In the spring of 1982, The Human League's "Don't You Want Me" was a hit, but that summer, Soft Cell's "Tainted Love" was a phenomenon. Staying on the Billboard charts for 52 weeks straight, the single made it clear that the new wave of British synthesizer bands were commercially viable in America. AM radio stations even willingly played the nine-minute extended version of the song, which paired the obscure Ed Cobb (of "Dirty Water" fame) R&B tune with a complete reworking of a certified soul landmark, Holland-Dozier-Holland's "Where Did Our Love Go." That second song is included--though "Tainted Love" isn't--on the EP NON-STOP ECSTATIC DANCING, which collects extended mixes of several other Soft Cell singles, including the remarkable "What?" and the contents-under-pressure "Insecure...Me?" alongside a remix of the album track "Sex Dwarf." This is one of the first and best of the early-'80s remix EPs, or "mini-albums."

Flamenco: The Unending Dance & Unwavering Song

On November 16th 2010, UNESCO officially recognised flamenco as a universal form of art by inscribing it on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The United Nations gave cante jondo (the deep, primitive singing of flamenco) a contemporary stature, exceeding its historical and ethnic origins.

Nebraska: When Bruce Springsteen Laid Himself Bare

In 1982, at the height of his glory, the Boss surprised the world with “Nebraska,” a stripped back and entirely acoustic album. A timeless masterpiece bathed in echoes and reflections. An album that describes an America from the margins, and that many consider his best.

Elton John: The First 10 Years

What remains from the early years of Elton John’s career? A bountiful discography and an incalculable number of hits of great exuberance and occasional melancholy. For the release of David Fletcher’s biopic on John, Rocketman, let us look back to this marvelous artist’s career in the 1970s.
