Bananarama - Cruel Summer

Hi to everyone;

i think that this song was influenced by Nile's Guitar style (from 02:22 to 02:40 ,it's more evident).What do you think about it?

Re: Bananarama - Cruel Summer

This song was released in 1983. Nile Rodgers was at his top as producer and also as maker of the 80's sound.
The same year you can find Nile's guitar on such monster hits as Bowie "Let's dance", Hall & Oates "Adult education", Southside Johnny "Trash it up" and I think also INXS "Orginal sin".
It's not a surprise everyone wanted to get the Nile Rodgers guitar sound

Not everyone ;only those who want to be at the top of the charts ;(c'est sympa de parler anglais entre français non?)

Re: Bananarama - Cruel Summer

LOL (MDR en français) il y a un forum en français (le French CHIC Fan Club) pour parler notre belle langue.

Here it's an international forum so courtesy of others fans, I speak english here
