Elton John – Wrap Her Up (Germany 12″)

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

NEW 2021 Transfer!
Meticulously Remastered!

Originally posted March 28, 2010

“Wrap Her Up” is a song by English rock performer Elton John, featured on his 1985 album, Ice on Fire. George Michael is also featured on the song. Released as a single, it reached number 12 in the UK Singles Chart, number 22 on the Australian Singles Chart, number 26 in Canada on the RPM Top Singles chart, and number 20 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

George Michael was quoted at the time in Smash Hits magazine that “it sounded like I had my willy in a garotte” because of the falsetto he sings throughout the song.

The song is notable for the number of famous women’s names dropped toward the end of the song, including Kiki Dee, who had duetted with Elton on the hit song “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” in 1976, and also provided background vocals for “Wrap Her Up.” The rest of the list includes (in order) Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Doris Day, Billie Jean King, Samantha Fox, Joan Collins, Katharine Hepburn, Vivien Leigh, Grace Jones, Priscilla Presley, Vanessa Williams, Dusty Springfield, Nancy Reagan, Rita Hayworth, Madonna (as “Material Girl”), Julie Andrews, Superwoman, Annie Lennox, Mata Hari, Anouska Hempel, Shirley Temple, Tallulah Bankhead, Linda Lovelace, Little Eva, Nastassja Kinski, Princess Caroline of Monaco, Pat Fernandez (a close friend of George Michael who appeared in two Wham! videos), and Elsie Tanner.

Paul Jabara – Ocho Rios (US 12″)

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Ocho Rios” was the final single released by American actor, singer, and Oscar-winning songwriter of Lebanese ancestry, born in Brooklyn, New York, Paul Jabara. The song was taken from the concept musical De La Noche: The True Story – A Poperetta, featuring guest vocals from Leata Galloway, Diva Gray, and Pattie Brooks.

Though one of 1986’s most adventurous and fascinating albums, “De La Noche” got off to a rocky start. The problem stems from the constant references in the song, “Ocho Rios,” to “that Negro from Ocho Rios.” Some blacks consider the word Negro offensive. Dance clubs played the single but radio snubbed it. So did MTV. Too controversial, Jabara was told.

Bleeping the word Negro out of the single seemed the obvious answer. But Jabara was against this, insisting it would ruin the song: “If it was blacks talking, they’d say I met a Caucasian in Ocho Rios. That’s funny. If they said ‘I met a white boy in Ocho Rios,’ that’s not funny. The word Negro is funny in ‘Negro From Ocho Rios.’ It’s not a hate word, like all those other names for blacks. What’s all the fuss about?”

Actually, there was no fuss. Just the threat of a fuss killed the single before it developed any momentum.

Sadly this would become Paul Jabara’s last project he died from complications from AIDS in 1992.
