    He's one of the most under-rated producers in the industry - unless you happen to be a fan of engineers and producers.

    His list of projects is serious - Yes, Seal, Tina Turner, Brian Adams, Paul McCartney, Asia, Simple Minds, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Rod Stewart, Cher ...

    I'm always amazed by his productions - even if I may not be crazy about a particular song he produced - I've always respected and admired his work.

    Thanks for posting this, Sean. :)

    I'm glad you enjoyed it Donny.

    Iv'e been a fan of Trevor Horn since I first heard VKTRS in 1980 at the tender age of 8...the guy with those thick coke-bottle glasses on the tv singing about how this new thing called video was killing the radio star...this guy really intrigued me and I loved the song from the moment I first heard it.

    I've always admired Grace Jones and the first time I heard Slave To The Rhythm I was amazed at what at the time for me was such a laid back album yet with such sophisticated arrangements.

    Another of Trevor Horns' wonderful arrangements and mixes. Its still to this day one of my favorite albums.

    His list of credits is enormous. I agree, he's very under-rated but to those who appreciate his work

    This song is a timeless classic and the film clip still brings a smile to my face 31 years after its release.

    Actually, while I didn't like it at the time, looking back, it's actually a pretty cool track. I was just into way different stuff back in '82, and that clouded my judgement.
