    @venusclare This one. And Madeleine Bell's other classic, the news jingle from 194 Radio City.

  48. mister clem says:

    This song is older than those cars ! BUT it looks well cool.
    I don't think Dusty did this , obviously it sounds like dusty cos MB was one of her backing singers and it was their style.
    Very Uplifting , and very american style production with that blastin sound , due to parallel compression …perhaps?
