From 1995, it’s Livin’ Joy with “Dreamer”.
One of my favorites from 1979, here’s “The Second Time Around” by Shalamar.
This song is a decade old, but I really, really like the words.
Now that I have found you
You’ve changed my life
Cos you’re the one who showed me
I have everything right
We’re never gonna differ cos we know it’s true
So don’t change me and I won’t change you
Here’s Sophie Ellis-Bextor, “I Won’t Change You”
I’ve posted this track before, but I stumbled across an extended mix of it on YouTube and it got me feeling thinking about the original track again. This song used to PACK the dance floor back in ’92 (before it was released to radio in the U.S. in ’93). It’s actually the song that got me into my modest music production. My version of a radio edit of this track was played nationwide.
Here’s the original ’91 radio edit of “That’s What Love Can Do” by Boy Krazy.
One of my favorite songs post high-school, here’s The Other Ones with “Holiday” from 1987.
Dance with me on this Sunday night.
Here’s DJ Spiller featuring Sophie Ellis-Bextor with “Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)”.
Five years later, I still enjoy this video and song very much.
Here’s Brian Kent, with “I’m Not Crazy”. I thought it might be a good theme song for the day.
It might make some people blush.
I never knew there was a video for this track. It’s a very simple video, but nonetheless I still am happy to see that they went to the effort to make one. This is one of my very favorite tracks from the 90s. It was an import for the UK and was only heard on Abercrombie & Fitch in store radio here in the states, but nonetheless I LOVE IT.
Syncopated piano for the win. Those with a really good ear for this sort of thing will notice that the background singers are Miriam Stockley and Mae McKenna, who sang backups on many tracks by Rick Astley, Kylie Minogue, Sonia and even Donna Summer on her “Another Place and Time” album.
Here’s “Don’t Make Me Wait” by Loveland featuring Rachel McFarlane.
