Sunglasses at Night – Libération


Corey Hart (1983)

Very first single from Montrealer Corey Hart, who has never been able to do better in his 40-year career, Sunglasses at Night is the very example of the interplanetary tube of which everyone knows the words, often unwillingly. A quick glance at the video is enough however to plunge back into the worst of the 80s: white shirt open on hairless chest, icy women with too much make-up, hard FM guitar solo… The reasons for the success are decidedly an unfathomable mystery.

Tiga & Zyntherius (2001)

Recaptured and conscientiously slaughtered over the years, Sunglasses at Night had a dark and sexy incarnation thanks to the grace of Montrealer (again) Tiga and Finnish Zyntherius (aka Jori Hulkkonen). The first real hit of the electroclash wave initiated by the German DJ Hell, the cover remains, twenty years later, a classic of this movement from the early 2000s which combined italo-disco, black but never virulent electro, vocals and a pop format. The duo have never done better since.
