Alison Moyet – Invisible (The Transparent Mix) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on January 26th, 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Invisible” is a song recorded by Alison Moyet in 1984, written by Lamont Dozier (of the songwriting team Holland–Dozier–Holland), from her album Alf.

Reaching #21 on the UK Singles Chart, the song went as high as #6 in Ireland, and gave Moyet her third Irish top 10 hit of the year. The single went even higher in New Zealand, peaking at #4, her second consecutive top ten hit after “All Cried Out” reached #6. The song is also the first American release from the album and is Moyet’s most successful single in that country, reaching #31 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the spring of 1985 and becoming her only US Top 40 hit, either solo or with Yazoo, thus far.

The b-side was the Marvin Gaye song “Hitch Hike” on which she receives backing from Darts.

Mick Jagger – Ruthless People (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on January 23rd, 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

Side A

2015 Re-Rip!
Newly Remastered!
First Time In 24 Bit Flac!

Originally posted March 28, 2011

“Ruthless People” is the theme song for the 1986 black comedy, starring Danny DeVito, Bette Midler, Judge Reinhold and Helen Slater. It also features Bill Pullman as a supporting role in his film debut.

The song was co-written by Mick Jagger, Daryl Hall and Eurythmics co-member Dave Stewart and performed by Jagger. Assuming the song would be a hit, “Weird Al” Yankovic requested (and received) permission from Jagger to record a parody version, “Toothless People”, for his upcoming Polka Party! album. When Jagger’s song failed to crack the Top 40, Yankovic considered not recording his version; because Jagger had “authorized” the parody, however, he decided failing to produce it would be an insult to the artist and recorded it.

The movie version features different lyrics from the single version.

Elton John/Millie Jackson – Act Of War (Remix Number Two) (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on January 22nd, 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Act Of War” is a 1985 single with lyrics by Elton John’s longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin, this song uses war as a metaphor for a stormy interpersonal relationship. It was the era of the Cold War, when the United States and Russia had nuclear weapons ready for attack. Explosions appear in the song to encourage the theme, and the video opens with the United States president answering his phone near the “button” which would supposedly launch the missiles. The jelly beans he eats are a reference to Ronald Reagan, the real president at the time who enjoyed the treats. It’s a catchy and upbeat tune from a resurgent Elton John, perhaps with an anti-nuclear sentiment similar to “99 Luftballons,” but it couldn’t get traction in America, where the song was ignored. “Act Of War” was a top 40 hit in the UK reaching #32.

Elton duets with soul singer Millie Jackson on this song. Jackson is an R&B star well known in the black community, but just under the mainstream radar. Like Tina Turner, who was first offered the duet but turned it down, Jackson has impressive looks and a stunning voice, and she could have crossed over to the Pop world had things gone a bit differently. In an interview with Millie Jackson, she explained: “Didn’t happen. Don’t care. In America I think in order to be a pop star you’ve got to have management. And I always managed myself. I was never looking to become that crossover pop star. Let white folks cross over to me. I call myself the poor people’s queen. Because once you get to the top there’s only one way to go.”

“Act Of War” was released only as a single, but later it was added to Elton’s “Ice on Fire” CD, having been recorded the same year. The song also features guitar by Nik Kershaw.

Several remixes were released for “Act Of War” this UK only limited edition contains exclusive remixes by Australian remixer/producer Julian Mendelsohn.

Olivia Newton-John – Heart Attack (US 7″)

Posted by DjPaulT on January 21st, 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. front

“Heart Attack” was one of two new songs recorded for the 1982 (Double Platinum) greatest hits package titled Olivia’s Greatest Hits Vol. 2. The song was the first single released from the album. The success of “Physical” led to an international tour and the release of her second hits collection, the double platinum Olivia’s Greatest Hits Vol. 2 (No. 16 Pop), which yielded two more Top 40 singles: “Heart Attack” (No. 3 Pop) and “Tied Up” (No. 38 Pop). In 1983, Alvin and the Chipmunks covered the song for their TV series episode “Angelic Alvin” (with new lyrics created for the episode).

The song features American saxophonist, composer, arranger, conductor and bandleader of the west coast jazz/jazz fusion ensemble the L.A. Express Tom Scott on horns. An innovative music video directed by Brian Grant recieved heavy airplay on MTV.

Even though there are no remixes or edits of “Heart Attack” I still wanted to post it for those of us who love hearing these tracks in their vinyl glory. I also wanted to bookend it with yesterdays “Tied Up” post. Olivia was an important part of 70’s & 80’s pop music paving the way for artists like Madonna and Taylor Swift. Olivia’s music video’s were innovative and pioneering winning the first ever Grammy for a long form video album in 1983 “Olivia Physical”.
