Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus" is neat with tricks and sounds that please.  Blind Date sings "Your Heart Keeps Burning."

Falco rose to international notoriety a year and a half ago with "Der Kommisar."  He's back again with another multinational hit called "Rock Me Amadeus", on GIG/Teldec in West Germany with releases around the world now being lined up.  With elements of "19", Falco relates the life and times of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in today's musical terms.  Bolland produced, Falco directed.  Special Disconet loads the front with instrumental riffs for a few minutes.

Blind Date is next with "Your Heart Keeps Burning" from their Ariola 12".  Enno Reiss produced this delightful little ditty which is clean and simple, with singing that answers and is pleasant to tap your toes to.  The group features Amy Goff, Elaine Goff and Uwe Schlurmann on vocals, Matthias Baumgardt on guitar, and Peter Koch with percussion and drums, and is based in Frankfurt, West Germany.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 19:00, from 90 BPM to 113 BPM.

ABC's "Vanity Kills" get remixed by José "Animal" Diaz.  Meri D. Marshall gets obsessed with "My Obsession."

ABC made their U.S. debut with "The Look Of Love" a few summers ago on Disconet, and their Neutron/PolyGram album with "Vanity Kills" should be coming here soon.  José "Animal" Diaz has done an excellent re-edit of Julian Mendelsohn's excellent remix of the song, written and produced by Mark White and Martin Fry.  It has bounce and a few of those famous A-N-I-M-A-L-! loops which make for hot action on the dance floor.

Meri D. Marshall is next with her rather brilliant "My Obsession" from WEA Musik in West Germany.  Meri D. is from the Big D (Dallas, TX you all), and Bob Parr produced, arranged and co-wrote the song with Carol Parks in the U.S.A., which will probably be the last territory to go on it!  What irony… it has that same excitement that "Rough Diamond" by Madleen Kane presented, and a really fresh feeling to otherwise overly done and re-done dance music which is often all too tired and wornout today.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 13:57, at 126 BPM.

The classic Raul "Don't You Want Me" remix of The Human League still sounds like the #1 hit it was.

The Human League's "Don't You Want Me" was the hot import of late 1981 and finally hit big in the U.S. via A&M with its early 1982 release.  Raul's special Disconet version made it a club classic, and we're pleased to present this special encore performance due to your overwhelmingly favorable requests to get the League again.

Martin Rushent produced the song, which was available in several forms from the UK.  Raul combined the vocal and instrumental versions, and the rest was history.

"Do Or Die", another cut from their Virgin album, segues right out of "Want Me", and by itself, may have been quite a song as well… nice rhumba feeling!

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 15:34, from 120 to 123 BPM.

Julie Coulson's "Big Time Operator" gets bigger!  Junior Perrault remixes Rainey's " I Can Fly" and now it really takes off!

Julie Coulson starts out this Disconet set with a great dance song written and produced by Bill Jessop called "Big Time Operator."  The Creole/Ecstasy U.K. 12" has been edited and extended to be even more exciting for you.

Rainey is next with "I Can Fly" from the Mercury "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" soundtrack LP.  The song was great, but on the short side… so Junior Perrault of New York City gave it a very smooooth extension.  Bob Summers, Don Perry and Jay Levy produced the LP version.  Junior is a professional carpenter by day, and gets some DJing gigs around town and via musical tapes he creates for a few very in stores and boutiques.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 12:34 from 132 BPM (beats per minute) to 139.
