In some countries, including the UK, Ireland and New Zealand, the band was credited as 'Starsound' and the medley itself was named "Stars on 45". It is to date the longest titled song to ever chart in Billboard and was conveniently shortened to "Stars on 45 Medley", or "'Medley' by Stars on 45". The reason for the Barstool - Statues - Aux title was copyright Obnox - The Juke That Sat By The Door for the use of The Beatles ' songs.
In the US, the single also peaked at number 18 on the dance chart. The next week, Carnes' song regained its number 1 status for an additional four weeks. The origin of the single was the Netherlands where numerous bootleg disco singles were floating around.
Willem van Kootenthe owner of one of the copyrights, decided to make a similar, legitimate record of a 12" single titled "Let's Do It in the 80s Great Hits" credited to a Canadian group called Passion though the snippets of songs were taken from the original recordings. The Beatles Hi Honey Ho - Daddy Cool - Teenage Heaven was later Take Your Time (Illicit Remix) - Cory Cash - House All Stars to a full minute album side.
The album version of the song moved "Venus" and "Sugar Sugar" to Side Two into a different medley, and added several more Beatles songs as well as a second instrumental extract from George Harrison 's " My Sweet Lord " Take Your Time (Illicit Remix) - Cory Cash - House All Stars even a fleeting reference to new wave band Sparks ' " Beat the Clock ," for a total length of about 15 minutes.
A detailed listing of the source material can be found in the Long Play Album article. The song became also a huge success in the UK where it kicked off a craze for medleys, with a large number of records in the Stars on 45 mould reaching the UK Top 40 in For example, The Hollies recorded "Hollidaze", a medley of some of their previous hits, which reached 28 on the UK charts with Graham Nash and Eric Haydock briefly rejoining the group in September to promote the record.
Likewise, in the US the song started a medley craze that lasted for about a year and introduced not only other medleys by Stars on 45, but medleys by the Beatles themselvesThe Beach Boysthe Royal Philharmonic OrchestraLarry Elgart and His Manhattan Swing Orchestra, as well as others.
Only the opening guitar riff is used in the medley. An extended version of the "Stars on 45" intro and finale was put on the flip side of the single. The success of the single in North America even resulted in Radio Records rush-releasing a second single for the US market. The second Beatles medley single was not released in the Netherlands or any other parts of the world. The Beatles medley was remixed and re-released in a house music version in Europe in under the title "Stars on '89 Remix", then featuring an alternate selection of Beatles tracks taken from the album version of the medley, coupled with a new "Stars on 45" theme called "Rock the House".
The single was remixed and reproduced by Danny van Passel and Rutti Kroese and released on the Red Bullet label as a 7", 12" and CD single, all formats backed with an extended version of the "Rock the House" theme.
