Wang Chung ‎– Wake Up, Stop Dreaming (Holland 12″)

Released in 1985 and using that well-known sampled whistle sound (Piztwang) this is a bit of synth-fest with a hard synth bass and dramatic vocal delivery by Jack Hues. Assisted by David Motion on production this was from their soundtrack album, “To Live And Die In L.A.” and it appeared in this great film just before the car chase scene. Backed by a short instrumental, “Black-Blue-White” this blended a sequenced bass with guitar riffs.
