BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
“Funkytown” is a 1980 disco hit song originally recorded by the disco band Lipps Inc. In 1986, it was covered by Australian band Pseudo Echo, who gave the song a different sound, less of early eighties’ electronica and more of later eighties’ rock, including a guitar solo in the middle. Pseudo Echo’s version spent seven weeks at No. 1 in Australia, (Lipps Inc.’s was at No. 1 for only two weeks in Australia), and was also a No. 6 US hit in July of the following year and in August a No. 1 hit in Canada.
All four mixes are exclusive to this promo-only 12″ with mixes by, by Steve “Silk” Hurley and Freddy Bastone.
