Tracklist: 01.Duran Duran - Girls On Film (Night Version) (5:31) 02.Duran Duran - Girls On Film (3:31) 03.Duran Duran - Faster Than Light (4:30) "Girls on Film" is the third single by Duran Duran, released on 13 July 1981. The single became Duran Duran's Top 10 breakthrough in the UK Singles Chart, peaking at Number 5 in July 1981. The band personally selected the song for release following the failure of its predecessor, "Careless Memories", which had been chosen by their record company, EMI. Its popularity provided a major boost to sales of the band's eponymous debut album, Duran Duran, which had been released a month earlier. The song did not chart in the United States on its initial release, but it became popular and widely known after receiving heavy airplay on MTV when the Duran Duran album was re-issued in 1983. The song begins with a recording of the rapid whirring of a motor drive on a camera. Both manager Paul Berrow and photographer Andy Earl claim to have supplied the camera for the recording. Over the years, "Girls on Film" has become a staple of the encores for Duran Duran's live performances and is often the final song of a concert, during which lead singer Simon Le Bon introduces the rest of the band. The song, along with "Rio", was originally omitted from the 1984 live album Arena to make room for newer and less familiar album material from 1983's Seven and the Ragged Tiger. Both tracks were included as bonus material in the 2004 CD reissue of Arena. The b-side of the single was another song initially unavailable anywhere else, a synthesiser-heavy dance track called "Faster Than Light".

Tracklist: 01.U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday (4:34) 02.U2 - Two Hearts Beat As One (U.S. Remix) (5:41) 03.U2 - New Year's Day (U.S. Remix) (4:29) "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is a song by Irish rock band U2. It is the opening track from their 1983 album War and was released as the album's third single on 11 March 1983 in Germany and the Netherlands. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is noted for its militaristic drumbeat, harsh guitar, and melodic harmonies. One of U2's most overtly political songs, its lyrics describe the horror felt by an observer of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, mainly focusing on the Bloody Sunday incident in Derry where British troops shot and killed unarmed civil rights protesters and bystanders. At the same time, the lyrics reject hate and revenge as a response, as noted in the line "There's many lost, but tell me who has won." Along with "New Year's Day," the song helped U2 reach a wider listening audience. It was generally well received by critics on the album's release. The song has remained a staple of U2's live concerts. During its earliest performances, the song created controversy. Lead singer Bono reasserted the song's anti-sectarian-violence message to his audience for many years. Today, it is considered one of U2's signature songs, and is one of the band's most performed tracks. Critics rate it among the best political protest songs, and it has been covered by over a dozen artists. It was named the 272nd-greatest song by Rolling Stone on their list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

The band consisted of David Baker and Simon Leonard. In 1984, the duo was signed by Mute and released its debut single, the quirky "Letters to a Friend." "Letters to a Friend" easily distinguished itself from the glut of synthesizer-laden records from the mid-'80s with Baker's distinctly British talk-sing style and the psychedelic feel of the keyboards. The single was produced by British producer and founder of Mute Records Daniel Miller. I Start Counting gained a significant cult following in the U.K. and the U.S., especially among American suburban teens who were discovering Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk in dance clubs. In 1985 the duo released their debut album My Translucent Hands.

"Solar Eclipse" is song by Italian band The Creatures not to ne confused with the British band of the same name. The Italo Disco band is one of the lost meteors of the 1980s. The Creatures consists of members Mario Flores and Maurizio Sangineto. "Solar Eclipse" was taken from the album "Illusion" released in 1985.

