This was going to go into tomorrows Oz post but I could not bring myself to put it there but bring this 1988 release here, a proper Silly Sunday Song.
A synthpop cover of Little Eva’s classic rejuvenated by Phil Hammond. Sounding very Erasure in the backing too. The “Kohaku Mix” seems to be using a Dead Or Alive backing.
Kylie’s voice being bolstered by Dee Lewis, Mae McKenna, Suzanne Rhatigan and Mike Stock (!) Matt Aitken adds keyboards and guitar.
The elusive “Sankie Mix” speed everything up to HiNRG levels. Done by The Extra Beat Boys, a mixing duo for PWL, originally Jamie Bromfield & Boyowa ‘Yoyo’ Olugbo.
B-side is an album track featuring a bizarre, wobbly bass synth.
