Songs They Don't Play On The Radio...Anymore #6

Mention of Cliff Richard's single "We Don't Talk Anymore" over at my friend's excellent blog (Asleep On The Compost Heap), has prompted me to post this. Alan Tarney wrote the aforementioned number one for Cliff. In 1980, Barbara Dixon had a big hit with this inspired piece of Tarney brilliance.

Barbara Dixon "January February" (1980)

He then went on to have a hand in most of those brilliant mid 80s singles by A-ha, before racking up further hits with St. Etienne and Pulp. The man is a legend.