Tracklist: 01.Sugarhill Gang - Rapper's Delight (Long Version) (14:35) 02.Sugarhill Gang - Rapper's Delight (Short Version) (6:35) "Rapper's Delight" is a hip-hop song released in September 1979 by The Sugarhill Gang, and produced by ex-Mickey and Sylvia member Sylvia Robinson. While it was not the first single to include rapping, it is generally considered to be the song that introduced hip hop music to audiences in the United States and around the world (and the very first full-length rap song, which featured rapping parts throughout the entire song, unlike the first single). The song is ranked number 251 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and number 2 on VH1's 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs. It is also included in NPR's list of the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century. It was preserved into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress in 2011. Songs on the National Recording Registry are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." The song also notably includes musical parts from Chic's "Good Times", resulting in band members Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards suing Sugar Hill Records over copyright; a settlement reached allowed the two to receive songwriter credits. The song was recorded in a single take. There are three versions of the original version of the song: 14:35 (12" long version), 6:30 (12" short version), and 3:55 (7" shortened single version). In the U.S. the song reached #36 on the Billboard Hot 100. Internationally "Rappers Delight" hit #1 Netherlands, #1 Canada and #3 U.K. while also making the top five inseveral other European countries.
Tracklist: 01.The Human League - Don't You Want Me (3:57) 02.The Human League - Seconds (4:58) 03.The Human League - Don't You Want Me (Ext. Dance Mix) (7:30) "Don't You Want Me" is a single by British synthpop group The Human League, released on 27 November 1981 as the fourth single from their third studio album Dare (1981). It is the band's best known and most commercially successful recording and was the 1981 Christmas number one in the UK, where it has since sold over 1,560,000 copies, making it the 23rd most successful single in UK Singles Chart history. It later topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the US on 3 July 1982 where it stayed for three weeks. In 2015 the song was voted by the British public as the nation's 7th favourite 1980s number one in a poll for ITV. The lyrics were originally inspired after lead singer Philip Oakey read a photo-story in a teen-girl's magazine. Originally conceived and recorded in the studio as a male solo, Oakey was inspired by the film A Star Is Born and decided to turn the song into a conflicting duet with one of the band's two teenage female vocalists. Susan Ann Sulley was then asked to take on the role. Up until then, she and the other female vocalist Joanne Catherall had only been assigned backing vocals; Sulley says she was chosen only through "luck of the draw". Musicians Jo Callis and Philip Adrian Wright created a synthesizer score to accompany the lyrics which was much harsher than the version that was actually released. Initial versions of the song were recorded but Virgin Records-appointed producer Martin Rushent was unhappy with them. He and Callis remixed the track, giving it a softer, and in Oakey's opinion, "poppy" sound. Oakey hated the new version and thought it the weakest track on Dare, resulting in one of his infamous rows with Rushent. Oakey disliked it so much that it was relegated to the last track on side two of the (then) vinyl album. Before the release of Dare, three of its tracks—"The Sound of the Crowd", "Love Action (I Believe in Love)", and "Open Your Heart"—had already been released as successful singles. With a hit album and three hit singles in a row, Virgin's chief executive Simon Draper decided to release one more single from the album before the end of 1981. His choice, "Don't You Want Me", instantly caused a row with Oakey who did not want another single to be released because he was convinced that "the public were now sick of hearing The Human League" and the choice of the "poor quality filler track" would almost certainly be a disaster, wrecking the group's new-found popularity. Virgin were adamant that a fourth single would be released and Oakey finally agreed on the condition that a large colour poster accompany the 7" single, because he felt fans would "feel ripped off" by the 'substandard' single alone. The Human League often added cryptic references to their productions and the record sleeve of "Don't You Want Me" featured the suffix of "100". This was a reference to The 100 Club, a restaurant/bar in Sheffield. Today, the song is widely considered a classic of its era. In a retrospective review, Stephen Thomas Erlewine, senior editor for AllMusic, described the song as "a devastating chronicle of a frayed romance wrapped in the greatest pop hooks and production of its year." Oakey still describes it as over-rated, but acknowledges his initial dismissal was misguided and claims pride in the track. Oakey is also at pains to point out another misconception: that it is not a love song, but "a nasty song about sexual power politics". "Don't You Want Me" was released in the UK on 27 November 1981. The B side was "Seconds" another track lifted straight from the Dare album. Like previous singles, a 12" version was also issued featuring the original version of "Don't You Want Me" and "Seconds" on the A side and an "extended dance mix" lasting seven and a half minutes on the B side. This mix is also features on the Love and Dancing album released under the name of The League Unlimited Orchestra in 1982.
To the amazement of the band (and especially Oakey), it entered the UK Singles Chart at No.9 and shot to number one the following week, remaining there over the Christmas period for a total of five weeks. It ultimately became the biggest selling single to be released in 1981, and the fifth biggest selling single of the entire decade. Its success was repeated six months later in the US, with "Don't You Want Me" hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks. Billboard magazine ranked it as the sixth-biggest hit of 1982. The single was certified Gold by the RIAA the same year for sales of a million copies. It is notable as the first song featuring the revolutionary Linn LM-1 drum machine to hit No. 1 on the UK charts and also the first LM-1 track to top the Billboard Hot 100.

