Nik Kershaw – When A Heart Beats (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on August 24th, 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“When A Heart Beats” is a song by the English singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Nik Kershaw. It was released as the lead single from his third solo studio album, Radio Musicola, being Kershaw’s eighth single. The single features the track, “Wild Horses” as the B-side, which was originally released on Kershaw’s previous album “The Riddle”.

Originally posted January 4, 2011

“Male Stripper” was the debut single by Hi-NRG band Man 2 Man also known as Man to Man. Formed in New York City the band consisted of brothers Miki Zone and Paul Zone.
“Male Stripper” was the bands biggest hit, teaming up with cult electro producer Man Parrish. Originally released in the United Kingdom in 1986 on the Bolts Records label, “Male Stripper” was a big club hit throughout the autumn and peaked at No. 64 on the UK Singles Chart. In early 1987, “Male Stripper” charted again in the UK, and this time the song became an even bigger hit, spending five weeks in the Top 10 and two weeks at No. 4. Miki Zone had died of spinal meningitis caused by AIDS on December 31, 1986. “Male Stripper” was a breakout crossover pop hit and in March of 1987 Man 2 Man appeared on a segment in the European music TV show “Top Of The Pops”. Due to the death of Miki, Paul Zone decided to rename the act Man to Man.
