The Hit Factory - Stock Aitken Waterman

I thought it was time to post something a little less obscure from the cassette bins. Most of these tracks are probably well known so I'm not going to post much commentary. If you can, let me know in the comments what your favorite track is of this genre.

Stock Aitken and Waterman are still doing things. Here is a link to Waterman's website with news, etc. He's behind Lola apparently, some pop girl I'm not down with. And there are rumours that Stock Aitken and Waterman are going to come back and run a reality show about pop or something. Here is an amusing article reflecting their personalities and what's going on now.

And make sure you head over and pick up the excellent Run Disco Run - Moxie 008. It's very good, at Dilate Choonz.

Also, pick up this excellent remix of Army of Lovers - I'm Crucified (razrmaid mix). I have always loved this tune.

mmmm . . . the making of Venus. Too many moments to smile about. Check out the oiled dancers under the cape and the Italian honey directing them.

did you know that an anti-abortion group contesting every UK seat in the European elections is being directly funded by royalties from Sinitta’s 1980s disco classic ‘So Macho’.

that's hilarious. Takes all sorts I guess. The music industry is full of stories like that. Donna Summer and Vanity Six both being examples of people who, rueful of their funtimes, started whipping themselves into a religious frenzy once the seratonin started slowing down.

Those Princess tracks are great, especially "Say I'm Your Number One" - easily the best of the bunch!
