Burning The Ground: DjPaulT's 80's and 90's Remixes

80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

The Dream Academy – The Love Parade (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 26th March 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“The Love Parade” is the fourth single released by The Dream Academy. It was a more “edgy” song then their previous singles, with the theme being about adultery and erotic temptation. There were two additional singles released in the UK by Blanco y Negro, a 7″ shaped picture disc and a second limited edition release.

There were high hopes for the single, especially from Warner Brothers Records, and there was some degree of promotion of the song (such as a live performance on American Bandstand). However, the single failed to live up to the expectations of their debut single, “Life in a Northern Town”, just making the top 40 (#36) in the US but reaching #78 in the UK.
