  1. The original track can be found on Guru's 1993 Jazzmatazz. The album version is ok but the remix by CJ Mackintosh, one of the pioneering British DJs, is a classic. I've been looking for this for years and finally found it on a remix compilation, Brilliant! The Global Dance Music Experience Vol 1. Here's the video <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=" &hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src=" &hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>
  2. This is off, Homework, the debut album by this French electronic duo. Off the strength of 2 #1 dance hits, within two months the album was already double platinum. My favorite track on here is the crowd favorite "Around the World", which also has an pretty unique video and in my opinion, is their best song to date. watch it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9MszVE7aR4 d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/294430447/dnm_47.rar
  3. Eyes without a Face is IMO his best ballad, an excellent song co-written by his guitarist Steve Stevens. In 1984, it went to #4 on the pop charts. The female voice is the chorus is Perri Lister, formerly singing backup in the late 70's-early 80's electronic group, Visage, and Idol's girlfriend at the time. watch it http://www.dailymotion.com/SirDroopy/video/2419453 Billy Idol-Eyes Without A Face Uploaded by SirDroopy. - See the latest featured music videos. d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/290123750/dnm_45a.rar
  4. I had this on a couple of my cassette compilations way back when
  5. This is a very good third album from Washington, D.C. D.J.s , Rob Garza & Eric Hilton. For those that never heard of these guys, they are a mix of Bjork, ambient music, with a touch of Sweetback and sometimes a political message. They hire an array of singers from different countries to interpret their multi-national sounds. IMO, the best track on this cd is "The richest man in Babylon". It's a laid back hip hop/reggae track and the guest MC for this song is "Notch", a Puerto Rican, Portuguese, Native American, Jamaican, Afro-Cuban & French rapper. check out the video http://www.megavideo.com/?v=QJBBJILN d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/264252631/The_...Corporation.avi
  6. I beg to differ because whenever she makes music, it's up to date. She's been around for almost 30 yrs but that should be a testament to her selling power and the way she remakes herself with each new album. She's a classic, IMO.
  7. I remember this, had no clue who sang this.
  8. These two songs are off Homogenic, Bjork's 4th album. It was recorded in 1997, amidst the suicide of her stalker, Ricardo Lopez. She moved to Spain to hide from the media and record this incredible album. Sounds like nothing you've ever heard before, from soft melodies to power orchestra. One of my favorite voices of all-time and I encourage anyone that enjoys versatile singers to listen to this pop-orchestra-electronic classic. It is a highly praised album, being called " one of the greatest electronic albums of all-time." Here are videos of two stand out songs on this album. Check out Bacholerette http://www.megavideo.com/?v=8ZOIPUWS d/l Bacholerette [44.4 mb] http://rapidshare.com/files/261357382/B-BA-HO-97.rar Check out Hunter [live version] http://www.megavideo.com/?v=A9BMXD3R d/l Hunter [16 mb] http://rapidshare.com/files/261385931/B-Hu-Ho.rar
  9. JJ Fad-Supersonic [1988] This is off their same named platinum debut album in 1988. It was on Eazy-E's label, Ruthless Records, and it was produced by ex-N.W.A. members, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, and Arabian Prince. They were the first female rap group to be nominated for a Grammy. I've never been a fan of these ladies for their rap skills left much to be desired and have always been intrigued by how successful this song was as I always thought it was run-of the-mill. They are currently planning a tour with the surviving members of The Fat Boys. Hope someone youtubes a piece of that tour as I would like to see what dance steps these ladies are doing 21 yrs after their song came out. check out the video http://www.megavideo.com/?v=UOAZHJ3W d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/256049058/YouT..._Supersonic.avi
  10. Bow Wow Wow-Do you wanna hold me [1983] This is their stand out hit off their 3rd album back in Feb. of 1983, When the going gets tough, the tough get going. This band was created by Malcolm McLaren, who previously managed the New York Dolls and the Sex Pistols. He somehow got all the entire band from Adam and the Ants to defect and join Bow Wow Wow instead and then adding to the group, 14 yr old, Annabella Lwin. They are considered pioneers of the new wave moment by some and thieves of melodies from Zulu jive songs and Zulu pop songs by others. Check out the video d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/252469606/dnm_28.rar
  11. Madonna-Justify my love [1990] The first single off the Immaculate Collection album and it went to reaching as high as #1 in some countries and #2 in several others. This song was composed by Lenny Kravitz, Madonna and one time Prince-protege, Ingrid Chavez. Kravitz kept Ingrid's name out of the credits and then had to pay a large out-of-court settlement as Ingrid had written the majority of this song. That added to the controversy of this single as it was one of the first videos to be banned from Mtv and subsequently became the highest selling video single of all time. A laid back track with seducing music and Madonna whispering and sighing the verses. check out the video http://www.megavideo.com/?v=I2JLWRFA d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/247609431/Mado...ed_Version_.mpg
  12. Inner City-Power of Passion [1989] This is off their first album, Paradise/Big Fun, in 1989. It had great success in the U.S., having 4 tracks that went to #1 on the dance charts. This is an excellent ballad that gets lost on this album because of classics like Big Fun and Good Life. I never heard it on the radio but it deserves to be shared and listened to. I did a homemade video to it so you guys can listen and enjoy it. listen to it
  13. Lee Ritenour-Is it you [1981] Here's a excellent smooth jazz/pop hit that went up to # 15 on the charts from a world renowned jazz guitar player who has over 30 albums, 17 grammy nominations-winning 1, has over 3000 studio sessions...This is off his 11th album, Rit. On vocals is Mr. Eric Tagg. check out the video http://www.vsocial.com/video/?d=259564 d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/237382617/Lee_...r-Is_it_you.flv
  14. Change-Hold Tight [1981] Off their second album, Miracles, here's a very good track that went to #40 on the R&B charts. Luther Vandross sang back up on this album, then took off for a solo career that we all know about. I can't find an original video so I made one up so people can at least listen to it. check out the video http://www.vsocial.com/video/?d=259155
  15. Very nice Dude, never heard that song before. But as i mentioned in the intro to the other video in this thread, you have to go back quite a few years to get classic duets.
