and the bad news... The good news are that I updated list of remakes with
many songs. It really surprised me, I always find more and more of it.
The bad news is that you can't listen to it on the page yet. I'll upload
those songs later...
video interviews online - Scotch & Joe
Yellow!!! Check it up at link Interviews
> Video interviews.
(and originals) is finally near to be kind of complited. Now you can listen
to almost all of songs that are mentioned there, only one is missing since
I don't have it and it is Kuwait - Popcorn.
If you have mp3, feel free to share it and I'll upload that one too. :)
List is updated from time to time without writing here about it, so check
it up from time to time if you're interested in this subject...
improvement on this site! I always had an idea to put all of songs into
one player and now we on the way to do it! So far you can click mp3 links
on pages: MP3 Samples > HTML5 Player & download,
Top 20 and Identify
and you'll be able to listen to them by the player on the bottom of this
site. Also all of mp3s from various pages are included in player's playlist
so it's another way to run them. Eventually all of music will be played
by that one player on the bottom! I wouldn't be able to implement this
without help of my great friend, so THAAAAAAANK
I got MP3 player to work as I wanted, thanks to my friends Kreso
and Vedran! Now you can click "show/hide
playlist" inside of a player and than the magic happens :)
This was not an easy task to implement, but with a little help everything
is possible. This player is important for this site since you have a chance
to listen to music collection as soon as you enter. I hope to surprise
you a bit more in the future...
Croatian Italo Disco Party - 19.9.2015.
books about Italo Disco!
The History Of Italo Disco and Italo
Disco Story. It's the same book, the first one is in English
and the second one in Italian... The author is Francesco
Cataldo Verrina, there is a bunch of interesting stuff to read...
You can find it on page eBooks. There is
free part of books for you to read and if you liked it, there is also
a link to a store where you can buy it. BTW whole page on this site with
books is slightly redisigned...
Star albums added on BRAVO link - both of them about Kim Wilde.
German magazine BRAVO (you
can't buy scans here) from 80's? We used to read(?) it and we found
first information and pics about Italo music. I saved some material, so
here it is. I'll be adding more material from time to time. If you were
also in contact with that magazine, I think that it will be a pleasn't
experience to remember it after all of these years. They didn't have much
material on Italo, but what they did have, I present you. If you have
something that I don't, feel free to send it to me ;) So in main menu
look for the link BRAVO.
an ad for 13. Cro italo Disco party.
can use new mp3 html5 player properly, buttons are working as they should
be! And why I made it? Some visitors didn't want to have Flash player
installed so they couldn't load my mp3 Flash player. I understand them,
Flash technology is something to be avoided. HTML5 is a native html player,
meaning you don't have to install anything in order to load it. Another
reason is because I wanted you to have a player with Italo songs from
80's at first page.
we go with a new player on site. It's a HTML5 player
(based on SoundManager2), so there is no need for flash anymore (yet,
you can still use it, page MP3 Samples). You can also find small menu
that was on first page so far on the page MP3 Samples. So, this was a
bit complicated to do, but it works now (not yet as I would like it to).
So on main page you have a picure that you have to click in order to
load player. That is because player consists of 0,5 MB and that would
be too much for some of you to load each time (I guess so). So look at
that picture at the bottom. There are bottons to play/pause,
volume control, go back, go forward, open/close playlist. Remember
their position since you will not see them in the player (server problems,
ah...). I hope to solve this problem in the future. You have a little
pic of those buttons on the left.
So you have loaded player. At the left of it there are two links: OPEN
and CLOSE playlist. When you click OPEN,
playlist will be shown. So click wanted song and listen to it. If you
want to close playlist, click link CLOSE.
I hope to have those options in the player in the future. That's it so
far, I'll be making it better in the future. Enjoy it! :)
IF YOU KNOW HOW TO PROGRAM IN HTML,
LET ME KNOW. I COULD USE SOME HELP TO LINK ALL OF SONGS ON THE SITE WITH
THIS PLAYER WHEN ANY MP3 LINK ON THE SITE IS CLICKED. I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE
SO FAR ABOUT IT, SO I LEFT A SMALL PLEYER ON THE LEFT TOO - TO PLAY SONGS
FROM MP3 LINKS. IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER IDEA ABOUT THIS, SUCH AS A HELP
OR SUGGESTION, SEND ME E-MAIL...
added - big Italo Disco concert in Brescia,
Italy - 7.5.2016!
player added. Actually player is a part of your browser so each browser
has a bit different player. Under the main menu on the left side you should
always be able see red letters PLAYER. If
you don't see it, click refresh in your browser or press F5
key. Or restart browser. There are several pages on this site with
mp3 music, so please go to the each page with music and press F5 (pages
with flash player don't have anything to do with this HTML5 player). You
can test it on this page. So now when you click link to some song, player
under the menu should play it. If it doesn't play, but new tab opens -
you forgot to press F5 key in order to refresh it - to load a new version
of page. I'm still testing that player so it doesn't look nice, but I
think that I'll be able to make a proper one in the future... When you
don't need it anymore, above the player you have link [Close].
Click it in order to close this player.
New movie uploaded: Agnetha:
ABBA & After . You can find it on page Movie > Movies
about Disco music. Soon I'll upload more movies about Abba. Also did
some visual changes on various pages...
New page is online now.
I was wondering how many songs in Italo Disco and High Energy are covers
of some other songs, so I started searching for some data. Result of it
you can find on page "Remakes".
You can listen to all those songs in player built in Firefox, Chrome and
Opera. There might be some mistake in collected data, so if you find some,
let me know. Also you can tell me if you know some other songs that I
didn't put on the page so far... Enjoy listening and discovering connection
between Italo, Hi-NRG and other musical genres :)
Hello my friends, best
whishes to all of you and your families!!! We start this year in a best
possible way - read interview with great Hi NRG
composer - Bobby Orlando!!!
Pages will be redesigned,
but only a bit. So far only a few of them, still testing... I also repaired
mail forms on pages Guestbook and Identify. It hasn't been working for
some longer time and I didn't know about it. Now it's working fine.
Added a few more pages
in menu. Yet, I haven't finished them, so you'll have to wait for some
time to check them up. Also some new colour style in a menu. It has been
the same for years now, so it deserved a bit of refreshment. :)

