Chaka Khan I Feel For You (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 6th May 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

princehype

“I Feel for You” is a song written by Prince that originally appeared on his 1979 self-titled album, one of two songs on that album (along with “I Wanna Be Your Lover”) written as demos for Patrice Rushen, though neither appeared on any Rushen album. The most successful and well known version was recorded by female R&B singer Chaka Khan, appearing on her 1984 album, I Feel for You. Prince, as songwriter, won the 1985 Grammy Award for Best R&B Song.

Khan’s version featured an all-star supporting cast, with rapping from Melle Mel Mel of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, guitar, drum programming, bass guitar, keyboards and arrangement by Reggie Griffin, bass synthesizer and programming by The System’s David Frank and chromatic harmonica playing by Stevie Wonder. The song also uses vocal samples from Wonder’s “Fingertips”. The repetition of Khan’s name by Melle Mel at the beginning of the song was originally a mistake made by producer Arif Mardin ), who then decided to keep it.

This version of the song became a million-selling smash in the U.S. and UK, and it helped to relaunch Khan’s career. The song hit No. 1 on the Cash Box singles chart and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in November-December 1984. The song remained on the Billboard Hot 100 for 26 weeks and became one of Billboard’s five biggest pop songs of the year for 1985. The single reached No. 1 on both the U.S. dance and R&B charts in late 1984, remaining atop both for three weeks each. In addition, the song also reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart. While touring with Prince in 1998 in support of her collaborative album, Come 2 My House, Khan and Prince performed “I Feel for You” as a duet.

The Pointer Sisters recorded the song in 1982, two years before Khan’s version was a hit, on their album So Excited!.

Rebbie Jackson recorded it for her 1984 debut album Centipede.

David Bowie – Underground (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th January 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“Underground” is a song from the soundtrack of the film Labyrinth, performed by David Bowie.

The track was something of an experiment for Bowie, dabbling in gospel music to a small extent, helped by a large chorus of backing vocalists and blues guitarist Albert Collins, but retaining use of synthesizers. The song also featured backing vocals by Cissy Houston, Chaka Khan, Luther Vandross and others.

The single reached #21 in the UK Singles Chart. In the US the single reached #22 on the Billboard dance chart.

David Bowie – Magic Dance (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 14th January 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“Magic Dance” is one of the featured songs performed by David Bowie in the 1986 Jim Henson movie, Labyrinth. It is also credited as “Dance Magic” in some instances.

This song is a dance number which momentarily takes the focus away from Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) to observe the goings on in the castle at the centre of the labyrinth. Jareth, played by Bowie, amuses himself by singing to Toby. The lyric ‘What kind of magic spell to use?’ possibly refers to the search for a spell that will cheer up a crying Toby. The answer they discover is ‘Magic Dance’.

The song then begins with a simple dance beat, while a series of questions and answers between Jareth and the goblins presented in call-response form are layered over. Seeing that the goblins are still confused, Jareth provides further explanation in the form of an ’80s dance/rock sequence. The goblins all sing along with Jareth, recounting multiple spells, and ultimately choosing a form of “magic dance”.

The song lyrics makes reference to the 1947 movie The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer starring Cary Grant: “Hey, You remind me of the Man / Babe, What Man / Babe, The Man / Babe with the Power….”.

The song appears in different forms in the film and on the soundtrack. Both versions use the same basic song and recordings made in the studio, but vocal tracks for the film and soundtrack were recorded apart from each other. In addition, the song is shortened in the film, fading out mid-way through.

The song also appears in a reprise medley with “Underground” at the end of the film.

The single wasn’t available in all markets around the world. The main single, only released on 12″ was released in the US, Spanish and Italian markets, among others. The single was never released commercially in the UK.
