Aldo Nova - Fantasy

"Give you love if the price is right"

It's time for a quick trip back to the 80's with a Canadian I only just discovered. Apparently Fantasy was something of a hit at the beginning of the decade, though I've never heard it before. You can't beat the opening, though. Ominous synths and helicopter blades. How dramatic. This guy's been credited as the first to do the whole 80's glam/hair rock made so popular by bands like Def Leppard and Poison. The synth work on this track is what really stood out to me initially, especially the blaring riff that opens the first verse. The melody's great as well, totally instant yet kinda sleazy at the same time. But out of everything, the video's the real standout--a campy, low-budget mess with a spotted catsuit. Epic.
