Would "CATCH ME I'M FALLING" by PRETTY POISON be considered freestyle?

What's up PPL,
As always a good debate topic,
1987 Catch Me I'm Falling {Pretty Poison} I do belive that track to be Freestyle, that is how I have it listed, also that track is on the Thump Records Freestyle Explosion Comp Cd Vol 1... and prob others I'm sure !
Some would say it's more Electro / I remember Chillin to that song when it was released....
One track that always comes to mind is : {Paris By Air} Voices In Your Head allot of folks say Electro / Freestyle
What r your thoughts ?

its sorta boarderline. i worked as part of prety poisons road managment team and they were thrown into the freestyle world but I just consider them "dance/pop" along with tiffay, taylor dayne and debbie gibson.

That is not freestyle. I hate it when peeps try saying it is. It's like they think that if you associate freestyle with pop enough times that people will view freestyle as pop music thus making it more marketable :rolleyes:, so lame.

remove the commercial success factor of such a track, and the fact that it was firstly an independent label club release, it IS freestyle. just like nightime, and my favourite when i look into your eyes.

I see what you're saying, but not everything that was an independent label club release back in the 80s was necessarily a freestyle record. One must look at the drum sequencing & just that alone would eliminate it from being freestyle. Nevermind the vocal arrangement. There is a very distinct difference between 80s pop & freestyle music.
