BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1978
R E Q U E S T
“Chase” is an electronic instrumental by Italian synth-pioneer Giorgio Moroder from the Academy Award-winning soundtrack and film Midnight Express (1978). In January 1979 “Chase” peaked at #33 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Although originally branded as disco, the song is considered to be, along with Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”, a pioneer of the HI-NRG genre that came to prominence in the early 1980s. For the 12″ single the song was extended to an epic thirteen minutes and reached #31 on the US Dance Charts.The music was arranged by Giorgio Moroder with Harold Faltermeyer.
This 12″ is a special one-sided single.
