Baby's Gang - Challenger

The space shuttle Challenger blew the fuck up in 1986. One of the cosmonauts on board was from my neighborhood and had gone to college with my teacher. Our entire second grade class watched on the television as the Challenger went ka-blooey. All of the teachers cried.

Before all that business the Challenger was the inspiration for one of my favorite Italo Disco records. This is it. The title track and the legendary party banger Happy Song are without a doubt classics. Justice had clearly been listening to this shit on repeat when they wrote DANCE and who could blame them? Check out the whole LP below. By the way the above video is priceless.
