FEATURE 22 - Aztec Camera - Oblivious

This is one of my favorite songs from the Eighties. For me its the combination of a rhumba beat, with a tune that bounces along with optimism and lighthearted brio, that makes it addictive stuff. 'Oblivious' is also a very well written song, one of many (remember 'Somewhere in my Heart'- before the dreadful disco version? ) that the lead singer Roddy Frame composed. Aztec Camera might sound like a band name, but it was really only him. Dig Roddy's hairdo - the shameful things we do in order to be fashionable! Mine fortunately I can keep hidden, and not find them available for all to see on You Tube thirty years later.
