Q-Feel – Dancing In Heaven (Orbital Be-Bop) (US 12″)

Pure 80’s Pop now from a tune that passed me by back in the day. Pseudo synthpop sounding a tad commercial for these old ears but it does still have a synth hook. (Dollar, Bucks Fizz via Buggles anyone ?) Can’t believe they were from the UK and this particular track was an entry for Song For Europe in 1982! (Bardo won it!) Featuring on the film soundtrack for “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” in 1985, the US label Jive re-released this collection of original and new remixes in 1989. The “G.Z.Edit” is a the pick of the original mixes. The B-side “At The Top (All The Way St. Tropez)” is included, all early 80’s New Wave shiny-ness, with the theme of fashion and glamour.  (EEEEEK those Lyrics!)

Fronted by Martin Page (Ex- Tight Fit who did “The Lion Sleeps Tonight and looking like Timmy Mallet’s best mate via LazyTown on the video) and Brian Fairweather (who later did a lot with Earth,Wind & Fire). With Trevor Thornton (who went on to drum with Prog Rockers, Asia) and keyboard player, Chris Richardson.  On the 7 track,  Maxi 12” we get a long acid tinged remix (Dance Till You Drop) , a weird blend of old style guitar new wave and an acid bassline remixed Paul Schroeder and Mark Sayfritz. American DJ, Mr Lee, gives it a bit of piano house workover with his remixes, the instrumental being really Lee’s own house track, pumping for 1989. Thanks Mike B!
