Versions of HYPNOTIC TANGO by MY MINE an Italo Disco Classic

A FRESH ZIP OF MY MINE same as mixes mentioned below
Hypnotic Tango by My Mine is an 11 out 10 for me!  It's every magical aspect of italo disco to the third power.  This razormaid remix may even be better then the original, it's certainly longer.  This song stirs up my italo blood.  I'm really not well enough versed in music commentary to explain why.  For me it's just the feeling that I get each and every time I've ever heard it.  The castanets are fun too.  This song will never get old for me.  1983 was so important for me.  I had already enjoyed my first year at American University in D.C. and was finally free to go out to clubs every night.  Clubbing was all I ever wanted to do but in Western Connecticut there wasn't much of a reason to do so!  So in '83 I convinced my Italian parents that I had to get in touch with my ancestral roots but of course that was just an excuse to go out constantly to the Roman clubs.

Hypnotic Tango was everywhere!  On the radio and on the dancefloors and I was losing my teenage mind to it.   DISCO SYNDICATE EDIT THE INSTRUMENTAL

Hell even Bananarama did a cover version, which I will have to admit I thought was brilliant even though it was a massive flop for them in 2005.  

They look a little gay, huh?  1983 was a very new wave kinda year.  Androgyny was all the rage.

Hypnotic tango
Tango
Tango!
Stuck in my seat can't move no way the other guys knows the game to play
I'm watchin' her
I'm watchin' me
I'm gettin' brave

Oh
Take him apart say listen to me.
Look on the floor and all is spinning round

Someone told me this was just a dance

And take a chance I ain't met before
Do you think I really have a chance?
Hypnotic tango
Tango
Tango!

Rough diamond he smiles
She looks at him

Ain't gonna be
No story in love

Take me to the dance
Floor by the hand

Give me this night
In a foreign land.
Look on the floor
And all is spinning round
. . .
Look on the floor
And all is spinning round
. . .

Hypnotic
Hypnotic

Hypnotic
Hypnotic -
Look on the floor
And all is spinning round
. . .
Look on the floor
And all is sinning round
