    You are the Super Hero of Sound Recordings, dear Paul!! I love when you plunge deep within your collection for some splendid 80’s dance mix!! And, a dance mix by Belouis Some is such a welcome one. I love his catalog of releases. He’s also quite handsome too. Many thanks for this addition to your Burning The Ground Discography. I swoon over what you include here. The surprises, the faves, the hard-to-find and the ones that you school us in. You are un-FREAKING-believable, Paul. I can’t sing your praises enough!!

    I’m freaking out I’ve been hoping for the one for years. Thanks Paul, your taste in music and your record collection is amazing.

    I have never been sure of how to pronounce this bands name. I always called them Bel-wah Sohm. Is that correct with the French pronunciations?


  9. Martijn Says:

    Another top track from 1985, Especially the extended version is one of my favorites of the 80s, albeit that this favorite list is in itself quite long. Thx for yet another very good upload!

    If DJ PaulT doesn’t mind, I’d like to share this with the site.

    There is a 2017 remix online of Nick Kershaw’s Wouldn’t It Be Good:

    Lotus & Jerome feat. Nik Kershaw – Wouldn’t It Be Good (Extended Mix)

    I’ve totally forgotten about this. My favorite from him is Let It Be Wth You. Thanks for bringing back this amazing gem!
