathe"

No comments

 

Rising alternative pop singer-songwriter Jacqueline Loor has released her latest single “Just Let Me Breathe” featuring vocals from Austin based artist and producer Will Evans. The track once again highlights Loor’s incredible ability to demonstrate her breathtaking emotional vocal range.

Written by Jacqueline Loor & Will Evans, produced and mixed by Will Evans, and mastered by Nicholas Roberto Di Lorenzo, “Just Let Me Breathe” pairs the voices of Loor and Evans powerfully together, creating a haunting track that explores the desire to forge one’s own path and push through society’s daily demands.

“People feel so much pressure on a daily basis from society, family, and friends to be someone they want them to be, and it is suffocating,” says Loor. “The older I get the more free I have become of all of that, but it's not easy to be true to who I am when it's hard to just breathe. I hope this song empowers people to be who they really are and not fall into the pressures from everyone around them.”

Jacqueline Loor has played in many of Miami’s hottest spots, including Bar Nancy, Las Rosas, and Churchills, and was featured on Telemundo for her music video “Don’t You Pretend,” which was recently also confirmed for television series placement, to be announced at a later date. She continues to release music, building her genuine fan base and establishing a bright future ahead.

ABOUT JACQUELINE LOOR

Jacqueline Loor is an indie artist originally from Miami, Fl but currently living in Tenerife, Spain. This island is where she realized her true calling was to create music that could resonate with others. Loor’s unique haunting voice and far reaching range paired with her catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics can grab anyone’s attention. Loor is all about empowering people, even if it means having to dig deep into emotions that people may have buried for a long time. Her music is all about the feels, building tension, and getting to that moment where you have chills all up and down your spine.

A music blogger, KMS Reviews, wrote, “Once again Jacqueline Loor knows how to put the spell on you with her voice. ... the vocals feel like they are able to slow down time. And this, guys, is my favorite part of the releases of the American multi-talent, I like to call it the ‘Loor effect’.”

MyCajita Brings Day of the Dead Altar Experience Into Your Home

No comments

 


 MyCajita, the first subscription box and online marketplace of Mexico, announces its third edition of its Day of Dead themed box just in time for the commemoration. Mexico’s “Día de los Muertos,” is an ancient Mesoamerican tradition now embraced outside of Mexico that continues to gain acceptance for its uplifting message of celebrating the lives of loved ones who have passed on. Popularized by the Disney movie, Coco, the Day of the Dead holiday has become intertwined with Catholic traditions and shortened from a month-long event to celebrations that are held on November 2. The first two editions of this box sold out attesting to the growing practice of building an altar at home to welcome and honor the spirits of deceased loved ones back for one night.

“We are excited about the authentic elements we have curated to make it easy for those interested in building their own altar at home,” says Danny Vivian, My Cajita Chief Operations Officer. “We have curated an authentic experience so you may build your altar at home celebrating this honored tradition. From hand-carved pottery from Oaxaca, to the hand-stamped Papel Picado from Puebla, and even the charcoal and copal (incense) to burn is included.”

“This year more than ever we believe this themed box will resonate because it offers a comforting way to remember loved ones that is joyful, not sad,” says Rachel Matos, MyCajita Chief Marketing Officer. This cultural tradition is a thoughtful experience to remember and celebrate the lives of our loved ones who have passed on.”

The MyCajita box comes with eight important pieces to build an altar including the featured black barro calavera (black pottery skull). The custom-designed altar set comes with 3 hand-made barro negro pieces that include a copalero with charcoal and virgin copal, to clean the air. A candelero and cempasúchil (marigold) scented candles, to light the way for the visiting departed and for the fragrance to help them find their way. And a salero and rock salt, to keep the soul pure while it is in this world visiting. There is also papel picado, and a Barro Negro Muertos Skull, a beautiful showpiece and perfect addition to the ofrenda. Add to this a glass of water to quench their thirst, their favorite food and drink, and you have an authentic altar to celebrate this tradition with honor and respect.

According to McKinsey & Company, a renowned research firm, subscription boxes like MyCajita, have experienced 100% growth between 2011 to 2016 and continue to have double-digit growth.