Tracklist: 01.Spandau Ballet - To Cut A Long Story Short (Mix 1) (6:31) 02.Spandau Ballet - To Cut A Long Story Short (Version) (Mix 2) (3:57) "To Cut a Long Story Short" is a 1980 song by Spandau Ballet. It was their debut single and reached number 5 on the UK Singles Chart. It appeared on the album Journeys to Glory. The song has been speculated to be about a veteran, perhaps of Vietnam, who is drafted and suffers from PTSD; the lyrics are told from the man's point of view as a boy being drafted, how he gets no answers as to why he must join the war. "To Cut a Long Story Short" was Vince Clarke's inspiration to write Depeche Mode's "Just Can't Get Enough", to which the keyboard style bears a certain similarity. The signature riff from "To Cut a Long Story Short" is used as a sample looping throughout the Freestylers track "In Love with You" on their album Adventures in Freestyle.

Tracklist: 01.Visage - Fade To Grey (6:15) 02.Visage - The Steps (3:15) "Fade to Grey" is the second single by the British pioneers of the New Romantic movement Visage, released on Polydor Records in 1980. The song was the band's most successful single. It entered the singles charts in late 1980, peaking at no. 8 in the UK Singles Chart and reaching no. 1 in Germany and Switzerland. Steve Strange was on lead vocals; the French lyrics were spoken by Rusty Egan's Belgian girlfriend Brigitte Arens. The music video became one of the first videoclips that Kevin Godley and Lol Creme directed, before they became known for their works with the Police, Duran Duran and Herbie Hancock. The song features the same lyrics in two languages, English and French. The English lyrics are sung, whereas the French lyrics are spoken by a female voice. Steve Strange and Midge Ure both claimed to have been the one who came up with the idea for the French vocal in the track. On the finished track, the French vocal was performed by Brigitte Arens, a young student from Luxembourg who was Rusty Egan's girlfriend at the time. On the album, the song is credited to Billy Currie, Chris Payne and Midge Ure. In his 2002 autobiography, Strange said it was not fair to credit the song to Ure, Currie and Payne only, since his input was significant and he was "the focal point of the group". Currie and Payne worked on the instrumental part during the sound checks on Gary Numan's 1979 tour. Cedric Sharpley, the drummer of Numan's backing band, was also heavily involved. In those days it was called "Toot City". While setting the track listing of the Visage album, Midge Ure suggested the use of the melody and wrote the song's lyrics.
Tracklist: 01.Duran Duran - Careless Memories (3:46) 02.Duran Duran - Fame (3:18) 03.Duran Duran - Khanada (3:27) "Careless Memories" is the second single by Duran Duran, released on 20 April 1981. The band's debut single "Planet Earth" had been a Top 20 hit, so it was regarded as a major setback when "Careless Memories" stalled at No. 37 in the UK charts, particularly as it was to herald the June release of the debut album Duran Duran. It has since come to light that the decision to release the single was not the band's but EMI's. After its failure, executives decided to let Duran Duran choose their own single releases. The band's first selection was "Girls on Film" and it duly became their first Top 5 hit in the UK. The song "Khanada" (pronounced "keh-NAY-duh") was included as the B-side to the single. It is reported to have been written for fashion designer Jane Kahn who owned, with partner Patti Bell, the Hurst Street shop Kahn & Bell where Duran Duran (and numerous other clubgoers of the day) shopped for clothes. "Careless Memories" is one of three original-era singles that didn't include a remix of the title track (although the fade-out on the 12" is slightly longer), the other two being "Save A Prayer" and "A View to a Kill". To compensate for this, EMI issued a bonus B-side on the 12", a faithful cover of David Bowie's "Fame". However, the "Careless Memories" 12" version fades out at 3:44 seconds, the 7" version three seconds earlier at 3:41. The 7" version is included in the "Singles Box Set 1981-1985" but runs to 3:44 as it includes three seconds of silence after the fade out. The album version has a cold end.
Tracklist: 01.Human League - The Sound Of The Crowd (Complete) (6:28) 02.Human League - The Sound Of The Crowd (Instrumental) (4:10) "The Sound of the Crowd" is a song by the British synthpop group The Human League. It became the band's commercial breakthrough, reaching #12 on the UK Singles Chart in May 1981. Written jointly by lead singer Philip Oakey and keyboard player Ian Burden, the song was recorded at Genetic Sound Studios, Reading, in March 1981. Originally released as a stand-alone single in April 1981, it was subsequently re-recorded and incorporated into the studio album Dare, later in the year. "The Sound Of The Crowd" was the first Human League song to feature female vocals, from new band members Susan Ann Sulley and Joanne Catherall, interacting with Philip Oakey's baritone lead. Apart from the catchy imperatives such as "Get in line now!" and "Get around town!", the song contains some more obscure lyrics such as "Make a shroud pulling combs through a backwash frame" and "Stroke a pocket with a print of a laughing sound". Discussing the song in a 2009 interview Ian Burden said: On The Sound of the Crowd I scribbled down some stream-of-consciousness words so that I could demonstrate the vocal parts to him (Oakey) without having to do the naff la-la-la-hum-hum-hum type of explanation. He went off and wrote a new chorus vocal, but surprisingly kept my verse lyrics! The single was the first to feature a distinctive, though short-lived, marketing tactic, where Human League singles were labelled 'Red' or 'Blue' to help buyers differentiate between the band's musical styles. 'Red' was for dance tracks, 'Blue' for pop songs. "The Sound Of The Crowd" was designated 'Red'. When asked to explain the system, vocalist Sulley explained that "Red is for posers, for Spandy (Spandau Ballet) types." Oakey added: "Blue is for ABBA fans." The group first appeared on Top of the Pops to perform the song on 30 April 1981 when it was at no. 53 in the UK Singles Chart. The single entered the UK Top 40 a week later at no. 34 and after three weeks it reached its peak position of no. 12. A second Top of the Pops performance took place on 21 May 1981 when the single was at no. 15. The original 7" B side "The Sound of the Crowd (Add Your Voice)" is an instrumental remix of the A side, an edit of which was later used as the closing track of the remix album Love and Dancing, issued in 1982 under the name of The League Unlimited Orchestra. A longer instrumental version of "The Sound of the Crowd" featured as the B side to the 12" release.

