    Default Help...Looking for drum instrumental heard in 1985!!!

    Please anyone....i am looking for this drum instrumental with some melody... i heard it first in 1985....it starts slow and then a hook with fast tempo drums. At the end there is one awesome melody. I don't know how else to describe it. I wish i could send some audio with me humming it.

    Also the song by Snap called Rythm is a dancer....I know for sure i first heard the background rythm around '86 - '88. I could never find that original...it's like it never existed because it's never mentioned. Can anyone help???

    You can record yourself humming it, then upload it to a freeshare site, and put the link here. In the meantime, possibly this?

    The Goodmen - Give It Up

    For the second one:

    Newcleus - Automan

    Try some songs by YELLO
    They were very famous in the 80ies (at least in Europa)

    I thank you so much Mixalopoulos. I loved several of Newcleus jams back in the days but had no idea they were the ones who made that song. Surprising that everywhere I read about the history of that Snap number, Newcleus was never mentioned. Anyway, thanks again.

    Now the first instrumental I mentioned is my top not-yet-found song of all time. I will be extremely thrilled if it's found. I will consider posting audio.

    Hi Mixalopoulos ....I already thanked you for seeking out the second song for me....it then occurred to me that the first, more important one could also be from Newcleus. I was right....the name of that instrumental (i have so longed to hear since the tape it was recorded on for me was stolen in 1986 ) is Destination Earth!!! Wow....I owe you big time... thanks so much....you are a winner.
