Posted by DjPaulT on 8th June 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“Let’s Hear It for the Boy” is the second number-one song for both Deniece Williams and the soundtrack to the feature film, Footloose. It climbed to number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1984, as well as number one on the dance and R&B charts, and peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song, was certified platinum in the US, gold in Canada and silver in the UK by the RIAA, Music Canada and the British Phonographic Industry respectively.

SPECIAL NOTE: This 12″ promo contains the “Dance Remix Edit” mixed by John “Jellybean” Benitez. This particular edit is exclusive to the US 12″ promo only. The standard 12″ single contains the “Instrumental” as the b-side which I have added as a bonus track.
