Hit Mix 86 - continuous mix of 1986 hits

I probably chose to post this mostly because of the design of the cover. I do love 80's groove, but most of these tracks are a bit too cheesy for me. And unfortunately, each track doesn't last very long. But for a good image of 1986 charts, it's quite excellent. I particularly like the moment where Colonel Abrams' Trapped mixes into The Whispers' And the Beat Goes On. I have listed at the bottom of this post mp3s for some of the tracks I prefer from this mix as standalone tracks.

Side A Mix
1 Sly Fox-Let’s Go All The Way
2 Nik Kershaw-Wouldn’t It Be Good
3 Paul Hardcastle-Don’t Waste My Time
4 Amazulu-Too Good To Be Forgotten
5 Princess-Say I’m Your Number One
6 Belouis Some-Imagination
7 Thompson Twins-You Take me Up
8 Samantha Fox-Touch Me, (I want your body)
9 Baltimora-Tarzan Boy
10 Kate Bush-Running Up That Hill
11 David Grant & Jaki Graham-Could It Be I’m Falling In Love
12 Kajagoogoo-Too Shy
13 Nik Kershaw-I Won’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me
14 Shalamar-A Night To Remember
15 David Grant-Watching You, Watching Me
16 Phil Fearon-I Can Prove It
17 Paul Hardcastle-Just For Money
18 Break Machine-Street Dance
19 MC Miker ‘G’ and DJ Sven-Holiday, (rap)
20 Boris Gardner-I Want To Wake Up With You
21 Latin Quarter-Radio Africa

Side B Mix
1 Ruby Turner-If You’re Ready, (come go with me)
2 Wally Badarou-Chief Inspector
3 The Real Roxanne with Hitman Howie Tee-Bang Zoom, (let’s go go)
4 Whistle- (nothin’serious), - Just Buggin’
5 Change-Let’s Get Together
6 Kenny G-What Does It Take, (to win your love)
7 Run DMC-King of Rock
8 Midnight Star-Headlines
9 The Real Thing-Can’t Get By Without You
10 Jaki Graham-Set Me Free
11 Skipworth & Turner-Thinking About Your Love
12 B B & Q Band-Dreamer
13 Rah Band-Clouds Across the Moon
14 Grace Jones-Pull Up To the Bumper
15 The Real Thing-You To Me Are Everything, (remix)
16 Millie Scott-Prisoner of Love
17 Aretha Franklin-Who’s Zoomin’ Who
18 The Three Degrees-The Heaven I Need
19 Pointer Sisters-Automatic
20 Colonel Abrams-Trapped
21 Whispers-And the Beat Goes On
22 Colonel Abrams-I’m Not Gonna Let You
23 Dhar Braxton-Jump Back

I would love to post The Real Thing - Can't Get By Without You if anyone wants to send it to me.

And another treat not from the mix that is in a similar vein (from 1988) which I just discovered:

Womack & Womack - Teardrops (Jeansbjorn & Fisken mix)

I love Hits in the Car.


Thanks for the comment. Which album are you referring to? There's no shame in anything as long as it's clear what it's place is in life :)

There is only one tape from 1986 that I will play :)

I was thinking of the Hit Mix 86. I have the vinyl(s) somewhere I'm sure. And you're right! It served its purpose 20 years ago, so no reason to be embarrassed :)

Oh - and thanks for the nice words on Hits In The Car :))

Tom - impossible to guess what tape you're thinking of ;)

A mix by Les "LA MIX" Adams including such gems as Sly Fox, Run DMC, The Real Thing, The Whispers and Paul Hardcastle is "Nothing to be proud of"? Are you kidding!?
