Butterfly by Op.8 is a super Kitsch Italo Disco


Another perfect example of why I find Italo Disco to be such a fun genre.  Butterfly by 0p.8 on the seminal italo disco label Disco Magic was released in 1984 and it's a delight.


It has of course become insanely collectible and in 2010 ZYX Music even went to the trouble to put out on mp3 file for it.

TOKYO DREAMS, TOKYO DREAMS IN MY HEART

There are elements of the Orient, sweet harmonies, and a catchy refrain. Then there is always that funny play on words that the act calls itself.  Two listens and you can already hum it.