Last few years I was updating
this site only with new music and the rest of the site was "frozen"
for a long time. I decided to refresh and upgrade all of it. As a first
change I removed Chat page since it was useless
and now I'm introducing Forums page. There
are a few forums in different languages listed there so I hope that you'll
find the one that you're gonna like and use. I didn't recreate my forum
since I have no time to be admin there.

It is my pleasure to announce
that today this site has been online for 14
years, it all started back in 1998. because I was unhappy
with sites devoted to Italo Disco at the time. There were just a few of
them with not many of content to read, so I decided to make a site myself
and to build it with all that I would like to see and to read. So here
we are after 14 years! I hope that you'll keep on visiting and I hope
that I'll have some more time to regularly update it with new stuff. If
you have a suggestion how to improve it, feel free to send me e-mail to

Big Italo revival night in Greece in
legendary disco club Barbarella (29.12.2010).
Two more songs added, they are free FREE
to download - your Christmas gift. One is a new one - Galactic
Warriors - Space Patrol Orion. Here is their info: Max
is Croatian, 36, and he lives in Germany. He heard
on the radio some Italo Disco songs that he liked tremendously and so
it all started. He was mostly fascinated by Koto & Laserdance. For
years he was working as a D.J., collecting Italo Disco records, and the
late nineties he started producing music. He used an Amiga 1200 with MusicX
and OctaMed software and played on a Roland Alpha Juno1, but sounds were
not good so it all boiled down to just a hobby. A month ago him and his
longtime friend Kruno started
a new project named Galactic Warriors.
Kruno is 41, he lives in Croatia and also composes Space Music. Via Skype
they exchanged informations and opinions, and soon there was the first
song named Space Patrol Orion.
Now they are working on another song and they aim to make the entire album.
(as a hardware) use CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1055T BOX, Roland Juno-106, Roland
JV-80 with expansion board VINTAGE SYNTH, Numark DM 1775A Digital Sampler,
JBL Control 5, AKG K-240, Sennheiser MKH405, software: Fruity Loops 9.0,
VSTi and SoundFonts. http://www.myspace.com/548622294,
Another single is by Night Fox - Endless Night.
It's not new, but it is kind of unknown, so here it is!
of Silent Circle. And retrospective album
named 25 Years - An Anniversary Album. Among
others there are two unpublished songs. One of them is Italo - Don't
Ask Me Why, and other is not. Also there is DJ
Special Mix from 90's and I published it too. Their older songs
you can find in 80's section.
Feat. Marisa Machado - Wet Dreams in two versions added. I can't
find any information where to buy it, so I guess that it's free. Available
to download here. It's a very nice song!
New record by Clay
Pedrini. One song is named Ocean and
the other one Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde -
sounds familiar, doesn't it? :) I present you three versions of Ocean.
First version is original and in my opinion it is the best one (if you
ignore guitars), and other two are not that dynamic, but they are OK.
It's nice to see that Clay is active after so many years. He also had
a live performace recently...
And a small note - I removed two links from main menu (MP3 Samples and
2K Italo Disco) and they are now at the bottom of main page. It should
be easier to find mp3 players, download samples and find recent Italo
production this way... Also there is Chat page now on the main menu instead
