Corporation Of One – The Real Life

The Real Life
1988 Smokin’

Notes :
A fantastic 80’s electro track, massively based on Simple Minds cracking early 80’s instrumental anthem ‘Theme For Great Cities’. It also has samples thrown in from the likes of Queen and even Al Pacino stars on it with some vocals from Scarface!!! Its a real bouncy track, guaranteed to have everybody giving it the large one on the dancefloor once that beat kicks in.
