    Another excellent choice, thanks Paul!
    Poor old Nick is probably a key example of why people love to bag the 80s – ‘style over substance’, and so on. But I’d much prefer him over the generic (read: boring) pop ‘stars’ of today!

    I agree Mark 🙂

    Thanks Paul! By the way, will you post the 12″ of Junge Romer by Falco with the Extended remix and dub sometime.


    Mark Z Reply:

    I second that request! Along with the mixes of ‘Emotional’, ‘Do it Again’ and the English versions of ‘Jeanny’ (sorry for being so greedy, but hey, it’s Falco!)

    (((vibrating with excitement)))


  8. Marcelino Says:

    Great songs!
    I think We can’t ignore the hit “I promised Myself”, It was a nice refresh when I was embedded in all that Acid House and Techno back in my youth…

    Third Time’s the charm!

    Thank you very much Paul…


  9. Jan Says:

    Thank you for this Paul! By far (for me anyway) his best song. Love the 12″ mix! Think that you have just made my day! 😉
