Italo Versions of Yacht Rock Legends  

Beat Electric is all about these Italo versions of yacht rock classics. Here we have our favorite rendition of a Chicago classic with a sultry sexy treatment that almost makes the listener want to commit suicide. Next is probably the first mash up ever. What happens when you mix Michael Jackson with Steely Dan? Tough question, but we are sure you will clown fools when you play it in the club tonight.

    I bought the "Do it again vs. Billy Jean " 12" in the early 80's, although the label says Clubhouse as the artist.

    I never came to think of what the other song was... Now I know. Thanks!

    Pink Project were doing "mashups" a few year before... They have a couple of double LP's out with some great cuts (and other less fortunate attemps). (
