Two for Tuesday: Rick Astley

You’ve been Rick-rolled!

Rick Astley. What a voice. These are his two big hits in the US. The first, “Never Gonna Give You Up,” was a smash when it came out in 1987. It was everything about the Eighties all rolled into one: a great voice, heavy dance beat, catchy lyrics, attractive dancers (female and male)… is it my imagination, or does he remind you of David Caruso as Horatio Caine from CSI: Miami? That’s what I thought. The second, “Cry For Help,” was recorded after he left his managers and morphed into a soul and adult contemporary singer. He retired in 1993 to be with his wife and young daughter, but came back in 2002 and has been a busy guy, touring all over the world, appearing in Eighties revival concerts and touring with his band The Luddites.
