Three of my own today.
Not had a ZTT twelve on here for a while so a later release from Frankie, 1987 to be exact.
Produced by Trevor Horn and Steve Lipson, at the time the bubble had really burst for the band and the lukewarm reception of their second album, “Liverpool” was the beginning of the end. No amount of polished production, expensive video and gimmickry could save them. This was their final single.
This was an overlooked released, taking the theme that we are all animals anyway. (The “Use A Condom” message on the back sleeve shows the AIDs enlightened time it was released.) The definite, “long” version has a ton of stuff going on (as you’d expect) with more orchestra than I remembered back in the day.
The “voiceless” version does have an opening vocal, then another separate vocal/musical part and then the semi-instrumental, how very ZTT.
It has a proper B-side in the slow, melancholic “The Waves”, with Holly in fine voice.
