Club House (1983) Do It Again medley with Billie Jean 7″

Do It Again medley with Billie Jean

Very Brief:
Club HouseMichael– Club House was an Italian house music studio group composed of Gianfranco Bortolotti, Carl Fanini, Hidalgo Serra, and Silvio Pozzoli, who got their start capitalizing on the popularity of Michael Jackson (and small world, we just mentioned his song in yesterday’s post!). As I recall, one group member felt Billie Jean’s beat reminded him of the Do It Again shuffle, so they did a mashup before mashups were cool; it’s essentially a Do It Again remake (but leaving out one verse) with Billie’s specific beat, though it does have some parts of Billie’s chorus sung within it as well. It didn’t tear up the radio charts in the US, but did better on the dance chart, and made it to #11 in Britain. Believe it or not, they’re only a one-hit-wonder on the pop chart here; they continued to have American dance hits into the early 90s, and seven more British Top 100 entries, plus charting around Europe and even in Australia once. And as often happened in the 80s, other acts did pile-on cover versions as well (à la Robey’s version of “One Night In Bangkok”): American group Slingshot took their version to #1 on the Dance chart later on.
