You’d better stop this playing on my mind

Michael Fortunati aka Pierre Michel Nigro

Michael Fortunati aka Pierre Michel Nigro

It started as an earworm. That 1987 Kylie Minogue hit “I Heard A Rumour”. Except it wasn’t. It was Bananarama. So down the rabbit hole we went to listen to Bananarama hits and that’s how we stumbled across Michael Fortunati and his 1986 hit “Give Me Up”.

WHY. DID. WE. NOT. KNOW. ABOUT. THIS?
It’s Italo Disco Euro Beat keytar gold.
You can even smell the Kouros.
