MOONLIGHT DESIRES – At The Movies (2021)

Hamilton, Ontario cover band MOONLIGHT DESIRES is back with another heavy dose of ’80s childhood nostalgia – this time themed around the some of the most iconic films of the era.
With “At The Movies” Moonlight Desires take you on a sonic trip down memory lane – converting classic hits from Dirty Dancing, The Goonies, Karate Kid and The Breakfast Club into modern sounding hard rock bangers.
These guys take a modern, fresh, guitar driven melodic rock twist to these classic ’80s tunes, and add as a bonus a scorching version of 1986’s Kim Mitchell song ‘Patio Lanterns’.

MOONLIGHT DESIRES – Just The Hits- 1981-1985

80s suckers charge the batteries and put your walkman / discman earbuds on… MOONLIGHT DESIRES are here with their album “Just The Hits- 1981-1985“, and take for sure it will put a big smile on your face.
This kind of album needed to be released today. Like literally, whatever day you read this … ‘that day’. If you are paying even the slightest bit of attention to the world today, everything kind of sucks.
You know what doesn’t suck? MOONLIGHT DESIRES covering some of the biggest hits of the ’80s and not just covering them, but infusing them with some steroid, testosterone-driven melodic rock riffs, solos, vocals, punchy drums and, oh yeah… fun.
Hailing from Canada the band features past / present members from bands like…

MOONLIGHT DESIRES – Frankie Goes To Hamilton [remastered reissue]

Accompanying the awesome MOONLIGHT DESIRES album ‘Just The Hits’ the band reissued / remastered their first album “Frankie Goes To Hamilton“. Of course, this one is also all about ’80s covers fun. On “Frankie Goes To Hamilton” MOONLIGHT DESIRES delivered a rollicking arrangement of classic love songs from the Eighties.
It’s really fun – and refreshing – to listen to JOHN WAITE’s “Missing You” done in a cracking riff-driven version something in a current LOVERBOY sound. Or STEVE PERRY’s “Oh Sherrie” driven by pumping bass lines and a stadium-anthem delivery.
The band cover here the GOWAN song from where they took their name, “Moonlight Desires”, and you’ll be surprised to listen to an uptempo take on BELINDA CARLISLE’s hit “Circle in the Sand”.
Oh wait.. is there FOREIGNER’s “I Wanna Know What Love Is”? Really? It’s done here with a speed-up tempo, sharp riffs and a massive chorus. Sacrilege? Not at all, love it!