Tracklist: 01.Duran Duran - Is There Something I Should Know? (Monster Mix) (6:42) 02.Duran Duran - Is There Something I Should Know? (Short Mix) (4:09) 03.Duran Duran - Faith In This Colour (4:07) "Is There Something I Should Know?" is the eighth single by British band Duran Duran, released on 19 March 1983. The song was released as a stand-alone single and became the band's first UK number one record. It debuted in the number one position on the UK Singles Chart on 26 March 1983. The single also had great success in America, where it was released in late May: it reached number four on the US Billboard Hot 100 on 6 August 1983 and sold more than a million copies. "Is There Something I Should Know?" was recorded in London, with producer Ian Little in December 1982. Although generally regarded as a stand-alone single, it was added to the 1983 US re-issue of the band's 1981 debut album, Duran Duran. The first album on which the song featured in the UK was the inaugural Now That's What I Call Music compilation at the end of the year. The singles from the Duran Duran album did not receive much airplay in the United States on the album's first release; both the band and the New Romantic fashion style were unknown, and very few British bands were able to break into American radio at that time. However, by the end of 1982, the band's Rio album was rapidly climbing the American charts, fueled by saturation airplay of various Duran Duran videos on MTV. The band and their label, Capitol/EMI, decided to re-release the debut album in the United States with the inclusion of this newly recorded single. Because of the time limitations of vinyl records, the inclusion of "Is There Something I Should Know?" required the omission of the album track "To The Shore" on the reissue. "To The Shore" was reinstated on later compact disc pressings. "Is There Something I Should Know?" was the song Duran Duran used to open their 1983/84 Seven and the Ragged Tiger album tour shows with and also Duran Duran's charity concert at Aston Villa football ground 1983. In a retrospective review of the song, Allmusic journalist Donald A. Guarisco wrote that the lyrics "deal with a difficult romantic relationship in rather obtuse terms." Guarisco highlighted what he described as "odd turns of phrase" in the lyrics, such as: "and fiery demons all dance when you walk through that door/Don't say your easy on me 'cause you're about as easy as a nuclear war." Although Guarisco questioned the lyrics, he praised the melody in the song. He wrote: "The melody of 'Is There Something I Should Know?' is one of Duran Duran's catchiest, matching twisty verse melodies full of ear-catching hooks with a harmonized chorus. The B-side to "Is There Something I Should Know?" in Europe is the instrumental "Faith in this Colour". An "Alternate Slow Mix" of "Faith in this Colour" was used on the 7" single, some pressings of which included brief unauthorized sound samples from the movie Star Wars -- these were promptly withdrawn when copyright concerns were raised, although on the "Alternate Slow Mix" from the singles box set, the scene, in which Obi-Wan leaves to disable the tractor beam, can clearly be heard in the last minute. Duran Duran has not confirmed this, though. The mainly instrumental "Monster Mix" of "Is There Something I Should Know?" was completed by producers Ian Little and Alex Sadkin. In the US, the song "Careless Memories" is the B-side of "Is There Something I Should Know?".

