Thursday 10 January: Giorgio Moroder – Never Ending Story (Marat Taturas Magicwave Remix
This #throwbackthursday, I present the Marat Taturas Magicwave Remix of the legendary Giorgio Moroder original Never Ending Story, made popular by Kajagoogoo vocalist Limahl. As a reference to the film and its title, the song has no distinctive beginning, nor an end. The remix is on the Club Remixes Selection Two to honour the disco / synth pop compositions by Giorgio Moroder.
