Retrovision: DAF- Brothers

"Brothers" was the thirteenth single release for the German-American duo formation DAF which was released 30 years ago. The song was taken from the album '1st Step to Heaven' and it is one of our favorite tunes from them although it is considered as a lowpoint of their musical career.

PRINCE 1958-2016

The lights were already purple everywhere when we received the News about Prince's passing away. On our Blog, we were not really following to what he was up to in the recent years, but he was always present in our retro charts. One is certain, the music world has lost another genius and true talent, the artist par excellence who has written and recorded most of his music. He will certainly live on in our hearts and be the inspiring star for the new generations with the opus that encompasses more than three decades. RIP
