BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985
Re-Rip Newly Remastered!
Originally I posted this one on May 25, 2010. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!
Released as the second single from Howard Jones’ 1985 album Dream Into Action, “Look Mama” reached #10 in the UK Singles Chart. It was not released as a single in the US, but a different mix to those issued in the UK was included on the US-only remix album Action Replay.
The introduction to the song features some spoken dialogue sampled from the 1974 film Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.
“Look Mama” is written from the standpoint of a child pleading with its over-protective mother to be allowed greater independence and room to develop its own personality.
