Dr. Otto’s “Love Junky” contains a special piece of the 80s that’s easy to overlook. There’s some early-rap style happening here, and the percussion channels cheesy, but heavy, dance scenes in epic teen movies like Mac and Me and Teen Witch.
Otto has quite the backstory as an accomplished Jazz musician, producer and composer, but this smooth number is our first introduction to his freaky funk. We're pleased to call it today’s lost classic.