of Forum. I'm not sure why, but Forum is now disabled... Maybe in the
future I'll link some other forum there...
more singles presented here! Released in 2005, 2007 and 2010. I recently
discovered Russian ex band Night Fox. You
can enjoy their beautiful song Tears Of Love
and two more - I Can't Live Without You and
Only Love. All of them FREE
to download! It's really hard to find some info on them, I found something
only at Russian forums. Bodies Without Organs (BWO)
released Sunshine In The Rain even in 2005!
I had no idea. Original version is an average Eurodance song, but Tobias
Bernstrup made Italo Disco version. And that one is excellent!
It's enough to say that when I listen to my mp3-player during the rainy
days, it always makes me smile. It's full of positive energy, check out
video too, it's interesting because it's kind of weird... BTW, I have
to play this song (with video) to my 2 year old daughter every morning,
before I go to work. Nina is really hooked on it :) And the last one released
a few days ago is Mirko Hirsch - Turn Me On.
It's taken from his forthcoming album Obsession
and it's FREE just for you!
more FREE Siberian
Heat release! Songs are named In Your City
and Angel's Heart. In
Your City enters my top five for 2010! FYI, members of Siberian
Heat are composer Vitaly Polozov and our
Russian disco queen Elen Cora as a singer.
If you like their songs, you might consider a small (or bigger :)) donation
since they have to pay for studio expences and afterwards share their
work for free. Group's homepage is http://siberianheat.ucoz.ru
is a page for donation (link copied from their site). And here are
maxi single by Elen Cora - Tightrope Dancer
and No Less No More. Again, it's a FREE
one! Enjoy it!

Heat added for you to download! P-E-R-F-E-C-T song!!!

and I have no idea when will it be published. This one is major-hit for
me!!! Just listen to it and enjoy. Bravo Andy!!! Finally one song with
old effects - voice sampling like in Working Girl or Who's Your Boyfriend.
Seems like Bobby O style :)
The other record is Dario - All The Night.
Song is made in Time Records style and everything is fine but to me it's
boring, melody is not exciting at all. Maybe you'll like it more...
I'm going to seaside for three weeks so no updates during that period...
Added full samples of Eddy Huntington - Love For
uploaded Latin Lover - Casanova Action.
those two records that I mentioned before are released. So now you have
a chance to buy Andy Romano - Run To Love/Stay With
You and Squash Gang - When I Close My Eyes/Tell
news for you guys who wanted to go to the Italo concert in France. They
sold only about 20 tickets in advance so it was better to give up... And
a hint for you who live close to Hungary - after summer there will be
Italo concert, but more about it next time... And naturally - new video
uploaded Jessica - Like A Burning Star.
video uploaded Hazell Dean - Who's Leaving
new song by Eddy Huntington - Love for Russia

Oliva named Rose of Tokyo with his

you can listen to Stage - I Can't Get You Out Of
My Mind. Another High Energy hit by Andy
Romano - Run To Love. It is not published yet and I have no idea
where and when it will be published. So be patient since it is great song!
And the last one. Recently I received e-mail from singer named Bimbo
Boy with link to his latest song Boy Loves
Boy so here it is. There are three version, but I published the
one that has Italo sound - Vision Talk Remix.
Lyrics are like sequel of Hey Hey Guy...
new records with well known singers for I Venti Records and Delivery Records:
Eddy Huntington - Eddy Huntington – Love for
Russia/Love and Stage - I Can't Get You Out
Of My Mind. You can listen to Stage, and you'll have to wait for

