Totally Mixed Up Presents: Let Me In - The Best Of Mike Francis - A Mega Mix By THE BEATMEISTER

Been doin' some experimentation with this new filehosting site that my buddy, OEV, recommended to me a couple of weeks back and I will be trying it out for today's upload. Just click on the play button below for the mixset preview.

His sudden death came as a shock to me, so as my personal tribue to the late great Francesco Puccioni, best known as Mike Francis (April 26, 1961 – January 30, 2009), especially to his Pinoy fans, I've compiled almost all of his greatest hits and the not-so-popular ones, and mixed it in one single set for every fan's (including myself) listening pleasure.

Have included all of my faves from Mr. Puccioni namely "Survivor," "Features Of Love," "Friends," "Suddenly Back To Me," and the best of 'em all, "Let Me In."

Here's a short bio on the late great Mike Francis. Francesco Puccioni, was an Italian singer and composer, best known for his 1982 disco hit "Survivor".

He was born in Florence. Mike carried through his activity as an author and composer with great success, other than for himself as in "Let Me In", for other artists, in this particular case for Amii Stewart in "Friends" (already on top of both Black American and English charts) and "Together", where he is again author-composer.


Francis formed his first band at age 14 with schoolmates from l'Istituto di Studi Americano in Rome. He had his first hit with "Survivor" in 1982 and went on to record ten studio albums. Francis died January 30, 2009 of lung cancer in Rome. (quoted from wikipedia).

With these 2 most requested anthems, "Let Me In" and "Friends" played on and on by DJs in parties way back in the 80s, Mike Francis will surely be missed by his Filipino fans, both then and now. This mix is a must-have for anyone, who has enjoyed his music. Rest in peace brother.
