    Man I’ve been duckin’ in and out for a while, but I HAD to speak up about Billy Ocean. I have some serious memories associated with this particular track. And what’s more, I’ve been looking for it all over the place and can’t find it on any compilations or even the album it was one.
    Thanks for the blast!

    Just by putting Billy Ocean’s “Nights” on this makes it the best OSW EVER!
    Dude never rocked a track this hard after this…and this was his first joint!!

    Yo, EJ and all…
    I’ll second James’ comments but, instead, insert The System where he has Billy Ocean (haha). The System 4-Ever! You also managed to include one of my other favorite producers, Kasshif.
    Peace and Happy 4th of July!
