REQUEST

“Symptoms of True Love” is the second single from Tracie Spencer’s self-titled debut album. The single was released in 1988. It was written by German composer team Irmgard Klarmann and Felix Weber. Unlike her first single (which was a ballad), this song was an uptempo club/dance track. The theme of the song focuses on Spencer discovering that she is suffering from “symptoms of true love” and lists the causes.

“Symptoms of True Love” was Tracie’s first single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching number 38. On the Hot Black Singles chart, it peaked at a respectable number 11.

Posted by DjPaulT on June 23rd, 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990

A. Front

“Rockin’ Over the Beat” is a song by Belgian dance act Technotronic. It first appeared on their debut album Pump Up the Jam in 1989 and was released as a single the following year. It is accredited to “Technotronic featuring Ya Kid K”, who co-wrote the track with Jo Bogaert (aka Thomas De Quincey).

The song is an upbeat house tune espousing the pleasures of dancing. It is representative of the positive and melodic feel of the Pump Up the Jam album. “Rockin’ Over the Beat” was a respectable hit for Technotronic; it reached #9 in the UK, #11 in Ireland and breached the Billboard Hot 100 at #95.

Most 12″ releases featured three remixes by Bernard Sumner of New Order: the “Piccadilly”, “Hacienda” and “Instrumental” mixes, all of which were prefixed with “Rockin’ Over Manchester” (where Sumner is from).

The Escape Club – Wild, Wild West (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on June 22nd, 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988
A. Front
hype

Originally posted March 25, 2010

“Wild, Wild West” is a song by The Escape Club from their similarly named debut album, Wild Wild West. The single hit the charts in late 1988 eventually reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of November 12, 1988, making The Escape Club the only British artist to have a No. 1 hit in America while never charting in the UK.

The lyrics, with phrases such as “I love her eyes and her wild, wild hair,” “heading for the ’90s, living in the wild, wild west,” are augmented with gunshot, laser and blaster sound effects. Critics have noted that portions of the song bore a strong similarity to Elvis Costello’s “Pump It Up” due to the distinct drum beat and vocal patterns during the verses.

The music video is noted for using mirror imaging of actors to give the illusion of disembodied arms and legs.

In 1989, Wally Wingert parodied it on the Dr. Demento radio show as “Adam West,” in response to the casting of Michael Keaton as the title character for that year’s Batman film.

I added as bonus tracks the “Artillery Mix” and “Bacapella” which I lifted from the US 12″ promo these versions are exclusive to this release. “We Can Run” is a non-lp track.

Erasure – Chains Of Love (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on June 17th, 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

Side 1

“Chains of Love” is a song by British synthpop duo Erasure, released in May 1988 as their ninth single overall.

The song was released by Mute Records as the second single from Erasure’s third studio album The Innocents. In the United States, Sire Records released it as the first single. The album version was produced by Stephen Hague and was slightly remixed for its single release (most notably the album version starts cold, while the radio version contains a short synthesizer pattern as an intro).

“Chains of Love” became Erasure’s sixth consecutive Top 20 hit on the UK singles chart, just missing the Top 10 by peaking at number eleven. In the United States, it became Erasure’s mainstream breakthrough by climbing to number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100 and becoming the group’s first entry on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. It also hit number four on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. “Chains of Love” remains as Erasure’s highest-charting U.S. pop hit.

The song, written by Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, is an uptempo dance-oriented synthpop track with Clarke’s signature analogue sound and Bell’s lyrics about breaking through any restrictions or stereotypes of what love should be. The lyrics allude subtly to Bell’s desire for wider acceptance of homosexual couples, his pain evident from the opening lines “How can I explain when there are few words I can choose/How can I explain when words get broken”. The chorus is memorable for Bell’s use of falsetto. The music video featured Clarke and Bell performing the song while being hoisted through the air by thick, metal chains.

The instrumental dub as well as the remix radio edit without intro are exclusivley promotional versions/edits.