Leave a big hole in the wall" "Sexcrime (Nineteen Eighty-Four)" is a song written and performed by the British duo Eurythmics. It was released as the first single from their album 1984 (For the Love of Big Brother), which served as the soundtrack to the film Nineteen Eighty-Four, an adaptation of the novel of the same name by George Orwell. The song was produced by Dave Stewart. "Sexcrime" is a song which features heavy sampling of Lennox's voice, utilizing snippets of her vocal performance to produce a stuttering effect. Also prominently featured is the voice of Stewart, with the aid of a vocoder, uttering the phrase "nineteen eighty four". It was the first of two singles released from the soundtrack album. The term "sexcrime" is one of several Newspeak words found within the novel. The song was originally intended to appear in the film 1984, but was dropped prior to the film's release. However, it was used as background music for the film's trailer, and the song's promotional video was included on home video releases of the film. In addition to the standard 7" and 12" formats, the song was also released as a limited edition 12" picture disc. The single peaked at number 4 on the UK Singles Chart becoming Eurythmics' sixth consecutive Top 10 hit. It was one of the duo's biggest selling singles in the UK, being certified Silver by the BPI for sales in excess of 250,000 copies. It was also a big hit throughout Europe, a top 10 hit in New Zealand, a top 20 hit in Canada, and one of the duo's biggest selling singles in Australia. "Sexcrime" met with strong resistance on United States radio and on video outlets such as MTV — the song's title was particularly controversial to those who were not aware of the meaning of the word in Orwell's novel. The music video (featuring a straightforward performance of the song by Lennox and Stewart) had limited rotation on MTV. "Sexcrime" peaked at a lowly number 81 on the Billboard Hot 100, but was much more successful on the US Hot Dance Club Play chart, where it reached number 2. The b-side “I Did It Just The Same” is derived from Orwell’s text and is taken from a passage in the book where the protagonist, Winston Smith, relates how he committed “sexcrime” with a prostitute—initially deceived by her makeup, when he got close to her, he realised she was “about fifty – but I did it just the same”.

