Great song certainly better than Laura Branigan's effort. I love the rap at the end -- it doesn't sound like Riefoli though. Too bad there isn't a legit remix of this -- maybe in of those Italo Disco comps.

I'm really impressed by this recording.
I don't know what the engineers did different compared to the others during that time but the record - especially when you play it from the 12" vinyl - sounds super clear, loud and just perfect. Every element has it's spot in the mix and it's perfectly balanced.
Of course I don't need to mention that the track's just a bangin' tune music wise.
I will listen to it for ever.

My mum was a synth pop and disco addict, so i was brought up with this track. I still remember listening to it on trips out in our Ford Granada when it was newly released in 1983! And up until about a week ago i was certain this was sung by a female (and i'm talking about the Laura Brannigan version either). His voice has a very distinctive soft note. A total surprise when i saw the music video! Such a lovely track, full of memories and melodies. Good danceable italo club music.
