GIORGIO MORODER

THE ELECTROPOP YEARS (1980-85)


Feb 1980 7"/12" Sparks: When I'm with You

    When I'm with You 3.52 / When I'm with You (instrumental) 3.45
This single version is available on 'Sparks: The Heaven Collection' CD and 'The Very Best of Sparks' Repertoire CD. Liner notes in Sparks CD "The Heaven Collection" 1993: "Ron had played Giorgio scores of songs before recording 'Terminal Jive' and all had been rejected with the exception of 'When I'm with You' which Giorgio still felt needed a new middle section. In commercial terms, this was the biggest single Sparks has had to date, and it was never even released in America. The majority of the sales came from France where we stayed for nine months as a result of the large number of TV shows we appeared on. A video of Ron as a ventriloquist and me as his dummy (no comments please) was shown to death in France. As a result, we could walk into virtually any couscous restaurant in Paris and get the best table in the house."

All songs produced by Moroder/Bellotte. Recorded in 1981 and intended for release the same autumn, but for various reasons it was not released until 1996. A wide range of styles, but I only like eight of them: 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15 and 16. Not her best album but worth buying anyway. Some CDs have a different track order than mine.

11 April 1983 soundtrack LP (+ CD) FLASHDANCE

  1. Flashdance ... What a Feeling 3.53 [music and production: Moroder; vocals: Irere Cara]
  2. He's a Dream 3.28 [no involvement by Moroder]
  3. Love Theme from Flashdance 3.27 [music and production: Moroder; vocals: Helen St. John]
  4. Manhunt [no involvement by Moroder]
  5. Lady, Lady, Lady 4.09 [music and production by Moroder; vocals by Joe Esposito]

  6. Imagination 3.35 [no involvement by Moroder]
  7. Romeo 3.13 [music: Bellotte/Levay; produced by Moroder/Bellotte; vocals: Donna Summer]
  8. Seduce Me Tonight 3.31 [music and production by Moroder; vocals by Cycle V]
  9. I'll Be Here Where the Heart Is 4.36 [no involvement by Moroder]
  10. Maniac 4.04 [no involvement by Moroder]
1 is a standard Moroder production, 3 is a wonderful and hauntingly beautiful song which shows that he can not only play rhythms but also write beautiful melodies. 4 is a very good rocker, and 5 is a romantic and slow affair that was very popular in 1983, and 6 is OK too. 7 is from Donna Summer's I'm a Rainbow and is an electronic rock stomper. 8 is more conventional rock with Moroder's stomping. 9 is romantic (and boring) and the final track 10 is actually one of the best tracks on the album even though Moroder has nothing to do with it.

    (CD April 1997: Unidisc, SPLK 7299)
Produced by Moroder (except 'You Were Made For Me': produced by James Newton Howard). Generally a very nice and uptempo dance album (5, 6 and 10 are the only slower tracks). Includes five extended versions and one bonus track ('Talk Too Much' which is more of a synth pop tune than a dance track, not unlike Romance '83). In short, a great CD!

All music and production by Giorgio Moroder. An excellent rock-disco style album (except for track 4). My only complaint is that they could have put some extended versions as bonus tracks on the reissue CD, which is only 35 minutes long.

    (CD: CD VIP 127)
4 is corny, 5 is an OK rocker, 9 is a slow melody only, and 10 needs no further description. ELO founder Jeff Lynne's two tracks are in my opinion the best on this soundtrack. Heaven 17's song is an OK instrumental too. Clive Hocker noticed something interesting: 'Watch out for Moroder in a brief speaking role towards the end of the film when havoc is breaking out in a radio station!'
