This song has nothing to do with salsa or Smurfs. There’s actually not much info floating around about Special Request. This was a vocoder-heavy electronic track that was released by Tommy Boy in 1983. It’s synthy and funky, so naturally, I like it.
A Modern Songbook by Kaelin Bougneit Well, this cover of Gary Numan / Tubeway Army’s classic “Are “Friends” Electric?” Is most definitely the best cover
