I have been fascinated with the 2007 remix of 90’s and 80’s dance/pop tunes ever since the Synergy Christmas Party At Don Juan’s (DJ was awesome by the way) and I stumbled upon this fab site, Digital Eargasm. You can download the hottest remixes for free. There are also a number of other great sites: Retro Remixes, The Remix Archive 2.0 to name a few. I was able to get most of the songs that I heard that night. The DJs have been remixing “I Know What Boys Want”, “Take On Me”, “Too Shy” to name a couple.

Not that it was easy to do in those days – needed a record player with a cassette deck that you could record with. Trying to find this song before the days of the Internet was like looking for a needle in a haystack but I found it today!!!! They actually have a video on You Tube and here it is:
