Mel & Kim – Showing Out (Get Fresh at the Weekend) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 23rd August 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Showing Out (Get Fresh at the Weekend)” is the debut single released by sister duo Mel and Kim in 1986.

The single’s B-side, “System”, was originally intended to be the duo’s debut release, but after getting to know the sisters, Pete Waterman felt that the song was too soft for their personalities, and halted the single’s pressing. Mike Stock then wrote “Showing Out (Get Fresh at the Weekend)” for the duo, influenced by the Chicago garage house sound.

The single peaked at #3 in the UK in November 1986, and was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry for sales exceeding 250,000 copies. “Showing Out (Get Fresh at the Weekend)” reached #1 in Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Belgium.

In the United States the single reached #78 on the Billboard singles chart while hitting the #1 position on the Billboard Dance chart. In addition “Showing Out (Get Fresh at the Weekend)” peaked at #23 om the U.S. R&B chart.

Erasure – Victim Of Love (Limited Edition Remix) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 25th May 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Victim of Love” is a song by British synthpop duo Erasure, released in May 1987 as their sixth single overall.

It was the third single to be lifted from the duo’s second album, The Circus, released six weeks earlier, and was remixed for single release.

The song was written by band members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell and incorporates the signature Erasure sound of uptempo rhythm, analog synthesizer and a prominent acoustic guitar. Bell’s lyrics pertain to one’s apprehension when entering into a new love relationship. The song’s protagonist doesn’t “want to look like some kind of fool” or become a “victim of love”.

Upon its release, “Victim of Love” became the second UK Top 10 single for Erasure, peaking at number seven. “Victim of Love” also hit number one on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart (Clarke and Bell would have to wait eighteen years before their second U.S. Dance chart-topper “Breathe”).

The song remains one of Erasure’s signature tunes and is a concert favorite.

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th November 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

a-front

REQUEST

“My Heart Goes Bang (Get Me To The Doctor)” is a 1985 song by the British band Dead or Alive. It was the fourth and final single from the band’s second studio album Youthquake. It charted at #23 in the United Kingdom, #12 in Japan, and became a dance hit in the U.S.

The “American ‘WIPE-OUT’ Mix” is about 25 seconds longer than the version that appears on the Japanese 12″ that I posted in 2012 and does not appear on the newly released Sophisticated Boom Box MMXVI because the label was not able to find the master recording. Also of note “Big Daddy Of The Rhythm (Live)” and “My Heart Goes Bang (Get Me To The Doctor) (Instrumental Version)” are new 2016 re-rip transfers.
