A record that I keep coming back to - first heard this when it was included on the Electro 2 LP back in the early 80's and still love it to this day. If you're into the original Electro scene - Check this track out.

The programming on this track is uplifting. When Lisa Fisher screams, "love is happiness.. love is tenderness... love is huggin' and kissin'..." it makes it a little too embarrassingly *precious* to play out, but if you got the guts to do it.. the more power to you and I give you great respect. I, myself, would try a beat juggle over the singing to warble the lyrics here.

If you happen to be playing an italo party this will set your mix on fire. the slow breakyness makes it great for booty dancing-- it is not a true 4/4. The dub side is sparser and is layered with scratch sampling.
