An early example of the New York Electro sound, "Infatuation" was one of the earliest influences of what would become known as freestyle; the tempo of this song is 122 beats per minute. Infatuation was written and produced by Eddie Colon and Fred Zarr with lyrics by W.Negron. The song was a NYC summer anthem and received heavy rotation on both New York and Miami Radio and clubs. Infatuation was a particular favorite at the Funhouse where DJ John "Jellybean" Benitez, who actually "broke" the track, rocked the house.
The track can be found on various compilation albums, including:
