TODAY IN MUSIC: The Lexicon of Love, the debut studio album by English pop band ABC, was released June 21, 1982, on Mercury Records. The album was a critical and commercial success particularly in the United Kingdom, entering the UK album chart at #1 and producing four UK Top 20 hits: “Tears Are Not Enough”, “Poison Arrow”, “The Look of Love “, and “All My Heart”. The Lexicon of Love was produced by Trevor Horn and features themes of heartache and the search for meaningful relationships. The album did not reach the same heights in America but “Poison Arrow” and “The Look of Love” did crack the Top 40. In 2009, ABC performed the entire album at the Royal Albert Hall in London, accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra. A UK review of the 2004 Deluxe Edition called The Lexicon of Love “a landmark of British pop.” #abc #thelexiconoflove #abcthelexiconoflove #mercuryrecords #uk #ukalbumchart #tearsarenotenough #poisonarrow #thelookoflove #allmyheart #top40 #royalalberthall #london #bbc #bbcconcertorchestra #tonyatlarge #eclectimaniacradioshow #todayinmusic #musichistory

TODAY IN MUSIC: Foreigner’s second studio album Double Vision was released on June 20, 1978, on Atlantic Records. Double Vision peaked at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album has sold in excess of 7 million copies and is one of Foreigner’s best selling releases.. Double Vision produced three hit singles: “Hot Blooded” (#3), “Blue Morning Blue Day” (#15) and the title track. “Double Vision” (the song) was inspired by a New York Rangers hockey game that was on television. After the goalie was helped off the ice after a brutal hit, lead vocalist Lou Gramm recalled, “The announcer said (the goalie) was going to be alright, but was experiencing double vision. A siren went off in my head…Double Vision. Perfect!” A little Foreigner trivia: Foreigner lead guitarist Mick Jones is the step-father of producer Mark Ronson. #foreigner #doublevision #foreignerdoublevision #billboard200 #classicrock #classicalbums #hotblooded #bluemorningblueday #newyorkrangers #hockeygame #lougramm #mickjones #markronson #tonyatlarge #eclectimaniacradioshow #todayinmusic #musichistory
