Let’s go back to 1984. 80’s Music is in it’s high point. All sorts of bands that came out that made a mark on that era. Bronski Beat had a hit song called “Smalltown Boy” and I listened to it a lot. One of my favorites.
To refresh your memory, here is the song/video.
Fast Forward 30 Years
Recently, Jimmy Somerville, the lead singer of Bronski Beat, re-recorded an acoustic snippet of “Smalltown Boy” Listen below and I think you’ll be just as impressed as I was. Damn, that man can still sing. Talk about not losing your vocal abilities over the years.
And for an added surprise, here’s Jimmy joining a street performer last year, during a rendition of “Smalltown Boy”
I love the “is it you??” “Yeah, it’s me.” How did you find that last video? Classic.
