The B-52’s – Channel Z (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 24th February 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

“Channel Z” is a single by The B-52’s from their 1989 album Cosmic Thing. The song was the first single from Cosmic Thing, but did not achieve as much success as the follow-ups “Love Shack” and “Roam.” The single was reissued with a new 12″ Mix after these two singles and before “Deadbeat Club.”

The song was about a fictional radio station whose motto was “Channel Z: All Static, All Day, Forever!”.

The song peaked at number 61 on the UK Singles Chart. In the US, it topped the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. The song’s music video features The B-52’s playing on stage in front of an audience, along with clips of them running through a forest. It was shot outside of New York City, according to the credits of The B-52’s 1979–1989.

Madonna – Dress You Up (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 13th December 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“Dress You Up” is a song by American singer Madonna from her second studio album Like a Virgin (1984). It was released on July 31, 1985 as the album’s final single, by Sire Records. The song was the last track to be added to the album as it was submitted late by songwriters Andrea LaRusso and Peggy Stanziale. Madonna pushed for the song’s inclusion on Like a Virgin as she particularly liked its lyrics. Musically, the song is a drum beat driven dance track featuring instrumentation from guitars and vocals from a choir and a guitar solo played by Nile Rodgers, who also produced the song. The lyrics are an extended metaphor for fashion and sex, comparing dressing up with passion. A live performance from Madonna’s first tour was used as the music video.

Critics reacted positively to the dance-pop nature of the track. “Dress You Up” became Madonna’s sixth consecutive top-five single in the United States. It also reached the top-ten in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The song was performed on four of Madonna’s concert tours, most recently on the Rebel Heart Tour (2015–16). “Dress You Up” was added to the “Filthy Fifteen” list of the Parents Music Resource Center, due to the sexual nature of its lyrics.

Posted by DjPaulT on 28th September 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Don’t You Want Me” is the third single from singer Jody Watley’s eponymous debut album. The song was produced by Bernard Edwards of Chic-fame and written by Jody Watley, Franne Golde and David Paul Bryant.

Watley’s previous single, “Still a Thrill,” fared well in dance and R&B markets, but less-so in the mainstream. This prompted her label, MCA, to go in a more pop-friendly direction. “Don’t You Want Me” was one of the biggest crossover singles for the year 1987, reaching top ten on the Billboard pop and R&B charts and becoming a number-one dance club hit.

“Don’t You Want Me” landed in the Top 40 of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart the week of October 24, 1987, advancing from #56 to #40. The song reached #6 on December 19, 1987 and remained there for three consecutive weeks.

Internationally the single reched #55 U.K., #46 New Zealand and #24 Canada.
