Sweet freedom - Michael McDonald

The soundtrack of the 1986 American movie 'Running scared' featured several wellknown artists. Kim Wilde delivered 'Say you really want me', Patti Labelle sang 'I know what I want' and Michael McDonald performed 'Sweet freedom'.

The former Doobie Brothers member also managed to have a worldwide hit with his song, because it was released as a single. 'Sweet freedom' reached number 12 in the UK singles chart and number 2 in the Dutch Top 40.

On my own - Patti Labelle and Michael McDonald

Although 'On my own' was a duet between Patti Labelle and Michael McDonald, both were in separate cities when they recorded their individual parts. They were mixed together during mastering. This was reflected in the music video, which showed Labelle and McDonald performing the song on two different locations. 'On my own' couldn't have been a more apt title for this song.

The track was taken from LaBelle's album 'Winner in you' and written and produced by Burt Bacharach and his former wife Carole Bayer Sager. The single reached number 2 in the Dutch Top 40 and the UK singles chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 448
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, August 26, 1986
Cost: 4 guilders
