“Ruthless People” is the theme song for the 1986 black comedy, starring Danny DeVito, Bette Midler, Judge Reinhold and Helen Slater. It also features Bill Pullman as a supporting role in his film debut.

The song was co-written by Mick Jagger, Daryl Hall and Eurythmics co-member Dave Stewart and performed by Jagger. Assuming the song would be a hit, “Weird Al” Yankovic requested (and received) permission from Jagger to record a parody version, “Toothless People”, for his upcoming Polka Party! album. When Jagger’s song failed to crack the Top 40, Yankovic considered not recording his version; because Jagger had “authorized” the parody, however, he decided failing to produce it would be an insult to the artist and recorded it.

The movie version features different lyrics from the single version.

David Bowie/Mick Jagger – Dancing In The Street (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 10th October 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

DONATION RECEIVED, REQUEST FILLED!

“Dancing in the Street” is a 1964 song first recorded by Martha and the Vandellas and is one of Motown’s signature songs.

In 1985 the song was recorded by Mick Jagger and David Bowie as a duo, as part of the Live Aid charity movement. The original plan was to perform a track together live, with Bowie performing at Wembley Stadium and Jagger at John F. Kennedy Stadium, until it was realized that the satellite link-up would cause a half-second delay that would make this impossible unless either Bowie or Jagger mimed their contribution, something neither artist was willing to do. In 1968 Jagger and Keith Richards had already “borrowed” a line from the song in “Street Fighting Man” – “Cause summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy.”

In June 1985, Bowie was recording his contributions to the Absolute Beginners soundtrack at Abbey Road Studios, and so Jagger arranged to fly in to record the track there. A rough mix of the track was completed in just four hours, at which point the pair went straight out to London Docklands to film a video with director David Mallet. Thirteen hours after the start of recording, this also was completed. Jagger arranged for some minor musical overdubs with Steve Thompson and Michael Barbiero in New York.

The video was shown twice at the Live Aid event. Soon afterwards the track was issued as a single, with all profits going to the charity. “Dancing in the Street” topped the UK charts for four weeks, and reached number seven in the United States. Bowie and Jagger would perform the song once more, at the Prince’s Trust Concert on June 20, 1986. The song has been featured since on several Bowie compilations.

It was also shown in movie theaters before showings of Ruthless People, for which Jagger had recorded the theme song. It was the first instance in which a promotional clip was used outside of MTV or broadcast television.

The Rolling Stones – Too Much Blood (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd October 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

“Too Much Blood” is a single released only in the United States by The Rolling Stones taken from their 1983 album Undercover.

Credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, “Too Much Blood” is largely a Jagger composition. The song is a reflection of the many influences the Stones would have during their career in the mid-1980s. Jagger said at the time of its release, “I had made out a very honest burden of mind before everyone had arrived one night. It was just Charlie [Watts] and Bill [Wyman]. And one of our roadies called Jim Barber, he was playing guitar on it too. And I just started playing this riff I had, with this middle part, I didn’t have any words to it and then I just suddenly started rapping out these words which are the ones you hear.” (“Mick asked me if I could do an ‘Andy Summers’ on the track” – Jim Barber).

The song itself deals with the growing depictions of violence in the media at the time and the case of Issei Sagawa, with Jagger saying, “Well there was this scandalous, murderous story in France – it was a true story – about this Japanese guy who murdered this girl and it sort of captured the imagination of the French public, and the Japanese. The Russians wanted to make a movie out of it. So that was the first bit and then I started becoming more light-hearted about it, movies and all. …it came out as a sort of anti-gratuitous cinema of violence. And it’s a kind of anti-violent thing.”

“Did you ever see “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre”? Horrible, wasn’t it. You know, people ask me “is it really true where you live in Texas, is that really true what they do around there, people?” I say, “yea, every time I drive through the crossroads I get scared, there’s a bloke running round with a fucking chain saw. Oh! Oh! oh No, he’s gonna cut off, Oh no. Don’t saw off me leg, don’t saw off me arm.”

Jagger uses a half-hearted rap delivery for some lines, saying at the time, “I’m not a great rapper… It’s just made up on the spot as well. It’s completely extemporized, as well, most of it. A couple words I cleaned up. I don’t mean clean up, just made better sounds. That was just rap off the top of my head. I didn’t write it down, even.”

Recording took place at Paris’ Pathé Marconi Studios and New York City’s Hit Factory between October and November 1982. With Jagger on lead vocals, he also performs electric guitars with Barber and Richards. Horns are provided by Chops and percussion by Sly Dunbar.

A dance version of “Too Much Blood,” remixed by Arthur Baker, was released as a twelve-inch single in December 1984. A music video, directed by Julien Temple, was produced in support showing the band performing the song as well as Richards and guitarist Ron Wood chasing Jagger with chainsaws. The trio also appear, without chainsaws but still in character, on the record sleeve for the single. The video opens with an excerpt from the first movement of the String Quartet Number 3 by Béla Bartók. “Too Much Blood” has never been performed live by the Stones and appears on no compilation albums.

In the US the singles peaked at #44 on the Billboard Dance Chart and #38 on the Mainstream Rock Chart.

Jacksons – State Of Shock (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 24th October 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“State of Shock” is a 1984 hit single by The Jacksons featuring frontman Michael Jackson and Mick Jagger. It was written by Jackson and guitarist Randy Hansen. “State of Shock” charted number 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 14 on the UK Singles Chart. The track was originally to be sung with Freddie Mercury as a duet with Jackson, and was later slated for the Thriller album; however, due to differing time schedules, Jackson ended up recording it with his brothers and Jagger.

“State of Shock” was the biggest hit from The Jacksons’ Victory album, reaching number 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 14 on the UK SinglesChart. The song was originally recorded with Freddie Mercury, as Jackson and Mercury had been working on several tracks at that time (1981–83), e.g. the unreleased title track “Victory” for the eponymous album and “There Must Be More to Life Than This” from Mr. Bad Guy. The final version featured lead vocals by Michael Jackson and Mick Jagger. “State of Shock” was the last top ten hit for The Jacksons, as well as their last single to be certified gold. The song was later revised by Jagger when he performed it with Tina Turner during their 1985 performance at Live Aid.
