        As with the Shannon records, not sure why Barbosa & Liggett did not give Robbie Kilgore co-production credit. He played/programmed ALL the instruments after all.

          Aphex Twin samples this 'dub version' intro in his track: 1st 44 at 1:12 minute marker.

            Uses a very similar bassline to the remix of Shannon's "Let the Music Play".

                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.
