One More Night
Shannon ruled the dance floor at Area, Limelight, and the Palladium in the mid '80s. Few things were better than dancing until 4 in the morning (then somehow being at work at 9.) Brenda Shannon Greene grew up in Brooklyn and was a member of the New York Jazz Ensemble when legendary producer Chris Barbosa had her sing on "Let the Music Play" which was a club sensation and eventually a million-selling crossover hit. This is a remix of her second smash single "Give Me Tonight." The recording of it is awful (sorry!) because it is off a tape I made from my friend Diane's 12" single twenty-two years ago. But it's so great, I figured you should hear it regardless.

Give Me Tonight
