“Life In A Northern Town” by Dream Academy

5 06 2013

Here’s a song that is very 1980s (and I mean that in a good way): “Life In A Northern Town” by Dream Academy. They did at least two different videos for this song, but I think that this one is the best.

According to the All Music Guide, this song was co-produced by David Gilmour (the Pink Floyd dude, of course) and is an elegy for Nick Drake, an early 1970s British singer-songwriter who died in 1974, possibly by suicide (family members dispute this). Dream Academy split up in 1991 when their third album proved unsuccessful.
