BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1980
Re-Rip Newly Remastered!
Originally I posted this one on July 6, 2011. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!
“Fame” is a pop song, written by Michael Gore (music) and Dean Pitchford (lyrics) that was released in 1980, and achieved chart success as the theme song to the Fame film and TV series. The song was performed by Irene Cara, who played the role of Coco Hernandez in the original movie. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1980, and the Golden Globe Award for the same.
“Fame” rose to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1980. It also reached number one on the Billboard dance chart for one week. The song was not released in the United Kingdom until 1982, so it would coincide with the UK premiere of the Fame television series. It hit number one in the UK Singles Chart for three weeks.
This rare 12″ contains a special mix by Disconet remixer Ed Smith and is exclusive to this release.
