Capturing everything that made Italo Disco so special, fun and accessible, "On The Beach Tonight" is an irresistible piece of euphoria that cannot help but raise a smile!

At first the high pitched vocals appear to be a joke, but they soon make sense. The main vocalist emerges, and she sounds like Kim Wilde which is no bad thing. Musically we have a thick, rolling electro bassline under a very strong synth melody typical of mid-80's Italo Disco.

The rhythm section is particularly innovative for Italo, eschewing straight 4/4 for a breakbeat style that really freshens up an already alert track.

Some will dismiss this as throwaway cheesy europop, but they can have their opinion.

Personally, I appreciate this track for what it is: Brilliant.
