In 1989, Arthur Baker released a remix of The Message Is Love. Al Green recorded it, after having a big hit with Put A Little Love In Your Heart (1988). Arthur Baker, who worked with artists like Afrika Bambaataa and New Order, remixed his song. The result was a number 38 hit in the UK, though it was a bigger hit in other parts of Europe, resulting in a number 4 hit in Austria, number 6 in Germany and number 12 in the Netherlands. Enjoy

Song of the day: The Eagles- One Of These Nights

In 1975, the Eagles came back with a new album, which was inspired by soul! Artists like Al Green and B.B. King had a big influence on the music, as did the new guitarist Don Felder, who invented the riff which opened One Of These Nights. As the song is about putting things off, the album did not put anything off: the single became the second number 1 hit in the US, the album sold platinum in the UK and four times platinum in the US.
