It's mildly upsetting that so many amazing funky Japanese tracks from the 80s didn't make it to the US until recently. So much good stuff!

Like almost all Burt Bacharach songs, any version of Lotta Love instantly lowers t he blood pressure.

Lotta Love, so end-of-disco era...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Krys O.:

Love Neil's original and Nicolette's cover and this remix rules.
Avatar 12:23pm still b/p:

Larson's Lotta Love was current when I was in college, and it would play on the Top 40 station over the stereo rigged up in the dorm bathroom. So I recall it with extra tiled-restroom reverb.

Michael Franks... Adult Contemporary Stalker
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Krys O.:

Michael Franks reminds me of junior high in the mid-70s.

Krys O: When Vex Ruffin was a guest on my show we talked about the Filipino love for Michael Franks for a few minutes!

What was the Christmas song on he Breakin' soundtrack? I can only remember the lines "GI Joe ain't GI shit" and "A Kung Fu grip that don't even work".
Avatar 12:50pm Duane:

Tim: CUTE!!That last track is Boogie's fave xmas tune right now. Are you talking about Treacherous 3-Xmas Rap?

Yeah, that's it Duane! Hahaha!

Boogie's got some christmas taste!

Nina Simone 4 ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm tim from champaign (now washington):

Nina Simone has always been pretty high up there for me but in 2020 she rose just about to the top.

Man, I haven't heard Treacherous 3 mentioned in a long while.

What a year, eh? Plenty of bad news, but good too. Good: Did you hear, they removed Robert E. Lee's statue from the Capitol building in DC just this past week? (Are ya thinking: what was it doing there in the first place? Me too.) Happy new year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm tim from champaign (now washington):

@Krys O - the sixth grade corner of my mind takes up way too much space currently. Including my sense of humor much to my chagrin.Stuff like a Treacherous Three song that cracked me up almost 40 years ago keeps surfacing - haha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm brycepunk1:

This Placebo track is so good!
  12:59pm JtotheK:

Placebo, nice! Still glad these got reissued for RSD. Hi Duane hi everyone. Seasonal greeting and all.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Krys O.:

When I was in high school in Port Chester, NY (circa 1978), some of my classmates would go to block parties in the Bronx, Mount Vernon, and New Rochelle and when they came back to school, they were rapping in the hallways. It was so cool.
  1:15pm Dizzy Diz:

Yes yes yes!!!
Shout out Duane and WFMU.
Happy holidays and long live both of youze!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm tim from champaign (now washington):

The drums and bass on this are going boogie woogie on my brain! (To borrow a phrase from Curtis in Up In Smoke).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm chris in the redwoods:

pre-clickied! (sucker for steel drums, here).
hi, Duane and fellow passengers. Best and warmest wishes to all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm tim from champaign (now washington):

That's so cool, Krys! Growing up in a suburbs of Michigan I felt lucky if some kid passed on a tape that they got from their cousin. I was lucky enough to hear the Electrifying Mojo on the radio when I'd go visit my cousin who lived airwave range of Detroit.
  1:24pm John in Bklyn:

Was that the Grace Jones tune?
Avatar 1:27pm Duane:

John: Yes it was

The drum intro to I Want To Be Free has to be the best ever intro in the history of recorded music.
Avatar 2:32pm NikiA:

@Tim, I'm immediately like: Alexa, play I Want To Be Free
Avatar 2:33pm Duane:

tim" All of the drum breaks on "Free". I also love his performance on "Angel"..much less all the live footage/recordings
