    As a fan of Hi-NRG dance music, I’m really pumped to hear this one Paul. I love dance remakes of pop records, and sometimes I think they even surpass the originals. You set the standard for introducing great records to us Paul. I love the revival of “lost classics” especially when they’re new to me. I like the subtitle to this one, the Sorcery Mix, especially for this time of year. You come up with great records that aren’t the same ole same ole. I can’t wait to check this one out Paul.

    You’re the best!!!

    aah the sorcery of it all. This production is pretty good Brian is not the best vocalist but he had fun with it. I really do hope that you like this one Jeff 🙂

    Also Olivia’s remake “You Have To Believe” with Dave Aude is currently racing up the Billboard dance charts #6 this week. Olivia will also be guest judge on “Dancing With The Stars” tonight.


    Jeff Reply:

    Yes I know. This is such great news Paul. It’s always great to have Olivia back in the clubs!!!

    Thanks for this one and for archiving part of pop culture that might otherwise have gone unnoticed.


  5. Joey Says:

    Interesting, this is definitely an obscure one. Reminds me Of Erasure, Actually they could do this one really well.
