Retrolicious 2015 Singapore: Color Me Badd, Tommy Page, and All-4-One 

Thanks to Matthew for the concert invite!

The greatest throwback songs of the 80s and 90s are upon us all. Retrolicious, do the funk! Ever since Retrolicious serenaded Singapore back in 2010, it has since then transformed the music landscape into this we-want-classics kind of attitude every year. Old school is cool. Reunion rocks. Classics showdown. Who’s excited, raise your wigs?

Retrolicious has brought casette tape songs into full life, bringing big music wishlisters like (2010) Debbie Gibson, Johnny Hates Jazz, Rick Astley, (2011) Belinda Carlisle, Bananarama, The Human League, (2012) Wang Chung, Tiffany, Howard Jones, Alphaville, (2013) Belinda Carlisle, Bananarama, Rick Astley. Now 2015, Retrolicious returned with an even stronger lineup: Color Me Badd, Tommy Page, and All-4-One. Now I don’t know about you, but I think this is a perfect chance to turn back time, live and relive the past, no regrets.

The iconic hilltop landmark, Fort Canning Park, has set the right note and tone for this year’s Retrolicious concert. Its sprawling area and heritage-like structures made the throwbackfest a clear model of awesome. Bright lights, sweet sounds, huge tents, VIP sections. The place was like a 100th year high school grand reunion. Everyone’s acting a little slim-shaddy: one minute uncool – other second – cool kid represent.

The 3,000+ of classic-wooing crowd sang their hearts out to almost every tune that was played by the artists. You’d see folks standing up, getting cozy, dancing around, raising hands, doing all sorts of things and having a really great time. Everyone relished in the feeling of the tremendous throwback video showed during that night, so much history, so much favorites. The music video documentary piece of perfection was one of the highlights. Whoever you are, can I borrow your genius? Great job for coming up with that video!

Color Me Badd, Tommy Page, and All-4-One took over the stage like the big pros that they are, sang their hearts out, refueled their soulful energies from the rousing crowd. No one could stop singing to every song and lyric that came out from the stage. Just like how Color Me Badd sang it “What more could a man ask for, what more could I ask for” – the night was crazzzzzzzzy Badd…ass!

Retrolicious 2015 Singapore had this certain keepsake for all the right reasons. It brought out the universal love for 80s and 90s music in everyone, fun side, high school kind of spirit and all.  Now, 2016? this (un)cool kid can’t wait.
