Real Life

"Catch me I´m falling" and "Send me an Angel". Do you remember them? Great songs!

This was one of the 80' band I never liked. I have always thought that "Send me an angel" was a really boring song. Sorry!

WOV!!! "Send Me An Angel" That song is so COOL, especially PSB remix, havenīt you heard that?

*Do You Believe, in heaven above, do you believe in love? Don`t tell a lie donīt be a false untrue it all comes back to you... etc.*
Great lyrics too I think and singer sounds a bit like a Klaus Meine from the Scorpions :)

"It`s me - Julian"

Real Life were/are great,possibly Australia's nearest to a major contribution to the Synth Pop genre,i cant think of any others.Send Me An Angel is a classic,wasnt it in one of the Teen Wolf films???? There is an mp3 going around which is referred to as a Pet Shop Boys remix but im afraid that its fake.I'd like to know who really did it tho as it is a good version.God Tonight is another great Real Life track,worth checking out if anyone hasnt heard it.

Same counts for me! The 12" of "Catch me Iīm falling" must be one of the best extended versions ever. Especially I like the beginning with this computer voice. Itīs fantastic!
Another Real Life favourite of mine is "Face to Face". The 12" of it is also wonderful.
This is 80īs music at its best!

Well, they are back:

http://www.reallifemusic.net/

The new music is very different from the good old 80s, but check it out yourselves, you can download some tracks - itīs way too hard for me, but I believe some of you might find it interesting. I can recognize the voice and they still use synths, but...very hard, oh well.

Hmm... I still like the old Real Life but DAMN!! The new stuff is great (if you like that underground/hardcore sound) <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
