French Kiss – Lil´ Louis

Publicado: 29/02/2008 en Uncategorized

Lil Louis is the stage name used by Chicago-born house music producer and DJ Louis Burns. He scored a number of hits on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the eighties and nineties, three of which hit #1.
His best known song, “French Kiss,” featured vocals by Shawn Christopher and spent two weeks at #1 on the dance chart in 1989. The house track (now considered a classic) features a several-minutes-long breakdown in which the music gradually slowed down in tempo to a complete stop and left nothing but orgasmic moaning from Ms. Christopher. Even with its sensual sound, it crossed over to some dance-leaning pop radio stations and climbed to #50 on the Hot 100. It was a big success throughout Europe reaching # 2 in the UK and in Germany for example.

Los Años 80 – Los Piratas

Publicado: 29/02/2008 en Uncategorized

Cuando me hiciste llamar no sospechaba
plastilina con color, ropa interior, recuerdos de allá fuera
comics de ciencia-ficción, vida interior

Y yo no quiero volver
no me repitas jamás que no sabes que hora es
las 7.37 o no?
ya terminé

No te echaré de menos en septiembre
verano muerto veré a las chicas pasar

Sera como aquella cancion de los años 80
seré como el tipo que algún dia fui..

Blody marys en el bar
un deja vu, matrix está cambiando
por la confesión brutal de tu relato

y yo no quiero volver……
