This is pretty much the sentiment of the day, since MADE IN AMERICA is this weekend, complete with the unlikely dual headliners Nine Inch Nails and Beyonce — that is to say, a dream lineup.

Anyway. Nu Shooz, a Portland-based husband-and-wife duo, released this synth masterpiece back in 1985 to little fanfare — that is, until it was remixed by a Dutch producer (hence the “Dutch Mix”). The Shooz apparently haven’t slowed since their freestyle glory days; their most recent record came out in 2012, believe it or not.

Much as I love “I Can’t Wait,” I figured I’d thrown in a bonus for you — their video for “Point of No Return” (not to be confused with the Expose song of the same name) is everything you’d expect from a solid ’80s clip: impressive hair and scads of shoes undulating in a ballet studio via the magic of stop motion.
