Another post care of Mike B and the final track to be released off one of my favourite OMD albums, “The Pacific Age.” Speeded up with some nice bass overdubs by Rhett Davies, this is a bit of a forgotten single by the band and again smacks of the record company wringing the last sales out of the album. Many fans prefer the more subdued Album version which is on here for comparison. I quite like the brighter 12″ mix with the sly reference to the 12″ mix of Depeche Mode’s “Strangelove” at the start.
