One of my absolute Italo favorites. I heard it in the middle of the night for the first time (on a pirate station of course, such music was never played onn the regular stations) when I had just finished my 14-months military service in (then) West-Germany close to the East-German border (I'm from Holland). I was completely blown away and went out to search for it the next day (and found it and bought it). I still have it in very good condition, with the picture sleeve that you see on the first video here (club mix 1985).

the zyx-copy I have (a very clean one) doesn't sound very good. Don't know how the copies on the other Labels Sound like, but I wouldn' recommend buying the Zyx-copy. But perhaps they couldn't record it better back in the 80's?

Let me start by saying the B-Side is NOT a dub version. It is the original B-Side version from the "For you for only you" 12"
Talk about a disappointment.........

The club version is an emotional and naive uptempo italo-disco-meets-hi-NRG song that sounds like a dream encounter between New Order's "Perfect Kiss" and other mid-80s dancefloor-oriented explorations, Patrick Cowley and Bobby O, with a nice structure/progression and synth melodies to die for. A classic.

Maybe it's just the copy that I have, but I don't think this is a very good pressing--it seems like it was made from a low-bitrate mp3 or something and the sound is rather fuzzy and indistinct. Not 100% terrible but if vinyl doesn't offer an improved sound over a digital version then what's the point? Bootlegs are one thing, but poorly made ones are another. Great track but this release is probably not worth it given the overall quality. Now, someone please license the track and release an official one!