Tracklist: 01.M+M - Black Stations/White Stations (Extended Dance Mix) (6:26) 02.M+M - Black Stations/White Stations (Instrumental Remix) (4:54) Today, the US celebrates the life and legacy of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr, who would have turned 89 years old. I thought it fitting to post a single dealing with racism a topic that we are dealing with, in 2018. "Black Stations/White Stations" is a song recorded by the Canadian group Martha and the Muffins in 1984 from the album Mystery Walk under the shortened name M+M. The track was the first single to be released after the act became a duo consisting of lead singer Martha Johnson and group founder Mark Gane (hence the shortened name, with the first letter of their first names). The single is a departure from the new wave genre, with emphasis this time around on a dance/funk direction, which featured brothers Randy & Michael Brecker and Wayne Mills on horns. The song's title deals with the subject of racism in the radio industry, at a time when more cutting-edged songs and the radio stations in general were starting to open up to newer formats like rhythmic contemporary, which genre this song predates. It also took on how station policies dictates what can or can not be played on air. This was evidenced by Johnson, who recalled how a radio station refused to play a song about an interracial relationship. That experience prompted Johnson and Gane to write about their feelings over this practice by recalling the events, in which they use lyrics like "I dream in Black and White" and call for stations in general to "Stand Up and Face the Music/This Is 1984!". The single was also controversial in its own right, as radio stations avoided playing the single because of the song's title and lyrics despite being a modest hit in Canada, where it reached No. 26. In the United States, the single peaked at No. 63 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and No. 2 on the Dance/Disco chart, where it reached number 2 in 1984.
Tracklist: 01.Expos - Exposed To Love (6:21) 02.Expos - Exposed To Love (Dub Mix) (6:43) "Exposed to Love" is a dance single by the female dance-pop trio Exposé. Released in December 1985, it was the original group's second single after "Point of No Return," with Alé Lorenzo singing lead vocals. "Exposed to Love" remains the only single to feature vocals from the original group's lineup ("Point of No Return" was subsequently rerecorded with the second lineup) and is featured as such on the album Exposure. Ann Curless, Gioia Bruno, and Jeanette Jurado, the group's current members, share the lead vocals during live performances. The single charted on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Singles Sales and Hot Dance Club Play charts at #19 and #12, respectively. Billboard named the song #69 on their list of 100 Greatest Girl Group Songs of All Time.

Tracklist: 01.Sandii & The Sunsetz - Dreams Of Immigrants (Full Version) (4:43) 02.Sandii & The Sunsetz - The Mirrors Of Eyes /Jinjirogeh - The Chunk O' Funk (9:50) For The Immigrants and DREAMERS " Dreams Of Immigrants" is a 1982 single by Japanese new wave/synthpop band that collaborated from 1979 until the 1990s. The Sunsetz, led by Makoto Kubota, and Sandii started as separate artists, and each have a separate discography. However, their collaboration provided a particular body of work that is representative of the period, and which successfully blended Eastern, Western and pop influences. "Dreams Of Immigrants" was penned by lyricist Chris Mosdell who has written lyrics for Sarah Brightman and Boy George; co-written lyrics with Michael Jackson, had his work covered by Eric Clapton. The Sunsetz spent a lot of time in the UK, recording with David Sylvian and Fun Boy Three producer Dave Jordan. Sounds, NME and Melody Maker gave The Sunsetz extensive coverage which gave the group a lot of credibility in Japan, leading to increased record sales. Their live act gained many fans in the international music industry following their support slot on the final Japan world tour. The Sunsetz went on to tour and play festivals with Eurythmics, Inxs, Blondie and David Bowie. **The two songs on the b-side are blended together forming one continuous mix. To keep integrity of the original vinyl I did not split the tracks.

Tracklist: 01.Soft Cell - Loving You, Hating Me (Special Mix) (7:50) 02.Soft Cell - Heat (6:14) 03.Soft Cell - Loving You, Hating Me (LP Version) (4:20) "Loving You, Hating Me" was the proposed third UK single from the album The Art of Falling Apart by English synth-pop duo Soft Cell.

The duration for this track is printed on the sleeve as 6:59 while the label lists 7:50. The label is correct. "Loving You Hating Me" is a song about the battle of the sexes - a punch up rather than a full blown war! In a January 1983 interview with Soft Cell published in Melody Maker, Marc Almond explained "Everybody has sado-masochistic tendencies, most people love to be hurt because of the drama and it's pleasurable hurting somebody else because, afterwards, you can feel really sorry for them".

