One night with Joe...




Murray Head is an English singer and actor whose singularity is to write songs from an early age.


He really started his musical career in 1971 by playing the role of Judas Iscariot in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar. Role which sees him sing the title "Superstar", a flagship title which will be a real hit in the Charts.


But it was especially in 1975 that his notoriety exploded when he performed the magnificent ballad "Say it ain’t so, Joe", a major title in his discography and which remains cult to this day.


We had to wait until 1984 to see him repeat a near feat when the single "One night in Bangkok" was released, another flagship single that set all Dancefloor on fire.


He enjoyed a last major success in 1993 with a French-language title "Une femme un homme" which he performed in duet with Marie Carmen. Title which will know its heyday in Quebec.

Clips :


1965 ... at the origin of the beginnings of the genesis...billions of years ago ... It is difficult to imagine at this stage the grandiose career that awaits this young singer ...



1967 ... a tone and style typical of those years. Very much in tune with the times. But that is not enough for the moment to distinguish the singer from the mass ...



1969 ... the title and the role that will change everything. A passage from shadow to light which is done in a shattering way. HU-GE !



1975 ... but the real beginning of consecration, here it is ! He signs here one of the most beautiful ballads of the 70s and of the twentieth century period. A musical monument which elevates him One Shot to the rank of planetary star. MAS-TER-FUL !



1977 ... and what about that one ! He did it again a year later with a title just as strong and just as inspired. Two titles in quick succession that make him, and unquestionably, one of the best artists of his generation



1978 ... always in minimalist mode, acoustic limit. And it works again. When the inspiration is there, no need for a symphony orchestra to sublimate a title ...



1979 ... still so fine, still so sweet. A register of 'With emotions' that he masters perfectly and which sees him produce a large caliber title after a large caliber title ...



1979 ... an Intimist domain that he really masters to perfection. The proof once again with this title to the mad lyricism and which paradoxically will know only a very limited success in the Charts ...



1979 ... the sound evolves, like the style. Slowly but surely. A mandatory and above all beneficial change in view of what is on the horizon during the next decade ...



1980 ... a new decade which starts off with a bang thanks to the soundtrack of Diane Kurys' film "Cocktail Molotov". Of course, this title will not do better than its predecessor in the Charts but it is not without interest, it is clear



1982 ... his first big hit of the decade. Just a trial run for what will follow...and which will be even more HUGE !



1984 ... the ultimate planetary consecration with this HUGE intergalactic hit that sets every Dancefloor on fire and will surely remain as one of the biggest Dance hits of the decade. MAS-TER-FUL !



1984 ... a year which will prove to be exceptional for the artist. And definitively consecrate him as one of the greatest artists of the 1980s !



1985 ... a quality sequel, but how can you compete with such an inspired previous year ? Mission almost impossible ...



1986 ... Murray goes easy and takes us back, without too many convictions, a title of Belouis Some. Bad pick as they say ...



1990 ... the end of the 1980s which turned out to be more difficult to negotiate than expected. Suddenly, he provides with a new cover, this time from Phylis Nelson. It becomes a habit the covers. Attention danger...



1993 ... back in force with a much more inspired title which shows that Murray still has some under the pedal. It was time !



1993 ... the same title in a shocking but above all charming duo version. A nice title to end a magnificent adventure which will have produced several titles of very, very high caliber. What more...



1995 ... come on, it's not quite finished but it is clear that he does more some figuration now. This does not prevent him from still producing this kind of title with more than certain inspiration ...


1995... the adventure will continue no matter what. Admittedly, far from the top of the Charts on the Singles side, but it will be a little better on the albums side, on the other hand...



2007...we will lose sight of him for nearly 12 years and we thought the case was definitely closed. But it was very bad to know him, that's for sure...



2007...because what he continues to offer is far from devoid of interest, it is clear. It must be said that talent is not lost as a general rule...



2008...the end of the 2000s saw him motivated like never before. He had nothing more to say for quite a few years and the inspiration is back at first sight...



2008...we therefore inevitably ask for more. It will delight fans to see him pumped up and ready to continue the adventure at all costs...



2008... now remains to be seen if he is ready to return the following decade. He is the only one to know the answer and we should be quickly fixed...



2012...and here is the answer. He did not intend to stop in such a good way and said to himself that as long as the basic fans are there, there is no reason not to believe in it...



2012... and we necessarily believe in it with him. Afterwards, will he manage to be as productive during this new decade as during the previous one, good question...



2012... there will be no other opus during this decade 2010 unfortunately. But as with him nothing is ever finished, it could be that we find him at one time or another...



Top Bonus : a magnificent live version of its flagship title. Rarely do Live versions manage to transcend extraordinary titles of this size...
