Robbie Dupree - "Steal Away"

Rupert Holme - "Escape" (The Pina Colada Song)

Also this one. http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=81269

Thrust - "Can't Wait To Get To You" Apexton Records US 1982.

This track used to annihilate my dancefloors. It also had Main/Inst/bonus beats/sound effects so it was always fun to jazz it up live.

It had this great sound effect of a train hurtling from left to right over the dancefloor!

Two good ones Paul. I loved them both. That PINA COLADA song always left me cracking up. It easily could have really happened. And more so today with the internet!

What about "TAKE A CHANCE" & "STOP PLAYING WITH ME".

They didn't make #1 but they jammed!
I think her name was Vikki Love.

John Paul Young had many hits,most of them reaching the top of the pop charts in Australia at least.
Other hits I can remember are......
"The Day That My Heart Caught Fire"/"Standing In The Rain"/"Yesterdays hero"/"I Hate The Music"/"Pasadena".

Defranco Family (Feat. Little Tony Defranco) - "Heartbeat, Its a Lovebeat" From 1973.

This was a club hit in Australia due to heavy radio play.
Was it played in clubs overseas?
It's cheesy as all hell but I must admit I did love it when it came out.

Little Tony Defranco certainly had the moves..... :lol:
