80's Flashback

West India Company, Ave Maria (Om Ganesha), 1984. Bollywood playback singer Asha Bhosle teamed up with Erasure's Vince Clarke and Blancmange's Stephen Luscombe to create what I consider one of the all-time classics of 80's club music. (On the 12", Clarke is credited with "pyrotechnics." Indeed.) This is easily one of the most obscure of these posts, but if you were on the dance floor after 4am at a gay club back then, you danced to this. And you probably did the "praying hands" dance during the recitation of Hail Mary. Also, if you've seen any Bollywood musical, you'll recognize Asha Bhosle's voice.
