Whitney Houston – How Will I Know (Remix)

I made this remix myself using an instrumental track with the acapella vocal track and arranged it using my MacBook Pro. Since YouTube naturally blocked it (despite there being other versions online with similar audio content). So I’m uploading my version here. It may not fall under the “New Wave” genre but it definitely qualifies as Retro!

Bow Wow Wow – Sexy Eiffel Towers

Open Sexy Eiffel Towers [6MB]

One of Bow Wow Wow’s early recordings from 1981, it features their signature tribal beat and Annabella’s excitedly and risqué heavy breathing and moans during the chorus. She was barely a teenager when this was recorded, something I doubt wouldn’t even be a second thought in today’s music business. But still, it’s catchy and fun and pushes the envelope even by today’s standards.
