Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – Make It Better (Forget About Me) (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th October 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

R.I.P. Tom Petty
October 20, 1950 – October 2, 2017

“Make It Better (Forget About Me)” is a song written by Tom Petty of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and David A. Stewart of the Eurythmics. It was released in June 1985 as the third single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 1985 album Southern Accents. Musically it is an uptempo number that pays tribute to the Memphis Soul style, with heavy emphasis on horns and funk-inspired rhythm guitar. The music video continues in the Alice in Wonderland motif of “Don’t Come Around Here No More” and riffs on the ‘model annoyed by flying insect with the face of the singer superimposed’ as in the then-recent “You Might Think” video by The Cars.

“Make It Better (Forget About Me)” peaked at #54 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on July 6, 1985 spending eight weeks on the survey.

Pet Shop Boys – Suburbia (The Full Horror) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 4th October 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Suburbia” is a song by UK synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys. It was remixed and released as the fourth single from the album Please in 1986 and became the band’s second UK Top 10 hit, peaking at number 8.

The song’s primary inspiration is the 1984 Penelope Spheeris film Suburbia, and its depiction of violence and squalor in the suburbs of Los Angeles; in addition, the tension of the Brixton riots of 1981 and of 1985 hanging in recent memory led Neil Tennant of the duo to thinking about the boredom of suburbia and the underlying tension among disaffected youth that sparked off the riots at the least provocation.

“Suburbia” was partly inspired by the film, ‘Suburbia’, a New World Production, produced by Roger Corman, directed by Penelope Spheeris.

Suburbia (The Full Horror) 8:57
Keyboards [Fairlight] – Andy Richards

Depeche Mode – Strangelove (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 3rd October 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Strangelove” is a single by Depeche Mode from their sixth studio album Music for the Masses. It reached number 16 on the UK Singles Chart, number 2 in West Germany and in South Africa, and was a Top 10 success in several other countries, including Sweden and Switzerland. In the US it reached number 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the first of 9 number-ones on the US Dance charts, where it stayed for three weeks at the top.

The b-side “Pimpf” is a dark instrumental that is mostly piano, named after a magazine of the Hitler Youth organizations. “Pimpf” later shows up as the final track on Music for the Masses. There is also a remix available on some “Strangelove” single releases called “Fpmip” (“Pimpf” backwards).

This is the first US 12″ release for “Strangelove” released May 20th, 1987.

Significant to the US 12 inch single release (20696-0) is the “Blind Mix”. Unlike every other release of this mix worldwide, the US release fades the mix out prematurely (by a little under a minute). This abnormal mastering job was also available on the Sire Records promotional CD compilation “Hit It”, and on other US releases of the remix, until the 1991 CD single box sets.

SIDE A:
Strangelove (Maxi-Mix) 6:31
Strangelove (Midi-Mix) 1:40

SIDE B:
Strangelove (Blind Mix Edit) 6:09
Remix – Daniel Miller, Rico Conning
