    Saw him in Milwaukee few weeks ago for his Stripped Down Tour was a great show always good when you see him live! He took Q&A from the crowd after the show never seen that before after a concert.

    A bit faster than the original, though that did well as a single in Australia. The whole album “Chemistry” by Mondo Rock is a good one.

  10. Jeff Says:

    Ah, the remix of the Top 40 pop record!! Paul, if it weren’t for you, these classics would certainly be ignored and/or lost. I love these Rick Springfield dance versions because of their fleshed-out energy and all the bells and whistles a remixer would include on them. Thanks most highly for putting these on your site. I so cherish the rare remix that has escaped memory for way too long!!

    Best Regards,
