LE DISQUE DU LUNDI — Bryan Ferry Boys and Girls

January 20th, 2014 · No Comments · By

Ed. Note: Melody Supreme, located at 115 4th St. SE off the Downtown Mall, is Charlottesville’s best record store. The owner Gwen Berthy has impeccable taste and a curatorial hunger matched by few. One of my favorite parts of the store is Gwen’s handwritten notes on records. LE DISQUE DU LUNDI (formerly and crudely anglicized by me as “Melody Mondays”) is Gwen’s online version of those recommendation gems–posted on Nailgun and available at Melody Supreme.

Boys and Girls — Bryan Ferry (EG Records, 1985)

 

We all have a favorite record we don’t brag about loving, and for a long time I never really owned up to cherishing this one. With its electronic drums, abundant synthesizers, sax solos, nausea is sure to follow… Nevertheless, all this fails to take into account the ever-chic Bryan Ferry who with 100% pure 80’s sound, managed to create an incontrovertible classic of sexy dance music full of delicate and subtle compositions. Just you wait; you’re even going to love the studio arrangements! This one is a must for all couples, new as well as old.  Enjoy!
