Billy Ocean ‎– Loverboy (US 12″)

Funky with a hint of metal/rock. A bit of an overlooked track in the Ocean catalogue and just as strong as other stuff 9It even has the similar bassline to the Genesis track , “Land Of Confusion” or Propaganda’s “Dr. Mabuse”). Samplers were certainly making an impact on the ’84 production/sound. It’s probably the “Mix of the Month” for January

Probably the finest (and most expensive) producers and engineers were used (John “Mutt” Lange, Brian “Chuck” New, Nigel Green and Keith Diamond , who also had writing credits)

A Loverboy (Extended Club Remix) 8:08
