Boys Club – I Remember Holding You (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 10th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“I Remember Holding You” is a hit single by American Pop duo Boys Club, which peaked at #8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1989. The duo consisted of Gene Hunt and Joe Pasquale from Minneapolis, Minnesota. In radio interviews conducted during the height of their success both Hunt and Pasquale stated that one of their primary musical influences was George Michael, and more specifically, the work Michael did during the Wham! years. “The way he arranged songs and melodies was quite unique and we tried to emulate that with our own music,” Hunt was quoted as saying during one of those early interviews.

Boys Club was the first group to appear on the New Mickey Mouse Club as a musical guest during the first episode.

Hunt (born Eugene Wolfgramm) was previously a member of the family group The Jets. His youngest brothers and sisters are now members of a hard rock group, Against the Season.

In 1990, Hunt briefly reunited with The Jets to record four new tracks for The Best of The Jets (1990). He was featured on the cover and inside album sleeve, and he appeared in the “Special Kinda Love” music video.
