It’s not something you consider of perfect taste or anything, and someone records them and you think that’s fantastic. It’s a really exciting and thrilling thing.”

Thank you Olivia for all of the Love & Light you have shared with me and so many others over the years. Get well soon.

Pet Shop Boys and Dusty Springfield – What Have I Done To Deserve This? (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 6th April 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“What Have I Done to Deserve This?” is a song by English synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys, featuring singer Dusty Springfield.

When released as a single in late 1987, it peaked at number 2 in the UK and also at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the fourth top ten hit for Pet Shop Boys as well as the biggest hit of Springfield’s career in the US. It was kept from the top spot by “Seasons Change” by Expose and “Father Figure” by their fellow British singer George Michael on that chart. The single made it to number 1 on the Irish singles chart, where it was Pet Shop Boys’ second number 1 hit in the space of just six weeks.

The song’s success helped revive Springfield’s career and led to a resurgence of interest in her music. Pet Shop Boys and Dusty Springfield performed the song for the 1988 BRIT Awards. Following the duet the Pet Shop Boys wrote and produced the singles “Nothing Has Been Proved” and “In Private” for Springfield, both included on her 1990 album Reputation.

The music video was filmed in a music hall, featuring a female chorus line and male members of the pit orchestra. It made significant use of the theater drapes and stage curtains for dramatic effect. Like all of the singles taken from the Actually album, the song also appears on the film It Couldn’t Happen Here, where it is briefly played in instrumental form, without vocals.

In North America the 12″ single included alternate Shep Pettibone remixes with “Rent” and “I Want A Dog” as the b-side tracks.

Erasure – A Little Respect (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 6th March 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“A Little Respect” is a song written and recorded by British synthpop duo Erasure, released in September 1988 as their tenth single. It was issued as the third European (and second American) single from their album The Innocents.

Known as one of their signature songs, “A Little Respect” continued Erasure’s success on the UK Singles Chart, where it hit number four to become the band’s fifth Top 10 single. It was also Erasure’s second consecutive Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, where it climbed to number 14, and hit number two on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Songs chart. In the U.K. Mark Saunders and Phil Legg provided the remixes, for the U.S. the remixes were made by Justin Strauss.

Written by Erasure members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, the heavily synthesized instrumentation is accentuated by acoustic guitar and Bell’s use of falsetto in the chorus. The lyrics are a plea to a lover to show compassion and respect.
