BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
“Boom Boom (Let’s Go Back to My Room)” is the debut single by American singer and model Paul Lekakis.
Originally released in 1987 on ZYX Records, then picked up by Polydor Records for a wider release, the song peaked at #43 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the U.S. and at #60 on the UK Singles Chart in England. It fared better in other parts of the world, where the song spent five weeks at #1 on the ARIA Charts in Australia, from April 13 through May 11 of 1987. It also topped music charts in Japan and South Africa, and peaked at #2 in Canada. The song is noteworthy because it is a well-known 1980s dance club track that nonetheless failed to appear on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart upon its initial release. Subsequent remixes have appeared on that chart, however, as well as some of Lekakis’ other dance recordings. The song was popular in the LGBT community and helped to establish his career, both as a singer and as an actor.
Several remixes were commissioned for the track including the rare UK only Champion Remix by mixmaster Phil Harding of PWL released on Champion Records a London based major long-running soul, dance and house music label.
