Posted by DjPaulT on 19th August 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“I Can’t Wait” is a 1986 song by American singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks. It was the second single released off of her third studio album Rock a Little. The song peaked inside the US top 20 at #16 for two weeks and is one of only four of Nicks’ singles to enter the US Dance charts peaking inside the top 30. It also charted in the UK, reaching #54 in the early months of 1986, her first single to chart there since 1981’s “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”. The song also featured on the charts at the same time as another song of the same title by Nu Shooz, something of a rare incidence.

This UK 12″ contains an extended version of the album track “Rock A Little” although it is not listed as such on the sleeve or record label. This version only appears on European issues of the 12″ single.

Maria Vidal – Body Rock (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th December 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

Maria Vidal (born August 1, 1957) is an American singer, who had one minor hit single with the song, “Body Rock” (#48 on the Hot 100) (the theme song to the film Body Rock) in 1984; it also reached #8 on the US dance charts, and #11 in the UK. The track was produced by Phil Ramone and remixed by John “Jellybean Benitez.

Vidal was originally a member of the band, Desmond Child & Rouge, but went solo with a self-titled debut album released in 1987.

Vidal contributed backup vocals to the The Smithereens’ 1984 single “A Girl Like You”. She also appeared in the 1985 Jim Carrey film, Once Bitten, as a member of a high school band and contributed two songs to the soundtrack.

Maria sang backing vocals for Lindsay Buckingham and company, as well as various works with KISS. Buckingham co-wrote “Life on the Train”, which is on her 1987 LP. Vidal also wrote the 1989 Belinda Carlisle hit “Summer Rain”.

Vidal is married to music producer and songwriter Rick Nowels.
