Top Tracks: Michael Oakley – Turn Back Time

I’m a man of simple pleasures; when a song sounds like the soundtrack to a John Hughes movie, and its music video features a DeLorean, then I’m fully on board. After all, if you’re gonna make a music video, why not do it with some style? This new single from Scottish singer/songwriter Michael Oakley, with its layered synths, electronic beats and bittersweet lyrics, is nothing short of pure retro heaven. The delightfully nostalgic ‘Turn Back Time’ recalls all the best qualities of 80s pop music (and pop culture) and offers a suitably cinematic feel. It captures that signature style so perfectly that it makes you wonder whether Michael is cruising around in an actual time machine, bringing with him a prime example of the golden age of pop.
