80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Beastie Boys – She’s On It (Soundtrack From The Video) (Europe 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th June 2017

BURNING HE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“She’s on It” is a song by American hip-hop group the Beastie Boys. The group’s third single, it was released on the soundtrack to the 1985 film Krush Groove.

Despite failing to attract commercial success at the time of its release in 1985, a re-release in 1987 was much more successful, becoming a top 10 hit on the UK Singles Chart, and reaching the top 50 in two other European countries.

The song’s video was one of the band’s first music videos. The boys are trying to win the heart of a beautiful woman on the beach, but their efforts are foiled by stampeding female fans. Not even the assistance of a mentor (played by producer Rick Rubin) can help them. Their attempts range from using Spanish Fly to flying over her in a helicopter and a net, and even their attempt to blow her up fails.

It is not listed on the sleeve or labels however “She’s On It” is a longer mix than the 3:32 album version.

Jan Hammer – Miami Vice Theme (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 22nd May 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“Miami Vice Theme” was created and performed by Jan Hammer as the theme to the television series Miami Vice. It was first presented as part of the television broadcast of the show in September 1984 and released as a single in 1985, peaking at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the last instrumental to top the Hot 100 until 2013, when “Harlem Shake” by Baauer reached number one. It also peaked at number 5 in the UK, and number 4 in Canada. In 1986, it won Grammy Awards for “Best Instrumental Composition” and “Best Pop Instrumental Performance.” This song, along with Glenn Frey’s number-two hit “You Belong to the City”, put the Miami Vice soundtrack on the top of the US album chart for 11 weeks in 1985, making it the most successful TV soundtrack of all time until 2006 when Disney Channel’s High School Musical beat its record.

It’s a mystery the US 12″ credits François Kevorkian and Ron St. Germain as remixer while the UK 12″ credits Louil Silas Jr.. The “Extended Remix” seems to be the same mix that appears on the UK release. So who actually remixed the track?

Originally posted May 4th, 2011

“I Wanna Be A Cowboy” is a 1985 single by British duo Boys Don’t Cry. A novelty song with deadpan humour and kitschy references, the song has been described as the perfect musical realization of a spaghetti western movie. It hit #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #13 on the Hot Dance Music/Maxi Singles Sales chart in 1986-1987, and was R&R #8. “I Wanna Be A Cowboy” was also a top 10 hit in Australia and South Africa. The video featured a cameo appearance by Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead.
