Michael Jackson vs Rick Astley

When I was 17, maybe 18, I went to Spain with other members of my high school on a cultural trip for Spanish class. My roommate and I would sneak out of the hotel at night and go shopping in the markets, go to the local bars, and eat at the restaurants. We stumbled into a record store one night and I picked up Madonna’s Ray of Light album and a Michael Jackson remix album that had a lot of cool tracks on it, including mashups with Rick Astley and Billy Ocean. I have been scouring the internet for this album for years and never really found anything. Recently, I did find the Astley mix on a youtube video, and then the actual track on another website.

It’s a great remix and easily one of my favorites. I will probably forever hunt for that CD. For all I know it’s tucked away in a box in my folks’ house in its original sleeve.

It looks like the album I am looking for is a rare remix unreleased album called “He Still Drives Me Wild
