80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Toni Basil – Do You Wanna Dance (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on January 5th, 2012



This is the last of the Toni Basil series all of her official 12″ vinyl mixes from the 80’s are now on the site. I hope that you have enjoyed it!

“Do You Wanna Danc” is a cover of the 1973 Bobby Blue classic and was only released in the UK. “Do You Wanna Dance” was also the last single released from Toni Basil asside from various remixes of her clasic Mickey. “Do You Wanna Dance” failed to make an impact and did not chart.

In related Toni Basil news Olivia Newton-John will be releasing “Mickey” as the first single from the soundtrack of her new film “A Few Best Men” in which she co-stars with Xavier Samuel. Music featured in the film has been recorded by Olivia Newton-John and remixed by International and local DJs and producers such as Chew FU (official remixes for pop artists including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Timbaland, Mariah Carey, Roulette (who has support from some of the worlds Djing elite, such as Armand Van Helden & Kissy Sellout) and Archie who has supported Black Eyed Peas, Moby and Tiesto to name a few.

“Mickey” will be sent to radion on January 9, 2012 and the film opens in Australia on January 26, 2012 and worldwide later in the year.

    I remember requesting this some time ago and I’m glad that it got re-posted. I assume that this is an improved and better version of the previous one. 🙂

    Do You Wanna Dance and Street Beat are two of my fave Toni Basil singles. Thank you very much DjPaulT!
