    Today the goose bumps come in multiples Paul!! Holy Light Bulbs!! What a fantastic dance jam this is. I especially love the “Hellified Dub Mix” Paul. This is a song that you just can’t find anywhere anymore. I was always hoping for a re-issue of his album on compact disc with all the dance mixes included, but that never materialized. That’s why you’re so important to us Paul. You do the artists proud when you post because you care about their back catalogs and wonderful fidelity. Thank you for this song. I’m so excited. You are such a dynamic person for this. All Hail DjPaulT!!!!!

    Thank you Jeff. I am always shocked that a lot of this music is forgotten by 70’s and 80’s radio stations. They never play this stuff seems like all I hear now days is Elton John or Fleetwood Mac (not a bad thing) but there is so much more out there. Maybe it’s just an Oklahoma thing lol.


    Jeff Reply:

    It’s not an Oklahoma thing Paul. It’s that way even around where I live. Like you said, they seem to have their favorites and forget about these classics. I’m relieved that we can count on you for what you do and for “remembering” forgotten classics that were big hits. You’re a gem Paul. Thanks.

    Francois K remixes are always welcome, although i was not aware of these.

    Thanks again, Paul 🙂

  10. Fred Says:

    Thanks so much, Paul! This is one of those rare set of remixes of a top 80s hit that STILL have never been released anywhere on cd as far as I can tell. Thanks again!!