Is The Light? for DWA records. He sent me a message:
friend, it is old style Italo Disco but with some new sound. Great site
! thank you !
Let's hope that it will sound fine...
stuff again! Finally we have a chance to get new maxi by Riccardo
Campa - already released Desperado
on Flashback Vol. 2 CD and one nice new song Casanova.
There is also new album by Vision Talk named
Dirty Italo Disco. Why ditry? Because the
style is not pure Italo. The sound is nice but other stuff... Listen for
yourself, you might like it. And new crazy video Scotch
- Disco Band.
Italo gang, here is something that you haven't been expecting I guess.
Soon you'll be able to get a new maxi by Squash
Gang!!! Recently they had a concert in Spain (with other Italo
artists from Spain) so maybe that was inspiration for new songs... So
here we have two short samples. When I Close My
Eyes is simply masterpiece, great! And Tell
Me Why is good song but just like many others... And new nice song
by Andy Romano - Stay With You. I don't know
yet when will it be published, I gotta ask him and then I'll let you know...
Enjoy new Italo music! And new video uploaded Martinelli
video to download - Laskoviy May - Belye Rozy.
And just a small note for those who want to buy new Ken Laszlo because
of Hey Hey Guy '83. This version is copied
from Sandro Oliva's old tape and it wasn't edited nowdays in studio. It
sounds like they even didn't do normalization. Weird! So the quality is...
You can imagine... Not perfect as it was supposed to be!!! And yet good
for tape twenty years old... And quality of A side could have been better.
It's not that bad as B side, but there is something wrong too...
a new gift for you! Elen Cora has new maxi
with two songs Over Time and This
Love (Is More Than A Feeling). Listen to the music in Over Time,
it's perfect, like Farina's production. This is great maxi, and you'll
get it agin for free thanks to Elen! Now we wait for her LP with group
Siberian Heat. I heared one song so far named
Sorry and I can tell you that you will not
be dissapointed :) It's perfect!
video to download - Fred Ventura - The Years (Live).
Fixed download link for video Lee Marrow - Sayonara.
video to download - Savage - Only You.
video to download - Lucia - Marinero (Live Jlb Studio
Another video to download - Silent
Circle - Stop The Rain (Formel Eins). Added full duration samples
of Ken Laszlo's songs.
awesome song by Ken Laszlo - Dancing Forever!!!
Listen to the lyrics, it is similar to Peter's last song, it also talks
about Italo fans, but this is not nostalgic but happy song. It's really
interesting song, I didn't like it when I heared it for the first time,
but I kept on listening and after six times it became really great! It's
nice to hear this old, familiar voice :). B side is Hey Hey Guy from 1983!
This sounds really older than version from 1984. Nice surprise! And new
video to download Sister Sister - Blue Night In
video to download Savage - Don't Cry Tonight.
Italo song by new Italo label - Dreamtrack
Diamond Sound. Song Meltdown is not what you would expect, meaning,
it's kind of modern version of Italo Disco production. Very nice, I can't
get it out of my head :) And Holdin' Out is classical song. I think that
you'll like it too... And a few words to you from producers of this maxi:
Dreamtrak - Based in North London in the UK, The
label is run by a dedicated team of Italo Disco fans. We also run a recording
studio and hold a monthly Synthesizer dance party called "Dreamtrak
Diamond Nights". "Meltdown/Holdin' Out" is the first Dreamtrak
release, recorded and mixed in house at Dreamtrak Studios. Hopefully we
