Song of the Day #1630

Song of the Day: Dr. Beat, words and music by Enrique A. Garcia, was the first international single released by Miami Sound Machine, led by Gloria Estefan, from their first English-language album, "Eyes of Innocence" (1984). The song reached the top 20 of the U.S. Hot Dance Club chart, only a tiny hint of the many mega-hits to come from MSM and Gloria Estefan, in her long solo career (and featured as well in the 2015 musical, "On Your Feet! The Story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan"). Check out the original video single, the full 12" extended mix, and a Mylo vs. Miami Sound Machine Mash-up of "Drop the Pressure" and "Dr. Beat" [YouTube links].
