MY MIXES ARE APPEARING ON YOUTUBE.

MY MIXES ARE APPEARING ON YOUTUBE.
SADLY, MOST OF THEM HAVE NO CREDIT MENTIONING WHO MADE THEM - THAT WOULD BE MOI!

OOH JA JA (12")- PUSSYFOOT
I've just discovered one of my earliest extended remixes has been put on YouTube by an admirer who made a film clip using stills of the artist, Pussyfoot. Donna Jones (Pussyfoot), first had a hit with 'The Way You Do It' back in 1976 which was banned by the BBC for its suggestive lyrics but was a massive seller in Oz. She had an equally big hit in Oz with the follow-up 'Ooh Ja Ja.' Her co-writing husband Mick Flinn, was part of the Oz group The Mixtures who had a hit in the UK with the charming 'Pushbike Song.' After Pussyfoot folded Donna became a member of The New Seekers.
Nice to know that rare and obscure Ozzie hits are getting a bit of a revival. 
The dance craze songs of the era included The Bump, The Hustle, The Bus-Stop and this one, Ooh Ja Ja.


GETTING SO EXCITING (7") - LEE KOSMIN
Also just found somebody has lifted this remixed single and made a clip for it as well! Lee Kosmin was from London's pub scene in the early 1980s. It was a hit in Oz.

  1. You've just solved a 4 decade old mystery for me.

    I've had a song stuck in my head since the early 70's, and all I had was the tune of the chorus and part of the lyrics, which have never turned up on a lyric search ("How I wish I could fly, gettin' high...").

    Then today, when I was reading through your blog, I noticed the title "Rooftop Singing" - which fitted the sound pattern of what I remembered. The release date of 1973 also checked out.

    And then, when I listened to your mix of the song, I immediately recognised it as the same long lost tune which has been puzzling me for all these years.

    Mystery solved.

    Thanks!

    Dave
