In 1987, I never thought that I'd one day be writing a flavorful review about 80s pop icon, Rick Astley, especially since I was an avid fan and devotee of Brit and American punk. Now, however, I have a nostalgic place for the likes of him, ABC and other stewards of romantic, sugar coated dance music of the 80s. "Never Gonna Give You Up" is a sassy, energetic dance tune that just ignites a desire to shake a leg and bump hips with your mate. Give it a spin and you'll be spinning on the dance floor before too long!

Came onto the music scene, amazed us with his powerful voice skills, and belted several hit songs about relationships. This song, "Never Gonna Give You Up", refers to taking a friendship to the next level. A lot of people relate well to the opposite sex, and most have at least one of those friends as a true, close confidante, who hears, then listens, to how the people they date treat them so bad. Rick help us to not hold back by singing that 'your true love is right in front of you as you speak'.

His early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Whenever You Need Somebody came out in '87, I think he really came into his own, commercial and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Rick has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humor.

In '87, Rick released this, his most accomplished single. I think his undisputed masterpiece is "Never Gonna Give You Up", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of monogamy, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the man himself.

I love a song like this; lots of positive energy and good values. Maybe I'm corny but every time I hear this song I get busy with things and just have a brighter outlook. Astley has a huge voice and carries out a melody that catches your attention.

I got Rickrolled (just Wikipedia it) and the sincerely cheesy music video reminded me what a fun song this is. It's got that mechanical yet enthusiastic Stock Aitken Waterman production, and Rick Astley has a nice set of pipes. 80s forevar!

His 1991 "Cry for Help" is a sweeter, better song.

Found this song, thought it was the real deal but it was a cover. Searched for, and found, the original for 30 cents more. Wasted 99 cents but the 30 cents more I spent made a million dollar difference.

An under appreciated 1980s classic

This is just one of those iconic road trip songs one must have along with the BeeGees, David Bowie's "Let's Dance," and anything by John Denver. It will keep you awake, for sure.
