Was (Not Was) – Walk The Dinosaur (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 10th October 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

a-front

“Walk the Dinosaur” is a song by Was (Not Was), released in 1987, from their 1988 album, What Up, Dog?.

The song features a tight, funky sound, punctuated by horns and a cowbell, along with what sounds like cavepeople chanting in the background.

When released in the UK in 1987, the song reached no. 10 on the singles chart, becoming the group’s first UK top 10 hit. The music video featured four scantily clad ‘cavewomen’ dancing to the song while a Flintstones style TV played clips from Daffy Duck and the Dinosaur. Modern people danced to the song in the “Everybody kill the dinosaur” part. The video received heavy rotation on MTV. The song reached no. 7 on the US chart in 1989, two years after its UK success. The song became the band’s biggest hit single in their home country.

According to an interview with co-writer Randy Jacobs, it “was an infectious sing-along with a Flintstonesque video that probably got played on MTV way too much. But even that seemingly good-time anthem had a dark side. The song’s about nuclear Armageddon. It became a dance (anthem) because of the video. They connected it with the girls in the little Pebbles and Bam-Bam outfits. All the sudden it became, like, ‘do the mashed potato’ or ‘the twist.'”

“Walk the Dinosaur” was also featured in the soundtrack of 1989 film The Dream Team.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Dreaming (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th November 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

A. Front

“Dreaming” is a song by British band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark released in 1988 as a single from their compilation album, The Best of OMD. It was the last single before the band split-up, with only Andy McCluskey to carry on working under the OMD banner, and not releasing another record for three years. While not overly successful in the UK (where it barely made the top 50), the song was the band’s second most successful chart entry on the US Billboard Hot 100, reaching #16.

Stewart Mason, in a positive review for Allmusic, described the song as “dynamite”, and wrote: “[‘Dreaming’] is easily the group’s best single since 1983’s ‘Telegraph’…It’s a near-perfect pop song, perhaps the last great single by an ’80s synth-pop band.”

The cover art was designed by Stylorouge, with photography by Andrew Catlin.

All the single versions include “Satellite” as a B-side. The other B-side, “Gravity Never Failed”, was a bonus track on the CD single. This song was originally titled “Georgia” and dates back to the 1981 Architecture & Morality sessions. However, the band lost their favour with the song and was thus shelved, and the title “Georgia” was given to a new song and featured on the album.
