Leprechaun ! Don’t you want to revival it a tinsy bit ? And Silver Platinum (only a coupla hits on Youtube). Oh my god, that was the week The Strikers went out ! And Empress ! When I was dancing to that tune, I thought I was gonna really die for dancing !
1) CAROL JIANI : "Hit n Run Lover"
Maybe the first real Hi-NRG glopbal hit.
2) ALPHONSE MOUZON : "Do I Have To ?"
sigh I can’t find the vid.
3) LEPRECHAUN : "Loc It Up"
I like it so much. And what a zanny name, Leprechaun !
4) UNLIMITED TOUCH : "Searching To Find The One"
When you were a Chic fan, there was many leftovers which were just as fab as the original. This is still wondrous.
5) MISTIC MERLIN : "60 Thrills A Minute"
Great tittle. There should be a porn flick with dat name.
6) DEBRA LAWS : "On My Own"
Oh it’s no fair ! This song ain’t on Youtube.
7) MEL SHEPPARD : "Can I Take You Home ?"
Talk about rare groove : only 133 hits on Youtube.
8) REVELATION : "Feel It"
I listened it 5 times in a go last nite before going to bed. Can U ?
9) COLD FIRE : "Pressure"
It’s glowing from all sides ! Check out the lyrics, 1981 was onother time of economic crisis
10) SILVER PLATINUM : "Dance !"
Mellow, sweet, but that would still get to the danclefloor in a blink
11) ONE WAY : "Push"
For the record, my bro Lala always said that the Al Hudson + One way was one of his best disco records of all time. But that was later.
12) JERRY KNIGHT : "Perfect Fit"
A not too common hit in France but I remember hearing that miauling bass in a record shop and got in, just like sniffing good air.
13) ? : "Won’t You Let Be The One"
14) STRIKERS : "Body Music"
OK, it’s such a famous track that I give you the instrumental François K version that so cool it freezes your brain for the rest of the day. Prelude rocks.
15) FUNKADELIC : I don’t remember , sorry
16) EMPRESS : "Dyin’ To Be Dancing"
The way they turn the ground around with that bass that goes right under your feet. I prefer the short version though.
17) THE ISLEY BROS : "Tonight Is The Night"
A mellow grower.
18) STARPOINT : "Keep On It !"
This was NOT big in France I think.
19) NIGHTLIFE UNLIMITED : "Love Is In You"
You can tell gay Hi-NRG is taking shape.
