When I first heard Streetsounds Electro 5 I couldn't decide whether I liked 'B Boys Breakdance' or this the best. Volume 5 is filled with classics and is arguably the greatest of the whole series. I had every one of those on the 12" vinyl format at one time or another but the aforementioned two beauties are the pick of the bunch for me. It's the B-side again too. The A-side track, 'Summer' is almost the same but has a bit of singing and is a bit less heavy. I didn't appreciate singing on hardcore b boy tunes in 1984. I'm not too bothered nowadays either but I've mellowed a little. We probably all have. It's these kinds of records that bring 1984 back though. Spinning around (not like Kylie) on a piece of cardboard on the side of the road while your 'JVC vibrated the concrete'. Everyone was into it and it was great. There's only me left now and you lot of course. Everyone else fell off and started listening to Boyzone or Elvis. I can't do that. Apart from wanting to stab myself in the eardrum I don't feel anything when I hear groups like that. This is a regular on my ipod along with all the early eighties classics and I never get tired of hearing them. It's in me all the time and I'm certain it'll never fade. Happy days.
