Men At Work – Everything I Need (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 30th June 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi”

Originally posted February 24, 2011

“Everything I Need” was a single released in 1985 by the Australian group Men at Work. The song was written by Men at Work singer/guitarist Colin Hay and the recording was produced by Hay with keyboardist Greg Ham. The song appeared on the group’s album Two Hearts.

The tune has a bouncy, midtempo pop/rock feel, and is marked by a loud, thwacking drum rhythm and a prominent slide guitar solo.

“Everything I Need” was not a major hit. It peaked at #47 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was in fact to be the last Men at Work single to make the U.S. charts.

A. Front

“Let’s Dance” is the title song from English singer-songwriter David Bowie’s 1983 album of the same name. It was also released as the first single from that album in 1983, and went on to become one of his biggest-selling tracks. Nile Rodgers founder of the funk band Chic produced the single. Stevie Ray Vaughan played the guitar solo at the end of the song.

The single was one of Bowie’s fastest selling to date, entering the UK Singles Chart at number five on its first week of release, staying at the top of the charts for three weeks. Soon afterwards, the single topped the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Bowie’s second and last single to reach number 1 in the U.S. In Oceania, it narrowly missed topping the Australian charts, peaking at number two, but peaked at number one for 4 consecutive weeks in New Zealand.

The b-side “Cat People (Putting Out Fire) is a re-recording of the 1981 track recorded for inclusion on the Let’s Dance album.

Bryan Adams – Run To You (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th January 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

R E Q U E S T

“Run to You” is a rock song written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance for Adams’ fourth studio album, Reckless. It was the first single released from the album and is still one of Adams’s most recognizable and popular songs. The song topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song has appeared on all of Adams’ compilation albums. The single was certified Gold in Canada in 1985.

“Run to You” was released in October 1984 and became one of the most successful songs from Reckless on the American rock charts and arguably one of Adams most recognizable and popular songs. “Run to You” was released worldwide on October 18, 1984. The song reached the top ten on the Mainstream Rock Tracks and was Adams first number one hit on the Mainstream Rock Tracks and number six on the Billboard Hot 100. “Run to You” reached the top twenty on the Canadian singles chart and remained there for seven weeks. “Run to You” reached the highest Canadian chart positions Adams had attained at the time of release and became his second top twenty single in Canada. “Run to You” was released the following month in Ireland and peaked at number 8 and reached number eleven on the UK Singles Chart. It was his second single to chart in Europe.

Stewart Mason from Allmusic said “Run to You” was the first of the album’s six Top 30 hits, and in retrospect, “one of the weakest of the lot. Although the song has a thundering chorus, the kind that sounds truly excellent blasting through FM speakers, there is quite literally not much else to the song: of the song’s nearly four-minute length, over half of the song is devoted to repeats of the chorus and an unimaginative instrumental breakdown that leads into a seemingly endless vamp on the chorus to fade.” The long instrumental is indicative of the theme of the music video where the protagonist is serenading his guitar as the object of his affection.

The music video was shot in London, England and later Los Angeles.[9] Directed by Steve Barron, it was nominated for the 1985 MTV Video Music Awards in five different categories: Best Direction, Best Special Effects, Best Art Direction, Best Editing and Best Cinematography. While the song didn’t win any of the awards, it has received more MTV Video Music Award nominations than any other of Adams’ songs. The English actress Lysette Anthony appears in the video.

Bruce Springsteen – Cover Me (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 6th December 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“Cover Me” is an 1984 song, written and performed by American rock singer Bruce Springsteen. It was the second single released from his massively successful album Born in the U.S.A.

“Cover Me” was one of the first songs recorded for the lengthy set of sessions that produced the album, and in fact was recorded as a demo, as the song was to be given to disco queen Donna Summer. However, Springsteen’s manager Jon Landau heard the result and decided the combination of Springsteen’s rock impulse, fierce guitar solo, and a strong dance beat had hit potential, and so kept the song for the upcoming Springsteen album, not even bothering to re-record it. Donna Summer was given “Protection” instead. Springsteen even recorded a duet with Summer, but it was never released. Springsteen was still unsure about “Cover Me”, and Landau had to constantly argue to keep it included on the album.

The song peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts[1] in late summer 1984. It was the second of a record-tying seven Top 10 hit singles to be released from Born in the U.S.A.

No music video was made for the song.

Continuing the club play goal started with “Dancing in the Dark”, Arthur Baker created the 12-inch “Undercover Mix” of “Cover Me”. This was a large-scale transformation: a new bass line was cut, an unused backing vocal by industry legend Jocelyn Brown was restored, and reggae and dub elements were introduced. It was released on October 15, 1984.

As with the previous effort, the result displeased some of Springsteen’s more strait-laced fans, but did gain actual club play: the remix went to number 11 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.
