    You’ve certainly piqued my interest here, Paul. Growing up, I was a huge fan (still am) of “The Facts of Life” television show. I also remember that Miss Fields did a record or two along the way. Even, back four years or so, when I discovered your amazing website, I saw it listed but it was a dead link. It’s so great that you have resurrected this track with your new equipment and your phenomenal skills for ripping vinyl. You are so GOD-LIKE when it comes to extracting sound from vinyl records. Your rips are exquisite. I just melt into pools of ecstasy when I listen to these beautiful rendered sound files. We are fortunate; blessed by what you do. I will always gush when it comes to your talents and your personality, Paul. You do make this world a better place.

    Can’t wait to hear the Michael Jackson tribute as well on this. Such an innocent time for MJ and all of his fans.

    Hey, have a fantastic weekend and thanks for this week’s songs. I can’t wait to hear of what comes next for us.

    Enjoy your weekend, Paul!!

    Thanks Jeff Bill Bottrell who worked with Madonna on Like A Prayer did an amazing job on this 12″. It will have you dancing and singing while remembering the just how special the 80s really were. Kim kinda channels her inner Janet Jackson on this one. Hope you like it.

    Enjoy the weekend 🙂

    Another great song which is totally new to me. I loved the Hi-NRG genre in the eighties. The remix sounds also great. Thank you Paul for the fantastic rips during this week. Have a great weekend.

    Am I tripping, or is this Madonna demo-ing a Stock Aitken n Waterman cooperation?
    Pink, very pink, everything, by the way. Or is it my screen-settings?
