ONCE MORE INTO THE BREACH!!!!!
To promote a charity compilation album of Cole Porter covers called “Red Hot and Blue” which came out in early 1990. This see’s the two having a great time doing this cover which was originally sung by Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. It was produced by Steve Lillywhite and Blondie band member Chris Stein and has a great video directed by Brian Cox. Iggy Pop deliberately hams up the vocals with Harry even telling him to “Piss Off!” as it fades out! SWELLEGANT!
I feel sorry that the Thompson Twins were demoted to the B-side but their version is just a bit strange and not as good. Alannah Currie giving here ice-maiden backing vocals to a groovy but dark back-beat.
NO extended versions or remixes for a change.
