David Bowie – Time Will Crawl (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 29th January 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

A. Front

“Time Will Crawl” is the second track on David Bowie’s album Never Let Me Down and was issued as the second single from the album. The single was a minor hit, breaking into the top 10 charts in the US.

The song is generally considered the best song from an otherwise poorly received album, and in 2008 Bowie named the track as one of his favorites of his entire career.

The song was written about the pollution and destruction of the planet by industry (Bowie has cited hearing of the Chernobyl disaster in April 1986 as the genesis of the lyric). In an 1987 interview, Bowie said the song “deals with the idea that someone in one’s own community could be the one responsible for blowing up the world.” Bowie also stated at the time that it was his favorite song from the album, and later put the song on his list of all-time favorites by including a newly remixed version of the song (the “MM Remix”) on his iSelect album.

The b-sdie “Girls” is a non album track written by David Bowie and Erdal Kizilcay. The song was also recorded by Tina Turner for her album Break Every Rule.

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1978

A. Front

“Rock Lobster” is a song written by Fred Schneider and Ricky Wilson, two members of The B-52’s. It was produced in two versions, one by DB Records released in 1978, and a longer version, which was part of the band’s 1979 self-titled debut album, released by Warner Bros. The song became one of their signature tunes and it helped launch the band’s success.

“Rock Lobster” was the band’s first single to appear on Billboard Hot 100, where it reached No. 56. A major hit in Canada, the single went all the way to No. 1 in the RPM national singles chart. Its follow-up was “Private Idaho,” in October 1980, which reached No. 74 in the US. It was well received by critics and was placed at No. 147 on Rolling Stone’s list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

Michael Jackson – You Can’t Win (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 27th June 2014

Side A

 

DISCO FRIDAY!

mjOn June 25, 2009, the world lost Michael Jackson, one of music’s true greats.

Five years after his death, we remember the King of Pop as a pioneer whose work remains a huge part of our cultural consciousness. We miss you Michael!

“You Can’t Win” is an R&B, pop and soul song performed by American recording artist Michael Jackson, who played Scarecrow in the 1978 musical film The Wiz, an urbanized retelling of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The movie featured an entirely African American cast and was based on the 1975 Broadway musical The Wiz.

After the original soundtrack version was recorded, Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones went back into the studio and re-recorded the track. It was the re-recording that was released in January 1979 as the second single from The Wiz: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, following the release of “Ease On Down the Road” in 1978, and was Michael’s first solo chart single on Epic Records. The 7″ version included “You Can’t Win, parts 1 & 2″. The full length version was released on 12”.

The single only charted in the United States, where it reached number 81 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 42 on the R&B singles chart. Since its release, the song has been well received by music critics. The song has been performed by contemporary singers such as Jill Scott and Charles Grigsby.

In 1982, part 2 of the song, in which Michael Jackson repeatedly sings “Can’t Get Outta The Game”, was dusted off, given a couple of vocal overdubs, was renamed “Can’t Get Outta The Rain” and became the B-side of the first single of his landmark album Thriller: “The Girl Is Mine”.
