DISCO FRIDAY!

“Sky High” is the name of a 1975 single by British pop music group, Jigsaw. The song, the main title theme to the film entitled The Man from Hong Kong, was a world-wide hit in the latter part of 1975, reaching #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on the Adult Contemporary chart in the United States. It was also a Top 10 single in the UK Singles Chart. The 1975 Australian single was released under the name “British Jigsaw” because there was an established and popular local band called “Jigsaw”.

Two years later the song gained more striking commercial success in Japan, peaking at the #2 on the Oricon singles chart and selling approximately 570,000 copies. In July 1986 Splash Records released a Limited Edition UK 12″ featurng a re-mix by Les “Mixdoctor” Adams of DMC. In 1987 Pete Hammond of PWL remixed the track for ZYX Records which was a minor dance hit in the US.
