Strange Smurfs...




Not much news about Bad Boys Blue other than the fact that it's a German band formed in 1984 by producer Tony Hendrik and his wife Karin Van Haaren. Group consisting of Trevor ‘Supat’ Taylor, John McInerney and Andrew Thomas.


Group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the huge single "You’re a woman" released in 1985.


As such alone, we had to devote this article to them.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1984 ... nothing exceptional for this first title but a good job. Even if it will not be classified, it shows an obvious potential on the part of this trio, to say the least surprising ...



1985 ... and from the second title, it's the jackpot ! The group signs here the biggest success of its career and at the same time obtains its direct ticket for posterity. HU-GE !



1985 ... a BIG year 1985 with a second top hit in the wake. Admittedly, this one will not have the same level of success as its predecessor but will still have a nice run in the Charts ...



1986 ... the rest will prove to be a little more complicated to manage than expected. The level of success is in free fall and will now be limited exclusively to the Germanic sphere ...



1986 ... this title will not even be classified. Despite an obvious quality of titles, the group can no longer hook the public. Hard law of the trade ...



1986 ... furtive return of success on this title. From now on, the group will only do extra work and will never be in contact with the best ...



1987 ... and yet the group continues to produce quality. Certainly, we are not at the level of the best Dance hits of the moment but frankly, we are not very far from it !



1988 ... the year 1988 will see the production of several titles of very uneven quality. We will only remember this one who is really the only one to hold the road



1989 ... which will undoubtedly remain as one of their most successful titles. The group no longer touches the stars for a few years now, but the adventure continues to be beautiful and that's the main thing !



1990 ... a rather successful transition to the next decade, which above all allows the group to stay afloat. We imagine that the 90s will be their last decade of existence but for the moment, there is no danger in the remains as they say !



1991 ... the style will have, little, or almost not changed since their inception. It is therefore a miracle that they are still there but as long as it lasts, you might as well enjoy it ...



1991 ... here they are in Enigma mode. Style is all the rage in Germany and especially around the world. It would therefore have been a shame not to ride the wave ...



1992 ... their only title classified across the Atlantic since their creation. Very surprisingly, it will not even be classified in Germany, which had been their only goodwill for years until then. Go figure ...



1992 ... the titles follow one another but have very different destinies. This title will not even be classified while it is far from unworthy. Sometimes you don't have to try to understand ...



1993 ... the group has been able to adapt perfectly to new trends and yet they are hardly profitable. Cruel disillusion which unfortunately will not be the last ...



1994 ... there is really the Bad Boys Blue of the 80s and the Bad Boys Blue of the 90s. And in both cases, the quality is there every time. But that, the public did not really understand ...



1995 ... the production of titles continues to be consistent despite a very limited level of success. The main thing is to believe in it as they say ...



1998 ... the great adventure continues and will continue for the next decade. A group with obvious talent which will have produced an impressive number of titles with a level of success which will have unfortunately fluctuated somewhat ...



1999...even if the adventure will continue, we're not going to lie to each other, the best years are now behind them. A sequel that will therefore be more prestige than anything else...



2000...we therefore find them at the beginning of the following decade with the desire to continue the adventure at all costs. Who could blame them...?



2003... especially since they will succeed in landing a new hit with this title. Certainly small caliber and only in Germany but it's still better than nothing as they say...



2008...they will produce few titles during this decade but they have at least the merit of trying to exist and this whatever the results in the Charts. A desire to do well that we can only salute !



2009...a 2000 decade that they will have managed to get through without too much difficulty but at the back of the pack, it is clear. Afterwards, as long as they continue to enjoy doing what they do, isn't that the main thing...



2020...then not much during the whole decade of 2010. The group disappeared completely from the radar and here he is back in this new decade of 2020. To do what, good question...



2020... here they are re-boosted as never before at first sight. Like many former glories of the 80s, they are feeling their wings in this new decade...



2021... new titles follow one another at an impressive pace. Let's just hope they keep up the pace for the decade...



Top Bonus : a remixed version of their flagship title from 1987 which has the merit of making it a version that fits perfectly with the latest musical developments...