  16. Nah, I like Donny's version better. A little faster.
  17. Donny Osmond-C'mon Marianne [1976] Remake of a Four Seasons song that originally went to # 9 on the charts in 1967 and 10 years later, Donny took it to # 25 on the pop charts. It can be found on Donny's "Disco Train" album or on his greatest hits compilation. Listen to it http://www.vsocial.com/video/?d=258030
  18. Patti Austin & James Ingram-Baby come to me [1983] This is R & B, classic soul. Artists just do not get down like this anymore, in my opinion. When/What was the last R&B duet that can be considered a classic? This can be found on each ones' greatest hits hits compilations. It went to # 1 in 1983 and remains in heavy rotation on any lite music station and around my house. check out the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbLaLSnH99o d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/224351562/Patt...abyComeToMe.avi
  19. Prince-Controversy [1981] Off his same titled 4th album, here's a definite classic from a true musical genius. It's an answer to the media who at that point was questioning his sexuality, religious beliefs, etc...At that point in time, I couldn't really appreciate him as I do now as I was a loyal Michael Jackson fan and back then there was always the who was the better dancer, singer...These days he has my total respect as a complete artist. check out the video http://www.vsocial.com/video/?d=51378 d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/222498359/Prin...Controversy.mpg
  20. Traks-Long Train Running [1983] Here's a group that had the metal look but they were actually a electronic/disco band. This is off their only [at least as far as I could find] and same titled LP. The original, of course, is a classic from the Doobie Brothers but I like this version better. The vocals are more to my liking and they funked it up so it reaches the dancing crowd as well. The singer in the video is Aax Donell but he's just a lip syncher. The real vocals are by band member, Douglas Meakin, who never made a public appearance with the band. Why?? No idea and there's very little info on the net about this short lived band. watch the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjRNLK4O3s4 d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/221898116/Trak...in___1983_.mpeg
  21. Cinderella-Heartbreak Station [1990] A fan favorite from this "metal" glam band off their same titled third album, which went gold in January 1991 and platinum in February. This album marked a change of direction in their music as they shifted towards a more blues type of style and losing quite a bit of fans along the way. watch the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3aZ3p1m1ow d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/219674956/Cind...eak_Station.mpg
  22. Mariah Carey-Love takes time [1990] Off her debut album in 1990, Mariah Carey, this was one of four singles to go to #1. It spent three weeks at #1, thankfully knocking off Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" off the top spot. watch it http://www.dailymotion.com/SirDroopy/video...eylovetakestime d/l the video http://rapidshare.com/files/219655527/Mari...Takes_Time.mpeg
  23. Alicia Myers-I want to thank you [1981] Off her debut solo album in 1981, here is, IMO, the funkiest gospel/soul tune ever. I still haven't heard someone sample that opening beat correctly in a rap song. Contagious beat, another track that stays in heavy rotation in the car/home/mp4. listen to it http://www.divshare.com/download/7033686-e8a
  24. Nice one dude, "Let's get down" is a decent track. They also have a classic ballad "Anniversary". Top notch stuff
  25. Devone-Energy [1995] Not much to say about this artist, he had a short lived career with maybe another song that made its way onto a house compilation, but this is an excellent house track and for those that need a song for the mp3 as you exercise, this is it. It's off the Mercury label, from 1995. listen to the track http://www.divshare.com/download/6932809-900
