"Don't Drop Bombs" by Liza Minelli – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Liza Minelli plays a disco diva very well – regardless of the fabulous Pet Shop Boys production. From the 1989 project “Results” were a few big dance floor hits and innovative-diva stances. Her cover of “Love Pains” is still matched as much as a classic as “Losing My Mind” – high energy again in transformation in the late 80s. Very exciting!
“Don’t Drop Bombs” is the story of a lover who just cannot be true and although there is a leak of information, a motive is in store – which is what this diva re-assures herself. Fantastic track.
I have paired the big dance track to the 1983 film, “War Games” starring Matthew Broderick, Ally Sheedy and John Wood. The story centers on a young computer geek (not looking) who finds a back door into a military central computer system and is under the impression he is playing a digital game – that may lead to World War III. The drama fits well with the explosions and tie-line of course but in synching some of the actual human drama to me, it fits as well.
The film was directed by John Badham (“Saturday Night Fever”)
