    Thanks Paul, Love DD! Quite an unexpected follow up to Barbara, but that’s probably part of what keeps it fun for you. We are grateful for your stellar work as always… Joe

    Don’t know this one, so it’s a surprise post to me. Let’s find out…

    And if you have the 12 inch by Miguel Bose – The Eighth Wonder, that would be awesome Paul! Such a great track, and superb American remixes. I think that one will surprise many BTG’ers.

    Hi Paul

    Great – and somewhat surprising – addition to the canon. Brings back memories. Yummer Yummer Man and Cathouse were fantastic tracks too – though less dance-oriented. She also appeared in Neil Jordan’s The Company of Wolves.

    Hi Jonathan yes those are great tracks. Thanks for letting me know about Neil Jordan 🙂

    You’re welcome Tyson. An after hours club I used to go to here in Tulsa called The Max would play the video for this song and it would pack the dance floor. I remember dancing to this and loving it. Grat times 🙂

    I was just thinking of this artist the other day. She had two US albums on Sire and then disappeared. Thanks for this unexpected treat.

    It’s surprises like this Paul that keep me coming back again and again!! I was a huge fan of her “Cathouse” record and I love this one too. I lean more towards dance rock and new wave and the alternative of dance music. I love how your tastes are like the rainbow: colorful and full spectrum. You are always fabulous. Thanks so much for these musical adventures.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Thank you Jeff I really liked this ong and the album “Inky Bloaters” such a great artist. I am like you I tend to prefer the more new wave alternative dance stuff more than pop commercial dance. Cheers!

    Along with Lene Lovich, Danielle was “the” female vocalist I’d listen to in the 80’s when Madonna and Belinda were blaring from other’s radios. Her style was her own (visually and musically), and always spoke creatively to me (she wasn’t bad to look at either).

    I’m glad she’s still being creative, although I wish she’d return with a full album again. 🙂
