    Thanks for the reminder on that one. Early 1980s, I played keyboard in a band that did this song; I learned the synth solo note-for-note. And totally screwed it up on the one gig that we recorded (which may also explain why no one has the tape but me). The band consisted of a bunch of folkie musician friends of my older brother - and we only did rock+roll numbers. Called ourselves "Da Fabulous Spleenz." We sucked, but we had fun.

    Popcorn by Hot Butter (Seems to have become a popular Techno song)

    Joy- Apollo 100 (Sped up Bach - Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring)

    Most anything from Toto's first album:
    Hold the Line
    Girl Goodbye
    I'll Supply the Love