will be putting out further Italo influenced tracks on the back of this
Loveland - From Centocelle, Rome. Valerio was discovered performing in
a nightclub by the Dreamtrak team. The team thought he would be perfect
for the tracks Holdin' Out and Meltdown and invited him over to London
to sing on them. When in the studio the team and Valerio all realised
this was going to be a great record. We are currently trying to get Valerio
back over to London for some performances!
now something special for you: I hope that all of you so far found out
about new song by Peter Arcade named Italo
This song is very special not only because of great music but also because
of unique lyrics. So I asked Peter to write a few words for you since
this song is devoted to you - all of Italo Disco fans - the best people
that you can meet according to my experience. So Peter wrote following:
starting point is that, as you know, we have thousands of italo hits talking
about sentimental stories that all the fans (that i prefer to call "believers"
and "daydreamers") used and still listen to, so I wanted, for
once, to compose a song talking about them, and the style itself; that
is talking also about me, 'cause i had the luck to be on both sides as
a fan and, later, as an artist. :-) A song that describes the moments
of those that were teenagers during the original "golden age"
(in the 80es) and that are still here, after more than 25 years, sharing
the same sensations; that tells how "believers" and the "storytellers"
(the artists) are stars of the same sky. The lyrics of "Italo disco"
themselve explains it all:
we are, once again
All together, in our magical dreams, we believe
That it won’t be over
From every part, of the world
We are all united –
Italo disco is playing louder
our eyes, there’s the sight
Of the sunny seasons, and our heart plays the beat
Of forgotten feelings,
No, they don’t know, what it means
An eternal promise –
They’ll never know what it means to love one
we feel lonely
A song will bring back every single face – every single place!
We are the only
We are the children from another time
From the outer space
As the record starts to spin
You can feel the shivers
Cause the sound gets deep within
When the strobo starts to blink
You move in slow motion
Though your memories come back fast
Italo disco emotions!
Listening to – sentimental music
Romantic words, poems that rhyme
Time passing by, but somehow
We are still teenagers
Holding each other as on our first date
To the sea, to the thundering ocean
Hoping for someone to come
But it never happens
So you just write on the sand, wishing they could read it
“I love you” but the tide quickly wipes it
start to party
And one more time, release our energy
Let the future be
This is our message
Just living life in perfect harmony
With the melody
As the record starts to spin
You can feel the shivers
Cause the sound gets deep within
When the strobo starts to blink
You move in slow motion
Though your memories come back fast
Italo disco emotions!
the record starts to spin
You spin on the dancefloor
And the sound gets deep within
But you still ask for more
When the melody begins
Then you catch the fever
So you know one thing for sure
You will live forever!
will also find, on the backsleeve of the record, the following personal
dedication that expresses the concept:
THAN A STYLE, ITALO DISCO HAS BEEN A MAGICAL, MUSICAL DREAM MADE OF FEELINGS
AND PLAYED BY THE SOULS OF ROMANTIC AND AGELESS TEENAGERS THAT BELIEVED,
FOREVER, IN ETERNAL LOVE; THIS RECORD IS DEDICATED TO ALL THOSE "DREAMERS"
Best regards, Peter Arcade

