Bronski Beat: un successo lungo 30 anni


Il successo è quello del celebre singolo ‘Smalltown Boy’ che nel giugno del 1984 veniva pubblicato dai Bronski Beat. Per l’occasione Jimmy Somerville ha registrato una nuova (bellissima) versione che viene così presentata:

“June 2014 marks a very special anniversary — 30 years since the release of Smalltown Boy. Originally released in 1984, the song addressed key issues in 1980′s LGBT culture, and brought homosexuality and homophobia into the pop mainstream. The song deals with loneliness, rejection by family and society and also being bullied because of supposed differences. The song has been and continues to be an inspiration to many people. It has also inspired so many, varied cover versions and been celebrated musically worldwide, as you may have seen from the recent videos posted on Jimmy’s Facebook page.”