Tracklist: 01.Madonna - Burning Up (12" Version) (5:55) 02.Madonna - Physical Attraction (Album Version) (6:36) "Burning Up" is a song by American singer Madonna from her 1983 eponymous debut album. It was released as the album's second single on March 9, 1983, in some countries as a double-A side single with "Physical Attraction", another song from the album. The song was presented as an early recorded demo by Madonna to Sire Records who green-lighted the recording of the single after the first single "Everybody" became a dance hit. Madonna collaborated with Reggie Lucas, who produced the single while John Benitez provided the guitar riffs and backing vocals. Musically, the song incorporates instrumentation from bass guitar, synthesizers and drums, and the lyrics talk of the singer's lack of shame in declaring her passion for her lover. Released with "Physical Attraction" on the B side, the song was given mixed reviews from contemporary critics and authors, who noted the song's darker, urgent composition while praising its dance beats. The single failed to do well commercially anywhere, except the dance chart in the United States, where it peaked at #3, and the Australian charts, where it was a top 20 hit. After a number of live appearances in clubs to promote the single, it was added to the set-list of the 1985 Virgin Tour. An electric guitar version was performed on the 2004 Re-Invention World Tour and the 2015–2016 Rebel Heart Tour. The accompanying music video of the song portrayed Madonna in the classic submissive female positions, while writhing in passion on an empty road, for her lover who appeared to come from her behind on a car. The video ended showing Madonna driving the car instead, thereby concluding that she was always in charge. Many authors noted that the "Burning Up" music video was a beginning of Madonna's depiction of her taking control of a destabilized male sexuality.

Tracklist: 01.Dan Hartman - Second Nature (Extended Version) (7:15) 02.Dan Hartman - Second Nature (Dub Version) (6:41) 03.Dan Hartman - Second Nature (LP Version) (3:56) "Second Nature" is a song by American musician-singer-songwriter Dan Hartman, released as the fourth and final single from his 1984 album I Can Dream About You. The single was released in early 1985. I Can Dream About You was Hartman's debut album for the MCA Records label, and marked the first album to feature Hartman's longtime songwriting partner Charlie Midnight, who he would continue to write with throughout the rest of the decade. "Second Nature" was written by Hartman and Midnight, and was produced by Hartman and Jimmy Iovine. Midnight would also provide backing vocals on the song. Like the rest of the album, "Second Nature" was recorded at Hartman's own home studio "Multi-Level" and was mixed at Image Recording in Los Angeles. As the fourth and final single from the album, "Second Nature" continued the success of the album's title track which was a Top 10 hit in America. The second single "We Are the Young" had peaked at #25, however the third single "Name of the Game" did not become a commercial success. "Second Nature" returned Hartman to the Top 40, where it peaked at #39 on the Billboard Hot 100, lasting a total of 12 weeks on the chart. It also made #40 on the Dance Music/Club Play Singles Chart, where it lasted on the chart for 4 weeks, and #19 on the Adult Contemporary Chart, where it lasted on the chart for 7 weeks. "Second Nature" would be Hartman's last charting single in America within his solo career. In the UK the single peaked at #66, after "I Can Dream About You" had only reached #78 in late 1984. Following "Second Nature" the song would be re-released, and peaked at #12 in the UK. "Second Nature" did gain some minor success in UK clubs and brought back echoes from the days of his 1978 hit "Instant Replay", which had been a Top 10 hit in the country. In the February 16, 1985, issue of Billboard magazine, the song was listed twice under the Hot 100 Singles Radio Action section. It was noted that "Second Nature" was within the Top 3 songs played within Regions 1 and 3, both covering the far eastern side of America. Region 1 included such places as New York area, and Region 3 included states such as Florida. By the issue of March 9, 1985, under Hot 100 Singles Retail Action, the song was listed as one of Top 3 in Regions 6, 7 and 8. In a 1984 interview with Hartman, he described the song's meaning. He revealed "Second Nature" is a good old love song. It's like a song about being elated and excited and in love, and how much just every day of life is made easy."

Newton-John was pregnant at the time of the single’s release and was therefore unable to promote it. A music video was produced and recieved heavy rotation on MTV and VH-1, the video features a very pregnant Olivia mostly filmed on a bed of red satin sheets, the video also featured Olivia’s husband at the time Matt Lattanzi.

The single launched a long string of singles(stretching over three albums) where Sting collaborated with New Orleans saxophonist and one-time Tonight Show bandleader Branford Marsalis. The song was also performed at The Brits in February 1995 with M People. He duetted on the song with the band's lead singer, Heather Small and this track was given the dance treatment by the band who were also backed by a 100-strong Gospel Choir at the Earls Court Arena during the annual music awards show. Sting said that he wrote the song as an "antidote" to the Police's 1983 song, "Every Breath You Take", which he also wrote. The song was also lampooned by The Dead Milkmen in the song "If You Love Somebody, Set Them on Fire," from their 1990 album Metaphysical Graffiti. The single B-side consists of a studio recording of the song "Another Day" which would appear the following year in a live version on Sting's live album Bring On the Night.

