Simple Minds ‎– Speed Your Love To Me (Extended Mix) (12″)

The second single from their hugely successful, “Sparkle In The Rain” album and sounding more like U2 than U2. Produced by Steve Lillywhite (probably a main reason for the similarities) this track didn’t really do it for me back then, it just seemed like a battering ram of noise, a continual chorus. The Extended mix does improve the song, adding some extra parts and even having a Coda at the end. Backed by “Bass Line,” an instrumental version of the “Sparkle In The Rain” album track “White Hot Day,” I had to check it wasn’t Genesis!
