No Words

Dialogue - Рыбак / The Fisherman (1986) (buy)

Dialogue - Флейта / A Flute (1986) (buy)

Flipping through records out on the sidewalk with no gloves when it starts to snow in Toronto sucks, unless you find stuff like this.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Bronski Beat - Red Dance (1984) (buy)

Not the song I was going to put up when I started this post but sweet synth. Could do well with some editing, but those falsettos bury themselves in your brain.

The Four Tops - 7-Rooms Of Gloom (1967) (buy)

Hardest Four Tops track around, and they didn't even like it.

Hot Pursuit

Giorgio Moroder - Paul's Theme (Jogging Chase) (1982) (buy)

David Ricketts - Chase Scene (1986) (buy)

Way before white Broncos on the 405, people knew how to make a good chase scene in the 80's. The Moroder track is from a split single with David Bowie. It ended up in a Shadowdancer mix, so check it. The second one is from the soundtrack to the 1986 film Echo Park - nuff said.

Being Boiled

The Human League - (Keep Feeling) Fascination (1983) (buy)

The Human League - Total Panic (1983) (buy)

Fun little 45 straight outta Sheffield - feels sort of like a commercial break. The second one feels like a proto Short Circuit, something would do nicely over some How Things Are Made.

10cc - I'm Mandy Come Fly Me (1976) (buy)

Lot's of sites hating on 'How Dare You!', the album from which this track is pulled, but nevertheless what a way to start a song. This album would mark the departure of Creme & Godley, who you might remember from this.

Focus - Soft Vanilla (1975) (buy)

Focus - Hard Vanilla (1975) (buy)

Depending on your football acumen, you might already know today's band, Focus. Their 1971 hit Hocus Pocus showed up Nike's 2010 World Cup Write The Future ad campaign. Anyway enough Wikiparroting, just listen to these tracks from their 1975 album Mother Focus. I'm a softie.

Instinctive Travels

Eugene McDaniels - Jagger The Dagger (1971)(buy)

Eugene McDaniels - Headless Heroes (1971) (buy)

Found it. Twenty (or fourty depending on who's counting) years now behind the curve, but I got my hands on it. Who would have thought a Mick Dagger diss track would not only hold up, but anchor one of the albums marking the beginning of an era? The Left Rev. Mc D., that's who.
