The follow up to “I Touch Roses” , an interesting message which is still relevant today. A touch of “Push It” beats (Salt n Pepa)
In the capable hands of Ivan Ivan and Steve Peck it is a pure synth sound for 1985 with a knowing retro feel to it. The Bells are actually real and not sampled , being played by band member Ted Ottaviano.
The Dub mix is a little harder for dancefloor purposes and the pick of the bunch.
“Book Of Love” sounds a bit New Order-ish, more Indie sounding but still pure synths.
Simple but effective until those bloody doorbells kick in, I blame Mike Oldfield.
