    Now this is way cool, Paul!! I love how you definitely flesh-out releases by artists I only know maybe one of their songs. I’m really interested in hearing this re-make of a rock song I enjoy very much.

    Many Thanks!

    Jeff

    You’re welcome Jeff it’s a prett good remake considering they turned it into a semi rock synthpop track. Hope you and Karen are doing ok in the blizzard 🙂

    Thank you!! These mixes are so hard to find. I stumbled across this 12″ back when it was first released, bought it for maybe $1, got home and found out it was warped so bad it couldn’t be played. Seriously, it looks like someone attacked it with a curling iron! I’ve never seen a copy of it since, nor have I ever found it online to download or purchase.

    That’s a cool post Paul, I only remember their “Heartache” single in 1986, and Wham.
    Shirlie Holliman married Spandau Ballet’s Bass player and “The Krays” Actor Martin Kemp.
    In 2000 the Duo recorded backing vocals on Geri Halliwell hit Bag It Up (UK number one).
    Pepsi & Shirlie performed at the Here and Now 10th Anniversary tour 2011.

    Who’s that Girl? Might it be Neneh Cherrie’s sister there, dancing next to one of Madonna’s from 1987?
    I’m sorry, could not resist – I looked them up, because of the blanc sleeve, saw a video..
    Don’t remember this one song from those days, but I sure do remember those fashions 🙂
    (Having said that – I am so glad there weren’t cellphones back then to record my own hairstyles and ‘unique’ sense of dressing..)
    Weird track though, this one. It is like they jumped from Wham-pop into some sort of stadiumrock-pool. Nice one to mess with the instrumental, to make it disco 🙂

    Dirk I think we are all glad there were no cell phones back then lol 🙂

    Oh how I repeat myself Paul: You are such a source for “new music” that I crave. I love these new finds that you introduce to us. You know I’m a nostalgic person, and I keep thinking back to the early and mid-1980’s when radio and the clubs were so exciting to me. I went from a staunch Disco admirer, to dance music with an edge. You really reflect my sensibilities so well. I can’t imagine my musical life without you now. So many favorites you resurrect for us in such stellar quality. But it’s the new ones and the obscure ones that I really feel compelled to listen to. It is euphoria every time I come here. I can’t wait to “hear” what’s next on your playlist.

    You remind me of KROQ out of L.A. and WLIR out of Long Island, New York. Now, I never could get these radio stations, but their influence is/was immense. Speaking of WLIR, there is a film coming out about them, called, I believe: “WLIR,’Dare To Be Different'” that will be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival. I can’t wait to see it one day. They were pioneers. You, dear Paul, are a pioneer yourself and I laud your talents and influence in Cyberspace. AND!!! You are just the nicest person. Thanks for being here and doing what you do so much for all of us. The appreciation and gratitude will never cease.

    Humbly,

    Jeff

  13. LeeUK Says:

    Wow never knew these mixes existed – what a fantastic treat!! It’s hard enough to track down the UK remixes too (any chance you have these too)? Loved this single when it was released, but remember it didn’t do very well – think the UK version was a little more ‘Rock’
