AOR Radio: Hot Summer Madness

Aurélien Buttin (C-Heads Magazine)
A few years back I shared a car with two ladies who were in the middle of a conversation, when I heard the intro of Sweet Lui-Louise by Ironhorse softly coming through on the radio. I immediately asked them to stop talking and turned up the volume. The only way to listen to that song by Canadian rock legend Randy Bachman (of Bachman-Turner Overdrive fame) is to play it as loud as possible on the car speakers! :-)

A little bit out of the AOR box is Under The Sun, the new single by German singer/producer Roosevelt. For Young Romance (out on September 28) Roosevelt aka Marius Lauber travelled to Los Angeles where he worked on completing his demos. Where the first album was deeply rooted in club culture, and neon lit Nightmoves, his new album shows his newfound love for bigger, bolder pop songs.

Sky High by British band Jigsaw was the main title theme to the film The Man from Hong Kong and a worldwide hit in the latter part of 1975. The song was composed by keyboard player Clive Scott and singer/drummer Des Dyer. The orchestral arrangement was by Richard Hewson (Rah Band). It reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the Adult Contemporary chart in the United States. It was also a top 10 single in the UK Singles Chart and a Top 40 hit in the Netherlands.

Enjoy this new part of AOR Radio!
