It started with blood cancer, and it ended with Drago vanquished. In between there was a live music reimagining of the song-length montages in Rocky IV and either side was this mix. I took 1985 as my fruit and squished together 46 Top 40 jams to keep the adrenalin pumping from the USA! USA! of The Boss and Lionel Richie (soundtracking that great other Russia/USA culture movie White Nights) to the UK! UK! of The Style Council and Jaki Graham. If you enjoy it – donate to Anthony Nolan here. And keep up with the Montage boys here.
