Paul Young talks about the Magic 80s & bringing his stretchy pants back for his 80s Invasion Tour 2017

Oct 25 2016

As a girl brought up in the 80s, I am a natural fan of Londoner Paul Young (born in Luton) like all my friends in the same 40+ age group. I still remember when a group of us dressed up with a shiny red body top and neon leg warmers prepared for a dance show at school along the tune Love of the Common People which in 1983 was a big hit. When I recently talked to Paul Young, now 60, he gave me the impression to be a nice naturally shy guy who does not particularly like the limelight. At his most famous back in the mid-Eighties, for several years Paul Young was one of the most famous solo artists in the UK and considered to be a heart-throb. 33 years after his first chart hit, he has gone back to his soulful roots in his latest album, Good Thing, which is a collection of classic soul covers.
