Summer 1982. The unusual friendship between little Elliot and ET the extraterrestrial moves crowds of viewers from all over the world. Tom Selleck speeds down the roads of Hawaii and on CBS screens as Magnum PI. Commodore 64 bursts into the market with great success, while the very first CD players begin to be sold in Japan. At the same time, in the US Laura Branigan's new summertime single Gloria rushes into the Billboard charts as a remake in English of a song of the same name by Italian composer Umberto Tozzi. The remake loses the song's original romantic mood to become "the study of a problematic character," a girl who runs too fast for her steps. Laura Branigan's single will gradually reach the top positions in charts from all over the world, and will be certified as platinum in the United States.
31 years later, the song is now been resumed in an EDM key by dj and electronic music producer Maurice Noah, featuring the voice of emerging singer Glo Ria. The character of Gloria meets a further metamorphosis, in the transition from old Eighties music tapes to today's digital media: drum machines and synthesizers become more frantic and nervous, relocating the dissatisfaction of Gloria's character in the contemporary generation, into a life that runs at a higher speed. In our days, Gloria would potentially be a frequent attender of rave parties, hiding behind a fully altered body, all covered with piercings and tattoos.
