Dan Hartman – I Can Dream About You (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“I Can Dream About You” is a song performed by American singer Dan Hartman for the soundtrack album of the film Streets of Fire. Released in 1984 as a single from the soundtrack, and included on Hartman’s album I Can Dream About You, it reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song first appeared in Streets of Fire, where it was performed by the fictional group The Sorels. The real voice behind the version used in the film was Winston Ford, but Hartman’s version was the one used on the soundtrack album and released as a single. In a Songfacts interview with the film’s musical director, Kenny Vance, he recalled “The same guy that sings lead on that and “Countdown to Love,” a song that I wrote for the film, was a guy working at a Radio Shack (Winston Ford), and I think when you look at the film and The Sorels are singing it live in the movie, that was the version that was supposed to come out, and I recorded that version. But then when Dan Hartman heard it, I don’t know what happened next, but I know that he took that guy’s voice off and he put his own on, and he had a hit with it. Hollywood is a very slippery place.”

Originally, producer Jimmy Iovine had asked Hartman to write a song for a film he was working on. Hartman was told that the song was going to be sung by four black guys in a concert situation within the film, and Hartman ended up thinking about a demo he made of “I Can Dream About You.” Hartman then went through some legal maneuvering to get the benefit of his breakthrough. The use of the song in the film being performed by actors did not feature Hartman on vocals but a studio singer. After some contract negotiating, Hartman insisted he sing the song on the soundtrack, and that his version be released if a single were to be issued from the soundtrack album. Additionally, any music video had to feature his own voice using the song. These clauses helped Hartman become an “overnight sensation.” Both Hartman and Iovine worked on his 1984, same-titled solo album I Can Dream About You, following the song’s use in the film. The album would spawn two other Top 40 charting singles on the US Billboard Hot 100 – “We Are the Young” and “Second Nature”.

Glass Tiger – Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone) (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)” is a song by Canadian rock band Glass Tiger. It was released in January 1986 as the lead from their debut album, The Thin Red Line. The song reached number-one in Canada and number 2 in the United States. The song features backing vocals by rock singer Bryan Adams.

In 1985, Glass Tiger chose Jim Vallance to produce the band’s debut album. At the time, Vallance was primarily known as a songwriter, having written most frequently (and successfully) with Bryan Adams. He also had some previous production experience, having produced one album apiece by Adams, Doug and the Slugs and CANO in the early 1980s. The band’s lead vocalist Alan Frew recalled: “It worked out great because we were all at the same stage of development. He didn’t change the sound of the band at all. He let us experiment but wasn’t afraid to get heavy-handed when he had to.” Vallance composed “Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)” with the band, while Adams provided backing vocals. Frew – “On the very first day that we met Jim Vallance, he picked us up at the airport and to break the ice asked us what we were listening to. One was Tears For Fears. We went to his house and drank tea and listened to some tunes. ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World’ came on and we really liked the shuffle beat. So we went into the studio and based on this shuffle beat, we wrote ‘Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)’. First day, first song.”

“Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)” topped the Canadian Singles Chart in March 1986, and spent two weeks at number 1. The single was certified platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association in July. The song entered the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in July, peaked at number 2 in October – kept from number 1 by Janet Jackson’s “When I Think of You” – and spent 24 weeks on the chart. It reached number 1 on the Singles Sales chart and number 6 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart. The song also peaked at number 17 on the Mainstream Rock chart, number 30 on the Adult Contemporary chart, and number 34 on the Billboard Year-End singles chart of 1986. The single reached the top 15 in Australia, number 27 in New Zealand, number 29 in the United Kingdom, and number 40 in the Netherlands.

Frew credited the song’s chart performance to “solid record company involvement” and the band’s international appeal. “We aren’t rewriting musical history by any means,” he added. “But our melody lines are strong and mature enough to appeal to the English-speaking world.” The song won the 1986 Juno Award for Single of the Year, and was named top Canadian single in the Rock Express magazine readers’ poll awards in 1987. In 1996, the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada honored the song for airing more than 100,000 times on Canadian radio.

The “Death Mix” did not appear on CD the re-issue of the bands debut album.

Shannon – Let The Music Play (Special Remix) (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 20th June 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

“Let The Music Play” is a song by American singer Shannon. The song was the first of Shannon’s four #1s on the US Dance chart, reaching the top spot in October 1983. The song also became a huge crossover hit, peaking at #2 on the soul chart and #8 on the US Singles Chart in February 1984. Some mark this as the beginning of the dance-pop era. “Let the Music Play” was Shannon’s only US Top 40 hit. It was ranked 43rd on the 2009 VH1 Special 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders of the 1980s.

The original version of the record was produced by Mark Liggett and Chris Barbosa. By the early 1980s, the backlash against disco had driven dance music off mainstream radio stations in the US. The rhythmic ingenuity of “Let the Music Play” was largely due to Chris Barbosa, who wrote and arranged the original demo track. Rob Kilgore played all the instruments on this seminal track. It featured a series of keyboard chords and drum patterns produced by gating a Roland TR-808 drum machine. Specifically, a reverb was placed across the kick and snare and hard gated to change the sounds. Further, it was one of the first tracks to sync together a TR-808 and a Roland TB-303 bassline, notorious in later years for the instrument responsible for creating acid house. The TB-303 plays the bassline for the entire song; however, in this case, the filter is not adjusted, which was typical for acid house music. This technical achievement made the production even more groundbreaking, and it also resulted in a unique sound, called “The Shannon Sound,” which in time came to be known as freestyle. The Prophet-5 is used for the hookline and sound effects. The vocal on the chorus is sung by session guitarist/vocalist, Jimi Tunnell, who was uncredited. Shannon sings the answering line but it is Tunnell who sings the “Let the music play” hook.

Slant Magazine ranked the song #54 in its 100 Greatest Dance Songs-list in 2006, adding:

“Alongside Madonna’s “Holiday,” D.C.-born Jazz vocalist Brenda Shannon Greene’s “Let the Music Play” helped redefine dance music in the anti-disco early-’80s, setting the stage for the troubled genre for the next decade. Producers Mark Liggett and Chris Barbosa, considered one of the founding fathers of Latin freestyle, merged the then-hip electro-funk sound with Latin rhythms, unwittingly creating the world’s first freestyle song.”
