@hingehead,
Being um, mildly insane myself, I have an awareness of this sorta thing.

Anyway, insanity can be healthy if it keeps me moving about.

No Iz - had not heard of them. I hope not using it as a template for torturing you.

@hingehead,
Not at all, two twenty something men playing pranks on their dads who is very Australian and very angry.

This is their favourite, there is a honk if you're horny sign on the back of his car, and he doesn't know.



My kids don't prank me.

@izzythepush,
I'm guessing you had few more kids and and the survivors were the ones who learnt not to punk their dad.

I just heard the former and was immediately reminded of the latter.


They're both club songs at heart and from 1984, when there were a lot of synthesizers in pretty much anything with a beat. Ross's song is in a lower key and seems overly serious; Madonna's is playful.

@jespah,
Oh, yeah definitely hear that both have that mid 80s HI-NRG thing happening.

I thought I'd check to see if there was any cross fertilisation going on but not obviously. Ross' track was produced by Daryl Hall and Arthur Baker, while Madonna co-produced hers with Stephen Bray.

I think the Ross track was released first. Interestingly (if you're me) 'Into The Groove' was never released as a single in the US - it was the B-side of Angel.

@hingehead,
Hey, thanks for checking. It's odd that "...Groove" never got released as a single here. I think it was one of her better earlier songs.

Not so much a song soundalike as a vocalist soundalike

Ray Wylie Hubbard sounds like he has Mark Knopfler overdubs.



Maybe it was just the production on the Snake Farm album - he certainly doesn't sound the same live.

Just heard this first one for the first time. Couldn't think of what it reminded me of until suddenly I knew it was the second one.
