    Seems that Sunscream - Perfect Motion (Boys Own Mix) samples or is based on one of the melodies in "The Real Life".

      Not mentioned in the notes, but there is also a small passage in The Real Life that samples "Key West" by Kasso.

        Only the OPPY MIX has the Scarface samples. Can be found on the SIDE B of "SO WHERE ARE YOU" CORPORATION OF ONE.

          A fantastic 80's electro track, massively based on Simple Minds cracking early 80's instrumental anthem 'Theme For Great Cities'. It also has samples thrown in from the likes of Queen and even Al Pacino stars on it with some vocals from Scarface!!! Its a real bouncy track, guaranteed to have everybody giving it the large one on the dancefloor once that beat kicks in. One of my favourite dance tracks from the 80's.
