SONG FOR TODAY: Laid Back - White Horse

ARTIST: Laid Back

SONG: White Horse

ALBUM: Keep Smiling

YEAR: 1983

NOTES: Thanks to the guys from Django Django for posting a link on their Twitter page to this excellent track, which I don't think I've heard before. Made a year before I was even born, and way ahead of its time in terms of style and sound. 

"'White Horse' is a 1983 crossover post-disco single written by Tim Stahl and John Guldberg of the Danish synth-pop duo Laid Back. In the U.S., the single was most successful on the dance chart where it spent three weeks at number one. The single also made the top five on the R&B singles chart and peaked at number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100. 'Erotic City' by Prince and the Revolution released in 1984 as the b-side of 'Let's Go Crazy' is heavily indebted to 'White Horse'..."
