Suckers stare but I don’t care

Lots of bleeps and beats and washing machine rhythms today with not too many vocals or words spoken. Starting off with the funk, then delving into the techno, a hip hop interlude, and then finishing off with the mellow and melancholic.

Like a two-edged sword, he touched you and it stabs me.

Wow. Those keytars just keep turning up. After getting a few Goldie Lookin Chain earworms recently I endeavoured to track down the source samples for their hits “Your Mother’s Got a Penis” and “Soapbar.” For that tenuous reason Greg Phillinganes and ‘Sweet’ Charles Sherrell appeared in the mix this week.

You’d better stop this playing on my mind

Michael Fortunati aka Pierre Michel Nigro

Michael Fortunati aka Pierre Michel Nigro

It started as an earworm. That 1987 Kylie Minogue hit “I Heard A Rumour”. Except it wasn’t. It was Bananarama. So down the rabbit hole we went to listen to Bananarama hits and that’s how we stumbled across Michael Fortunati and his 1986 hit “Give Me Up”.

WHY. DID. WE. NOT. KNOW. ABOUT. THIS?
It’s Italo Disco Euro Beat keytar gold.
You can even smell the Kouros.
