    Paul, I think I get a little more excited over your postings that are new to me. I love how you lead me to uncharted territory. If you’re passionate about a song/remix, I’m sure I will love it too. I have so much trust in your tastes. Plus, it’s a Jellybean remix to add to one’s collection. You really do the best to make one discover or re-discover a little known single and for that, I’m grateful.

    I have a history with this song being a young man going to the clubs looking for love as we all did 🙂 I remember fondly loving this song so much. It’s a fun track along the lines of Alisha and Regina. Enjoy! 🙂

    So great to have a personal story with the song you post, Paul. And, if it’s along the lines of Alisha and Regina, I’m already in Heaven.

    Many thanks Paul,
    also for me this song is new and it is a Jellybean’s remix.☺

    Hoping for Elisa Fiorillo “who found who” too.
    Keep up your good work!!!

    I will see what I can do BE.D12”. Hope that you like this one 🙂

    Another song I discover right now. Like yesterday with Regina, I’m loving the song immediately. You’re right, it sounds like Regina or Alisha. And what to say about the remix, it sounds great like almost every remix from Mister Jellybean. Thank you so much Paul. Your posts of this week are especially wonderful to me.

    That’s cool Daniel I have scored two in a row that you like 🙂

    Hey Paul, hope all is well. Thanks for posting Ana still a favorite of mine all these years. Still can’t believe at such a young age (14)she had that powerhouse voice and should have been bigger in the veins of Tiffany and Debbie Gibson who produced a song on Ana’s second album Body Language (1989). Wondering if you have and can post her other 12 inch Singles THE BOY NEXT DOOR or BEFORE I JUMP if you have them. Also if have anything by CANDI or CANDI AND THE BACKBEAT. Thanks Paul for bringing back great memories.
