    Paul is very correct. Pete Hammond had a hand in many MY productions and remixes. Would it be interesting to write about the relation between MY and Pete Hammond on the new website? We are currently working on the new Musical Youth website. The social media have been set up already, so you can find Musical Youth on Twitter, Facebook and GooglePlus now.

    Great job Paul! I wish you had all the MY 12″es that I have so I did not have to transfer them myself 😉

    Thanks Paul, for fulfilling not just a request, but quite a mega-request. Appreciate you making it complete.
    There were so many songs with this Heartbreaker title around that time…
    Dolly Parton, Pat Benatar and then Dionne Warwick all had hits with that title. And then Mariah Carey and will.i.am more recently had success with it too.
    Among all these heartbreaking titles, Dionne’s has to be my pick.
    So Paul, are you going youthful tomorrow? or going disco?

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Ric I would have to pick Dionne first as well then Dolly. I think this remix set was my favorite of the lot. Tomorrow will be Disco Friday! as promised last week 🙂
