UB40 feat. Chrissie Hynde ‎– Breakfast In Bed (US 12″)

A duet by Hynde versus the ear-jerking jangle of Ali Campbell’s falsetto. Take on the old Lorna Bennett reggae number from 1972 and give it a 1988 rub down. Aiming for and finding the highest reaches of the charts.

So not an offensive cover that has plenty of toasting halfway through by Astro.

Thank God for the quirky dubs. Although the first suffers from a tinny synth lead which does jar with the smoother sound of the horns. The second uses the piano chords as the lead and works better as an instrumental.

  1. After their collaboration with Hynde on I GOT YOU BABE, this made absolutely perfect sense! I love this version!

    Thank you for the remixes!
