    Thanks Paul. Don’t remember this one though anything by Moroder is bound to be good . Your blog without a doubt is the best online . I would’ve never found a lot of these singles on my own.

    A pleasant enough, 80s typical dance track…

    Paul do you have “Paula’s Them” the dance track from the film “The Running Man”?

    Thanks for the upload..


    ex15 Reply:

    U was wondering the same thing lol.


    Ken Reply:

    It was a reference to the “Giorgio by Moroder” track on the Daft Punk album. Obviously not fans of it so. 🙂

    Now look what you’ve done!
    This morning, after seeing this 12″ here on your blog, I’ve spent almost 12 hours trying to track down an original 1984 Summer Olympics LP, or a FLAC rip of same, wherever I can find it.
    Still, thanks for supplying the music that sparks the memories!
