Dan Hartman – I Can Dream About You (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“I Can Dream About You” is a song performed by American singer Dan Hartman for the soundtrack album of the film Streets of Fire. Released in 1984 as a single from the soundtrack, and included on Hartman’s album I Can Dream About You, it reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song first appeared in Streets of Fire, where it was performed by the fictional group The Sorels. The real voice behind the version used in the film was Winston Ford, but Hartman’s version was the one used on the soundtrack album and released as a single. In a Songfacts interview with the film’s musical director, Kenny Vance, he recalled “The same guy that sings lead on that and “Countdown to Love,” a song that I wrote for the film, was a guy working at a Radio Shack (Winston Ford), and I think when you look at the film and The Sorels are singing it live in the movie, that was the version that was supposed to come out, and I recorded that version. But then when Dan Hartman heard it, I don’t know what happened next, but I know that he took that guy’s voice off and he put his own on, and he had a hit with it. Hollywood is a very slippery place.”

Originally, producer Jimmy Iovine had asked Hartman to write a song for a film he was working on. Hartman was told that the song was going to be sung by four black guys in a concert situation within the film, and Hartman ended up thinking about a demo he made of “I Can Dream About You.” Hartman then went through some legal maneuvering to get the benefit of his breakthrough. The use of the song in the film being performed by actors did not feature Hartman on vocals but a studio singer. After some contract negotiating, Hartman insisted he sing the song on the soundtrack, and that his version be released if a single were to be issued from the soundtrack album. Additionally, any music video had to feature his own voice using the song. These clauses helped Hartman become an “overnight sensation.” Both Hartman and Iovine worked on his 1984, same-titled solo album I Can Dream About You, following the song’s use in the film. The album would spawn two other Top 40 charting singles on the US Billboard Hot 100 – “We Are the Young” and “Second Nature”.

Ollie & Jerry – Electric Boogaloo (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 23rd June 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“Electric Boogaloo” is a electro-pop song by American music duo Ollie & Jerry. Released in late 1984 as the lead single from the soundtrack to the film Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, the song reached number 45 on the Billboard R&B chart.

Detroit natives and prolific session musicians Ollie E. Brown and Jerry Knight first collaborated as the duo Ollie & Jerry on the soundtrack to the 1984 breakdancing-themed film Breakin’. The first track of that album, “Breakin’… There’s No Stopping Us”, was released as a single and reached number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1984.

Following the success of this record, Ollie & Jerry were asked to contribute music for the Breakin’ sequel, Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo. The term “electric boogaloo” refers to a dance style of the same name. The duo recorded the track “Electric Boogaloo”, which was released as a single.

Although the “Electric Boogaloo” single was less successful than its predecessor (not charting on Billboard”s Top 40), the Breakin’ 2 soundtrack itself did reach number 25 on the Billboard R&B Albums chart, and number 52 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

While Nolan Thomas (Marko Kalfa) did appear in the music video and sang all of the other tracks on the Yo!

He was discovered by dance music producers Mark Liggett and Chris Barbosa of Shannon (“Let the Music Play”) fame when he was still in high school. The original 12-inch single was initially released by Emergency Records. The now famous music video was conceived by the Manager/Director/Producer team of Stu Sleppin & Bob Teeman.
