Anyone in search of the song "High School Confidential" on CD should check the running time of the song first on whatever disc they're thinking of buying: Make sure you're buying a copy that has the full original running time of around 3:22-3:25 and NOT one that runs about 10 seconds shorter than that.

Back in '85 this best-of comp came out and contained a bastardized version of the song which not only sounded like crap...but also had the last 10 seconds cut out! They instead replaced it with some really bad repeat-echo fade effect just as Carole says the last "Confidential" so it repeats and fades "ConfiDential..dential...tial...tial...tial........." instead of the real ending. Really dumb. I originally thought it might have been because the end of the master tape got damaged...but then later on (thankfully) the full intact original version surfaced on a few CD's. Unfortunately though so did the bad version.

The best copies to get are on these discs:

-The '95 remaster of the original album
-This UK best-of comp (which came out the same year as the Canadian 1985 best-of that had the bad version on it...so the English could get it done right but the Canadians couldn't with their own country's material?! Ok then...)
-this random German CD single from 1988 (Shares the same artwork as the bad 1985 Canadian best-of, but this release seems to contain the right version).
