Morning Aural: Irene Cara

Let’s get this week started right with a little aural love from Irene Cara, the woman who brought us “Fame” and “What A Feeling,” the theme from Flashdance. While those are both great songs – and included after the jump – we’d like to focus on “Thunder in My Heart”. The beat! The emotion! The trippy, pre-digital effects! Brilliant on every level. Seizure inducing, yes, but brilliant none-the-less.

(Not the giant gold “Irene”. Now that’s fame.)
