    I’m quite curious about today’s posting Paul. To me, Anne Murray will bring back memories of her “You Needed Me” and other Adult contemporary hits from back in the day. I do like Jack White as a producer because of his involvement with Laura Branigan, so my ears are open and ready. Sunch a U-Turn in sound compared to Grace’s “Nipple To The Bottle” but I’m game for something vastly different. Thanks for the variety once again.

    Have a good weekend!

    Holy Wow, Paul!!! Thanks extra much for doing this, totally appreciated–TOTALLY! As usual, your work is applaud-worthy! I have to admit that I’m pleasantly surprised by this mix. I was prepared for a choppy edit of the LP version, but an actual club mix with some post-prod and thought behind it blew my mind. This is simply another fine, fine example of a record company dropping the ball when it came to choosing singles for potential hits. Of course hindsight is always 20/20, but I have little doubt that this as a lead single and “Reach For Me” as a follow up would have given Anne Murray the pop crossover she was intending to achieve with Something To Talk About. This track especially would have sounded so good on the radio in 85/86. But as I always say, with much regret, in these instances…”Nobody asked me!” Again Paul, thank you. (PS…If you’ve never heard Anne’s track “Tonight” from her Harmony album check it out. It was prime for the clubs in ’87.)

    You’re very welcome dana thanks for requesting this one. I had put it back on the shelf after I bought it hoping to post it someday you brought it back to my attention. Now this one and the previously posted “Who’s Leaving Who” are both represented. Have great weekend 🙂

    Dana: You’re the only person I’ve ever heard mention “Reach For Me,” which is also my favorite track from the excellent “Something to Talk About” album. Congratulations on your excellent taste! You’re right: It should have been a single, not the b-side to the inferior “Who’s Leaving Who.”

    Using Audacity, I re-edited “Reach For Me” to feature a more rhythmic, robust beginning (which I stole from the instrumental break in the bridge). It gives the song a vibe that’s reminiscent of “Taking It All Too Hard” by Genesis.

    A fave of mine although i don’t recall hearing it for a while.

    Thanks Paul 🙂

    I wonder if the writer is the same CF Turner of Bachman Turner Overdrive fame?

    It’s a remake of the ’74 BTO song, yes.
