Vetrina Di Hit Parade

Back after a god knows how long offline period with a promise. And a hit. Ofcourse everybody in the multiverse knows it but how about this version by The Droogs (if I remember right)? The tune is taken from Vetrina Di Hit Parade Vol.10 and the sleeve doesn’t offer any artist info. In any case, you know what you should do until your soles glow like mine. It’s saturday!

One More Mission (Another Version)

Quinn Martin – One More Mission (Another Version)

No hope I’m afraid, I know we can’t be saved, No peace in my mind, Till I find what’s behind. Just one more mission.

As some of my 11 fans already know, I’ve a very soft spot for Italo. This relatively rare 12″ cover version of the Rockets classic touches the all right spots with dark lyrics and bounding bass. In the picture decaying remains of club Ultimo Impero in Airasca, Italy.

Lõpulaul

laineLaine – Lõpulaul

Fashionably late entry from Estraadiansambel Laine. Apparently it was recorded already in 1980 judging from a TV apperance where they walked on music in the sunset. To my knowledge the vinyl version materialized in ’83. Easy to find in Estonia and not that difficult in Finland either. And yes, despite being a cover version of one of the most overplayed disco classics, I would dare to play it in public.

Played this at -8 on Friday. Familiar melody with pounding bass and insanely loud effects caused a few curios questions.

All Along The Watchtower

panopticonBuffalo – All Along The Watchtower

Some people have an obsession to sing-along when dancing. Nothing wrong with that if your main focus is on the beat. You can drown yourself in the rhizome of the lyrics later in the night.

Lluvia De Primavera

volvopvJavier Zavala – Lluvia De Primavera

The mailman brought some hope that the spring might be coming after all. I once almost bought a Volvo 544 “sport”, but luckily came to my senses avoiding such a sensible choice.

Syy täysikuun

29897659385699Marion – Syy täysikuun

Nothing compares to U, but this is not that bad or is it just that bad? Should I just blame it on the moon for posting a Finnish version? Lyrics are about the mysterious and irresistible effects full moon can have to your mind and body (Finland, 1977).
