a-ha – The Blood That Moves The Body (12″)

a-hasocksOnwards to 1988 now and a forgotten gem of a track by a-ha. Off their “Stay On These Roads” album this has orchestral backing and reminds ,in places, of YES’s “Owner Of A Lonely Heart.” This compares favourably to their own track,  “The Living Daylights.”

More of a full version rather than an extended mix it was favourite live track by the band. B-side comprises of the LP Version and another Pål Waaktaar penned ballad, “There’s never a forever thing” which is my personal favourite, showcasing the amazing range of Mr. Harket.

Wax – Bridge To Your Heart (12″)

waxytotpOnwards to 1987 now and the big hit from Wax, (Andrew Gold (R.I.P) & Graham Gouldman) a more intellectual Go West. Andrew Gold plays the band leader, counting the band in and requesting “Horns” , the “band” being all synths and electronics. The 12″ mix has a few extra bits with a breakdown of the track at the end. The soulful funk of “Heaven in Her Bed” was a good taster for the album “American English”

A “Bridge to Your Heart” (The Unabridged version) — 5:15
B1 “Bridge to Your Heart” (7″ version) — 3:51
B2 “Heaven in Her Bed” — 5:36
