Honorebel Mention: “Under Pressure
CS209836-01A-BIG

How many songs from 1986 can you find that speak about the tension between Russia and America, Ronald Reagan and Gaddafi, or the CIA-induced violence in Nicaragua? Super Cat sounds like an elder statesman on “Under Pressure” as he displays his knowledge of global politics here, but he is still rocking the dance on this cut, done over another updated version of the Skatalites classic rhythm, Heavenless.โ€”Sherman Escoffery
