Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – So In Love (Special American Dance Mix) (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 13th February 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

BTG Week Of LOVE!

“So in Love” is a song by the band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, released in 1985 as the first single from the album Crush. The artwork, designed by XL Design, and the promo video were both influenced by the Mexican Day of the Dead festival.

Critic Dave Thompson in AllMusic praised “So in Love” as a “rich and sumptuous number” that is “well in keeping with the group’s signature styling”. Colleague Tom Schulte described the song as being – along with the following year’s “If You Leave” – the “pinnacle” of the band’s musical progression.

Although “So in Love” was the first single from Crush, it was one of the last songs written for the album. It was originally dropped until band member Martin Cooper persuaded Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys to make a demo for the song. Andy McCluskey said it was about the painful end of a relationship. It was their first hit in the United States, after five years of trying to “break” the States.

“So In Love” debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 on August 31, 1985. The song remained on the chart for seventeen weeks, peaking at the #26 position. “So In Love” reached #27 in the U.K..

**This 12″ promo was released in the general issue picture sleeve that shows the B-side as being “Concrete Hands (Extended)”. The labels list the mixes on both sides as “Special American Dance Remix” but track durations are different.

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

REQUEST

“My Heart Goes Bang (Get Me To The Doctor)” is a 1985 song by the British band Dead or Alive. It was the fourth and final single from the band’s second studio album Youthquake. It charted at #23 in the United Kingdom, #12 in Japan, and became a dance hit in the U.S.

The “American ‘WIPE-OUT’ Mix” is about 25 seconds longer than the version that appears on the Japanese 12″ that I posted in 2012 and does not appear on the newly released Sophisticated Boom Box MMXVI because the label was not able to find the master recording. Also of note “Big Daddy Of The Rhythm (Live)” and “My Heart Goes Bang (Get Me To The Doctor) (Instrumental Version)” are new 2016 re-rip transfers.

Eurythmics & Aretha Franklin – Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 9th November 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

a-front

Love did not save the day  and I am heartbroken. We must keep fighting to break that glass ceiling.

“Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves” is a 1985 song recorded as a duet by the British pop duo Eurythmics and American soul/R&B singer Aretha Franklin. It was released as a single by RCA Records in October 1985, and was featured on both Eurythmics’ Be Yourself Tonight and Franklin’s Who’s Zoomin’ Who? albums.

“Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves” is considered to be a modern feminist anthem and was written by Eurythmics’ Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart. They had originally intended to duet with Tina Turner, who was unavailable at the time and so the duo approached Aretha Franklin instead.

The song was highly successful, reaching #9 on the UK Singles Chart and #18 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. It also peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.

The track also features three of Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers; Stan Lynch on drums, Benmont Tench on organ, and Mike Campbell on lead guitar, plus session bassist Nathan East.
