Yello – Unbelievable (Theme From “Ford Fairlane”) (US 12″)

Got it and posted it many, many moons ago…..but thanks Mike for sharing it again.

The sample that was pinched to make EMF’s “Unbelievable” such a chart hit. This is Yello having great fun by sampling sound bites from the film and turning it into a saucy dance floor monster. With David Morales on the remix and Eric Kupper and Satoshi Tomite on Keyboards, I remember playing it at my mates Woody London pad on his DJ set-up, it did sound “Un-fucking Believable” The Boris Blank original mix was quite lightweight compared to these mixes.  All six mixes have something different to offer too with 909 percussion and acid squelches.

    1. Ray,
      Since my change to a RAW version I do have them in FLAC (Only).
      By request only I will drop the FLAC version.

      1. You heard him….I think I have about 5 FLAC files out of several thousand music files. Can’t get into it.

      2. Hi Mike B and djjedredy,
        Sorry for the delayed reply, been offline and catching up.
        I would appreciate “Unbelievable” in FLAC when time permits and maybe the other 5 that may be available.
        Great site.
        Respect and keep up the great work.
        Warm Regards
