heaven 17 - penthouse and pavement

i'm in a synth pop flash at the moment in my penthouse suit. next joint by heaven 17. heaven 17 was formed as a side project in 1980 of the british electric foundation. the production company formed by ian craig marsh and martyn ware, after their depature from the human league. their first album came out in 1981, it is named just as this track but here we have the much better 12" version of penthouse and pavement. enjoy, it is a perfect party tune for the dance floor.

level 42 - starchild

such a cool track, brilliant. it was written 1981 by wally badarou one of the nonofficial members by level 42. wally who often worked together with phil gould and mark king from level 42 joined the band because he was well versed in synthesiser and a genius keyboarder and producer. in early times he worked together with such famous persons like joe cocker, herbie hancock, grace jones and many more. ok thats enough, now it is your turn if you want to know more about level 42 or wally badarou.

...i have seen the sun shine bright in paradise
i am just a starchild born in space...

mascara - see you in L.A.

unbelievable oh yeah, the voice of luther vandross. see you in L.A. by mascara is one of my favorite disco tracks of all time. it was crazy, the music of this track was produced in munich germany and the vocals laid down in new jersey usa. thats the reason why mascara was one more studio only conceived band. five years later after 'see you you i.n L.A' (1984) the got another hit 'baja' today featured on the metro area fabric mix and played by many disco dj's in the world. so let's go and see you in... .

midnight passion - i need your love.mp3

many italo tracks are real love songs. by this thousand of thousand tracks are the most bad once but in my opinion this among to the best. cheesy vocals with a very dancable beat and kicking handclaps, yes ready is the track to smooch with your girl or think about your women of your dreams. midnight passion was one of these hundreds of italo one hit wonders, very well there is nothing more to say. beyond this record it was released 1985 on the historic italo-disco company cruisin records (cruising gang and max him).

every time i close my eyes and dream about you...
