Clips :


1982 ... a first title which will launch in a sensational way the career of the singer. It must be said that with Patrick Cowley at the helm, we suspected that the result would exceed all expectations. And that's the case. HU-GE !



1983 ... after reaching the heights from the first title, we suspect that the rest will be a little more complicated to manage than expected. Which will unfortunately be the case ...



1983 ... even if the singer will never repeat the feat of 'Right on target', what he continues to offer largely holds up. It's already that !



1983 ... a Dance orientation which will forever remain his favorite reference. Afterwards, rightly or wrongly, that's something else ...



1984 ... anyway, a know-how in Dance more than obvious. And typical of this mid-1980s across the Atlantic ...



1985 ... nothing exceptional anymore but titles that hold up. A singer who will not remain as the most gifted of his generation but who will at least have left a mark in history ...



1985 ... it unrolls quietly without asking too many questions. And always in a style that has not changed since its inception. It might be time to think about what happened next ...



1986 ... you had to dare this one. He delivers here a Dance version of one of Cyndi Lauper's flagship titles dating from 1984. A version at the very least original and which has the merit of offering a very different version of this title based 100 % Intimist ...



1986 ... here he is in Hi-NRG mode, the mid-1980s oblige. He tries to adapt to the latest trends of the moment but this will not relaunch his career unfortunately ...



1986 ... nothing seems to discourage him anyway. Even if he has only been playing supporting roles for a long time, his will to continue whatever happens commands respect ...



1987 ... more than one in his place would have thrown in the towel long ago. But he continues to believe in it, an astonishing endism and above all for the less risky ...



1992 ... taking over Chris Isaak's masterpiece from 1990 will unfortunately not change the situation. This version revisited in Dance mode is nice but nothing more ...



1993 ... he attacks a new masterpiece namely the 'Drive' of the Cars dating from 1984. And as for the previous title, the comparison will once again be against him ...



1993 ... he's going to do them all to us ! After Chris Isaak, The Cars, he is now attacking the legendary title of U2 dating from 1987. And the same sanction as for the previous titles ...



1996 ... a title already more inspired and which fits perfectly with the latest trends of the moment. We thought he was lost for good but this title shows that he can still hope for a little while ...



1997 ... to 2 is even better ! After the luxury covers, he tries the duo. And my faith, on this one, the result is not that bad ...



2007 ... 10 years will pass between this title and the previous title. He will have gone through the 80s, then the 90s and here he is tackling the 2000s. Never tired the guy ...



2009 ... still there after a little more than 25 years of career, who would have believed it ! Nothing seems to stop him, neither the time, nor the few results in the Charts. We can therefore imagine that we will find him again the following decade ...
