Mike’s Music Monday #4

This week we go back to the disco beat with a tune by Phil Fearon and Galaxy called Dancing Tight.  Born in Jamaica in 1956, Fearon moved to London when he was 5 and eventually set up a recording studio in his North London house.  Together with backing singers, Julie and Dorothy, he had his first hit with this record, reaching no. 4 in the UK  in 1983 (according to Wiki).  However, the video below says 1984 and was probably taken from the UK’s infamous Top of the Pops TV programme.   I’m not sure if he made it in the States, but he did have 2 other UK Top 10 hits ‘Do What I Do’ and ‘Everybody’s Laughing’ (the video for which is worth watching in itself).

Don’t miss the forward flip half way through the song.  Impressive or what!?