The song was released six months in advance of the album and showcased the band’s edgier sound, as compared to their debut LP The Hurting (1983). It was also a moderate success internationally. “Mothers Talk” was written in 1983 and was first publicly performed during the band’s late 1983 tour. In early 1984, the band went into the studio to record the song as their next single, though the recording sessions with their new producer Jeremy Green did not work out as planned and the recording was scrapped.

Hughes stayed on with the band to record their second album, Songs from the Big Chair. Along with its B-side, “Empire Building”, “Mothers Talk” was one of the first Tears for Fears songs to demonstrate a creative use of sampling. The strings at the beginning of the song were culled from a Barry Manilow record, while the drum sample around which “Empire Building” is built was lifted from the Simple Minds song “Today I Died Again”. This was the second Tears for Fears single for which Phonogram Records would use the picture disc and coloured vinyl gimmicks as a promotional tool, as well as the first one to feature multiple 12″ releases offering different remixes of the track. Limited quantities of the 7″ single also came with a free Tears For Fears window sticker of the band’s new logo.

The remix features echo effects added to Peter Garrett's vocals and a continuation or reprise of Rob Hirst's drum solo after the nominal ending of the song.

Tracklist: 01.Queen - I Want To Break Free (Extended Mix) (7:12) 02.Queen - Machines (Or "Back To Humans") (Instrumental Version) (5:04) "I Want to Break Free" is a song by the British rock band Queen, from their eleventh album The Works (1984). It was written by bass guitarist John Deacon and was released in three versions: album, single and extended. It came to be included in most live concerts by the group, in several videos and in The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert where it was sung by Lisa Stansfield. The song is largely known for its music video for which all the band members dressed in women's clothes, a concept proposed by Roger Taylor, which parodied the long-running ITV soap opera Coronation Street. The second part of the video included a composition rehearsed and performed with the Royal Ballet and choreographed by Wayne Eagling. Whereas the parody was acclaimed in the United Kingdom, it was considered controversial in the United States and banned by MTV and other stations. After its release in 1984, the single of the song was well received all over Europe and South America, where it was listed within top ten and regarded as an anthem of the fight against oppression. The single reached only the 45th position in the US charts, but reached number 3 in the UK and was certified silver with 200,000+ copies sold. The rear of the sleeve incorrectly lists the B side track as just "Machines (or 'Back To Humans')" which was the B side in many countries, but the label correctly lists "Machines (or 'Back To Humans') - Instrumental Version".
Tracklist: 01.The Smiths - How Soon Is Now? (Long Version) (6:44) 02.The Smiths - Girl Afraid (2:48) 03.The Smiths - How Soon Is Now? (U.S. Edit) (3:54) "How Soon Is Now?" is a song by the English rock band the Smiths, written by singer Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr. Originally a B-side of the 1984 single "William, It Was Really Nothing", "How Soon Is Now?" was subsequently featured on the compilation album Hatful of Hollow and on US, Canadian, Australian, and Warner UK editions of Meat Is Murder. Belatedly released as a single in the UK in 1985, it reached No. 24 on the UK Singles Chart. When re-released in 1992, it reached No. 16. In 2007, Marr said "How Soon Is Now?" is "possibly [the Smiths'] most enduring record. It's most people's favourite, I think." Despite its prominent place in the Smiths' repertoire, it is not generally considered to be representative of the band's style. Although a club favourite, it did not chart as well as expected. Most commentators put this down to the fact that the song had been out on vinyl in a number of forms before being released as a single in its own right. The original track runs for nearly seven minutes; however, the 7" single edit cut the length down to under four minutes. The complete version is generally used on compilations. This U.S. 12" contains an alternate U.S. edit which is different from the UK 7-inch mix.

This was Cheyne's only charted single, which topped the U.S. Dance chart for 1 week on June 8, 1985, and remained on the chart for eleven weeks. On the soul chart Call Me Mr. Telephone peaked at number sixty-two.
