Ballad For Space Lovers

32 years later it's relevant again... (No, I'm not that old... maybe Ray... hahahahaha). I love how it says "Instrumental Hit" and 7 bonus tracks. It's a single with seven b-sides!

This is one of those songs that just instantly feels familiar. Maybe it is because living in Miami disco lingered here a bit longer in the 80's than it did in other places? So I caught it during my formative years and it just stuck? (too many question marks) What I find surprising is that with people's penchant for everything "retro", disco is having a harder time coming back than it should. It guess it's not "Kung Fu Fighting"-"Hustle" disco.

Space - Magic Fly

Go to Castles In Space for a 1985 remix by Flood, real name Mark Ellis.

Heard of him? He produce of couple of artists.... you know... Depeche Mode, U2, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Nine Inch Nails, The Jesus And Mary Chain, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Sound, Erasure, Curve, Nitzer Ebb, The Killers, Sigur Rós and PJ Harvey... No biggie.

I'll forgive him for producing 30 Seconds to Mars' new album. (Side note, how much money did 30 Seconds pay to get onto Guitar Hero? And arent' their 30 Seconds up already? Really Jared Leto? Really?)

MP3: Magic Fly (ysi)
