Pump Up the Volume

It is hard to pass up such a seminal work from the 80's as the "Pump up the Volume" single. And, it contains two versions of the lesser-known "Anitina (The First Time I See She Dance)".

I am unsure of how many versions of "Pump up the Volume" exist, but neither of the versions on this single are ones that I was familiar with. Still, it is hard to ruin this song no matter how you mix it, and both are very good. The regular mix edges out the remix as the latter version feels like it lasts a little too long. Although, the remix seems to be closer to the version that MTV used to play.

"Anitina (The First Time I See She Dance)" is a bit slower, more cohesive, and more mainstream than the more familiar "Pump up the Volume" but still very recognizable as M|A|R|R|S. The remix, while being a full minute longer, does not feel any longer and varies enough throughout to keep the listener from becoming bored.

This single is definitely worth a couple of bucks, which is all many online stores will charge for a single with four tracks.
