“Catch Me (I’m Falling)” is a dance-pop song released by the American group Pretty Poison in 1987. It was included on the soundtrack to the film Hiding Out, which starred Jon Cryer and came out the same year; the song later appeared on Pretty Poison’s debut album, Catch Me I’m Falling (1988). It was the group’s biggest hit single to date, peaking at number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart in late September 1987. Later that same year, the song charted inside the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at number eight and remaining in the top 40 for 14 weeks. The single was certified gold by the RIAA on March 9, 1989. In the UK the song entered the Top 100 for two weeks at the end of January 1988 and peaked at number 85.

Hue And Cry – Labour Of Love (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 20th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

pseudo-satisfaction baby!

“Labour of Love” was a hit single by Scottish duo/brothers Greg and Pat Kane, better known as Hue and Cry. Included on the album Seduced and Abandoned, it was released as their second single in 1987 after their first hit “I Refuse” had failed to make the UK Top 75.

Showcasing a somewhat funky sound that was very different from their later ballad releases, this song remains their biggest hit to date, peaking at #6 on the UK Singles Chart and meriting inclusion on many hits compilations of the 1980s.

The song is written from the perspective of a disillusioned working-class Conservative voter of the mid-1980s who has worked hard to believe in Margaret Thatcher’s story of a new proud, individualist Britain and who is now realising that there is less “gain” than “pain” in doing so.

The band had a lucky break with this single when they were asked to perform it on the BBC music show Top of the Pops at short notice. American band Los Lobos were booked to be on the show that week with their hit “La Bamba” but due to a mix-up with their visa applications, they were unable to perform. Hue and Cry were asked to fill the gap in the show and the exposure that this generated helped propel the single up the UK charts.

The b-sdie “Widescreen” is a non album track.

Men At Work – Everything I Need (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 30th June 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi”

Originally posted February 24, 2011

“Everything I Need” was a single released in 1985 by the Australian group Men at Work. The song was written by Men at Work singer/guitarist Colin Hay and the recording was produced by Hay with keyboardist Greg Ham. The song appeared on the group’s album Two Hearts.

The tune has a bouncy, midtempo pop/rock feel, and is marked by a loud, thwacking drum rhythm and a prominent slide guitar solo.

“Everything I Need” was not a major hit. It peaked at #47 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was in fact to be the last Men at Work single to make the U.S. charts.

Erasure – A Little Respect (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 6th March 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“A Little Respect” is a song written and recorded by British synthpop duo Erasure, released in September 1988 as their tenth single. It was issued as the third European (and second American) single from their album The Innocents.

Known as one of their signature songs, “A Little Respect” continued Erasure’s success on the UK Singles Chart, where it hit number four to become the band’s fifth Top 10 single. It was also Erasure’s second consecutive Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, where it climbed to number 14, and hit number two on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Songs chart. In the U.K. Mark Saunders and Phil Legg provided the remixes, for the U.S. the remixes were made by Justin Strauss.

Written by Erasure members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, the heavily synthesized instrumentation is accentuated by acoustic guitar and Bell’s use of falsetto in the chorus. The lyrics are a plea to a lover to show compassion and respect.
