Kind of a mixed bag / bag of mixes. Loving this song, but couldn't find much information on 80s synth-pop artist Anna (Anna Quinn), save for that her dreamy pop confection "Like They Do In The Movies", released in 1981, was the first of only two singles. Anna released "Systems Breaking Down" the following year before fading into some obscurity.

"Like They Do In The Movies" was written by Ken Leray (who wrote Fern Kinney's only number one hit in 1979, "Together We Are Beautiful"), and Geraint Hughes who penned "I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper" for Sarah Brightman and Hot Gossip . . .
So, so hot . . . and I just love fog machines, don't you ? You really can't go wrong with a fog machine and a troop of dancers leaping around in skin-tight body suits, I always say.
More Italo-Disco from that magic years of 1982-83. The first, from Digital Emotion, and a re-edit by Seattle DJ / Producer "7Up" and a 12" released in 2005. One of the members of Q-Feel, Martin Page, went on to write "These Dreams" for Heart and "We Built This City" for Starship.

I've been loving the latest re-releases of Disconet classics. "Again and Again" is one of my mid-80s disco favorites by Nikki Lauren that hasn't reappeared on a compilation yet.

Possibly one of the better mixes from Southern California DJ and disco aficionado Glenn Rivera's extensive output is his subtle ReStructure of gorgeous uplifter "Tomorrow", originally from Cappuccino's 1981 self-titled LP, you know, the one that brought us disco destroyer "Hell Dance With Me" when that album resurfaced (at least on my radar) a while ago. Get your disco download fiend on at Mr. Rivera's Shades Of Seventies page. You know you want to.
