    You always somehow manage to bring on the chills of excitement Paul!! Wow, I do remember this record in a way. Have definitely heard of it, but I can’t say I’ve heard it. Yes, I don’t understand it myself, but I am thoroughly intrigued. I love when you make me remember something I almost forgot about. This is going to be great. I can just tell.

    THAT’S IT!!! Oh my goodness Paul!! I do know this one! Well, actually the B-side, “Barbarella” which I used to hear all the time on a New Wave radio station out of Philadelphia back in the day. Oh wow, the memories rushed back. Even to this day, I still sing the chorus of this track, but had forgotten who sang it in the first place. Thank you Paul for this memory release. You are so good in what you do. I am so excited. Gosh, I love this New Wave stuff, with those great snake-y, slithering bass lines. Dance music at its finest and alternative.

    You’re the best!!!