CD by Fred Ventura is out! Actually for some
time... It consists of some of his old songs in combination with new ones
made in cooperation with other artists. Some of the songs were already
presented here, and someare here for the first time. New interesting song
is I'm Not Ready. When I heared it, I was
confused - is it Fred or Bobby O?! Yes, it's
Fred but using Bobby O style. Since Fred said that he is big Bobby O fan,
this shouldn't be surprise. I can hear elements from at least three songs
by Bobby O in this one - She Has A Way, Shoot Your Shot, Calling All Boys...
Very nice, maybe refrain melody might be a bit more interesting. Other
new songs are City Of Destiny and I Cut My Heart Out. City
Of Destiny is unusually happy for Fred. I didn't expect it, his
style is more sadish so this is something new. And I
Cut My Heart Out. I Cut This Song Out. You can forget about this
one, I suppose that this one was CD filler, it lasts for 8.48. Silence
would have been much better choice...

We didn't have to wait for
a long time to hear new maxi by (now known to you) Elen
Cora. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check her previous
single. This time she has two songs for us in several versions. And yes,
again you got her music for FREE,
great, thanks Elen!!! Call Me is very catchy
song, nice vocal and nice production. Sleeping In
Your Hands is based on low tempo Space Disco sound. And again there
is very nice melody. This time I wanted to inform you a bit more about
her work, so here it is. Do your homework and read it :)
Elen Cora was born on february
2nd 1985. in beautiful SIBERIAN city - Krasnoyarsk (RUSSIA) as Elena Korennykh
Valentinovna to her parents Galina and Valentin Korennykh. She has one
brother - Alexei Korennykh, who lives in America (San-Francisco). First
song was written by Elen (alias Elen Cora) when she was 11 years old.
She took vocal lessons when she was 14. After school her parents told
that she has to go to the UNIVERSITY, but after 4 semesters she left highschool
and all her time was devoted to the MUSIC!!! Almost all of songs by Elen
are in English because her favourite artists are Modern Talking, C.C.Catch,
Sandra, Enigma... She was listening to their songs and her dream was to
sing like Sandra and C.C.Catch... To sing in English and to be so famous
like they are... But what we are talking about... oh, naturally... Elen
gave the concerts, wrote her own songs and sang in bands where she was
lead-singer. It's all what she wanted from her life!!! First group where
she sang was named ECLIPSE, it was just the beginning. There were two
girls. But the passion to grow was too strong and after one demo album
she started singing in more successful project Non-stop, incl. again 2
persons - Elen Cora and Victor Nezamaev. During this time Elen also took
part in club project Kids of rain, incl. Elen, naturally, DJ Vankor and
some dancers. It was great club music, and with this group Elen gave her
first concert in the night club!!! After Non-stop and Kids of rain, after
few yers, she took part in Hop-hop & Lounge project TRILOBIT, incl.
3 persons - Elen, Vasily Kirshenkov and Katja Shahmatova. But this project
was over soon! Also Elen always sang as a solo-singer because she has
so many her own songs!!! In 2007 she began to sing in the most successful,
than all her old projects, band SIBERIAN HEAT! It is the DISCO project
with wonderful old-style (Italo Disco) music!
Fancy is with us again with
new CD named Forever Magic! Actually there
are two versions of this album, all of songs are the same but bonus. First
one is published in Germany and it has two old remixed songs as bonus.
Another one is published in Russia and it has some new bad song as bonus.
I can mention a few interesting songs. Flames Of
Love is kind of weird this time, it is half in English and half
in Russian. Actually very bad Russian :), it is very hard to understand
the lyrics, I really wonder who told him how to sing it. Yet, it has some
charm, it's the same as when Italians sing in bad English... The best
song that lasts only 2.27 is Forever Magic.
It makes me wanna dance to it every time I hear it, just like Love
Spy does. Some parts are stolen from some Eurodance songs from
90's... This song is really great, can't stop listening to it! Little
Juliet is very interesting because of something typical. Check
up what is it. A Voice In The Dark - also
great song, maxi is already released, I'll upload it soon. Do I have to
say that remixed Go Cha Cha and Wait
By The Radio are also something to enjoy in? So this CD has something
that was expected from Fancy - very nice and catchy melodies that make
you wanna sing along. I have to mention worst song ever that Fancy published
- I'm Your Bodyguard. I really can't believe
it. Is it a Turkish folk song or what??? Hm... I have no idea what was
it that he wanted to achieve with this one. Strange... Anyway, it nice
to hear that Fancy is active again. Now we wait for Forever
Magic maxi single. Untill than, enjoy this album!
And sad news at the end
- RIP Mike Francis. He died on 30.1.2009.
after a long illness.
Real name: Francesco Puccioni (April 26th, 1961. - January 30th, 2009.)

FlashBack Records CD compilation
Presence Of The Past Vol. 2 is out! So what
do we have here. Fred Ventura - I Want You Back
is usually good. Yet, the last song that was masterpiece was Memories.
After that single songs are fine but that's it - just fine. I hope to
hear some perfection from Fred again... Tiziana
Rivale - Ash is also nice song. It is easy to get used to it after
a few listenings. Felli - Shadows Of The Night...
One word - perfection! New song by Riccardo Campa
- Desperado. It's not yet on vynil, only on this CD. I like it
very much, yet it's not as good as Another Day
and Madness... Dyva
- My Love. Can guys from Dyva go wrong? I don't think so! Their
music is really something! Peter Arcade is
presented with song The Fairytale. Another
reallly good song, but I prefer A side of the same recod - song with intresting
title - Italo Disco. Then Bruno
Mosti - Music Of My Star. Hm... This song confuses me. I like it
a bit and then I don't wanna listen to it. And my opinion changes all
the time. Strange... George aaron - Heaven
- one of the best songs in last few years. Great!! Then Patty
- My Name Is Patty - was it supposed to sound like Sabrina? I guess.
This song has some really nice parts but I simply can't stand those guitars.
Horrible! Hey producers, this is Italo Disco! Wrong instrument for this
kind of music! And the last song Karl Otto &
Joey Mauro - Come Into My Dream. It's OK but something is wrong
here. Seems like some instrument is a bit late and it makes it out of
sync. Actually it's not, but it is just my impression. It also happens
in some other songs that Joey Mauro made... So that's it, if you don't
want to buy records, this is a chance to buy a CD.
