Last Night a DJ Saved My Life by Indeep

Indeep was led by the songwriter-musician Michael Cleveland. This funky disco-style track by peaked at No.13 in the UK during January 1983. In the U.S. it reached the Top Ten in both the R&B and Club charts. The vocalists were Reggie and Rose Marie Ramsey.

This 80s classic was the group's only hit in the UK, with the follow-up single When Boys Talk failing to break the Top 40, peaking at #67. However, it did manage #16 on the U.S. Club charts. 

Should you have the time, you can choose from over 20 versions of the song in the playlist above. My favourite is video 13 which features a mash-up with Billie Jean by Michael Jackson.
