ErasureErasure are an English synthpop duo, consisting of singer and songwriter Andy Bell and songwriter and keyboardist Vince Clarke. They formed in London, England, UK and entered the music scene in 1985 with their debut single “Who Needs Love Like That”. Following the release of their fourth single “Sometimes”, the duo established itself on the UK Singles Chart and became one of the most successful artists of the mid-to-late 1980s and early 1990s.

From 1986 to 2007, Erasure achieved 24 consecutive Top 40 hits in the UK, while having 3 Top 20 hits in the US (on the Billboard Hot 100): ”The Circus”, “A Little Respect”, ”Blue Savannah”, “Chains of Love”, ”Love to Hate You”, “Always”, ”Breathe” and ”In My Arms”.

The duo are most popular in their native UK and mainland Europe (especially Germany, Denmark and Sweden) and also in South America (especially in Argentina, Chile and Peru). To date, Erasure have sold over 25 million albums worldwide.

The band is also popular within the LGBT community for whom the openly gay singer Andy Bell has become a gay icon. – Wikipedia

Artist Countdown: Grand Funk Railroad Top 25 Hits 12p ET @RadioMax

GFRGrand Funk Railroad (also known as Grand Funk) is an American blues rock band that was highly popular during the 1970s. Grand Funk Railroad toured to packed arenas worldwide. David Fricke of Rolling Stone Magazine said “You cannot talk about rock in the 1970′s without talking about Grand Funk Railroad!” A popular take on the band during its heyday was that, although the critics hated them, audiences loved them. The band’s name is a play on words of the Grand Trunk Western Railroad, a railroad line that ran through the band’s home town of Flint, Michigan. – Wikipedia
