the other remix of
be near me.

this was on the b-side of
the original remix in the US,
but not the UK. weird.

but it would appear on many,
many,many other releases,
such as vanity kills, ocean
blue, etc.

it still is not on cd.

i like the vocoder, electro sound
of it.

next up,
the re-release version of
how to be a zillionaire.

this was the second release of
the zillionaire single, mostly in US
and Canada, after the hit ‘be near me’.

it’s a more straightforward mix,
that is like the album, but extended.

next up,
the instrumental version of
how to be a millionaire.

this was the b-side to the
original 7″ version of how
to be a millionaire.

it was only found there,
and not on the 12″.

it has not been released on cd
yet either.

it’s a basic instrumental.

Vanity Kills(UK)

ImageImageImageImage

 

next up,
the uk release of vanity kills.

this was the third single from the album.

Two music videos were made by the band ABC. The UK video shows the four band members moving
against a dark background, using simple stop motion camera tricks. The US version, directed by
Peter Care, has a spoken prologue and epilogue, and presents Martin Fry and Mark White as noir
detectives, investigating a variety of shady American characters.

this is a nice little mix, that is different
from the album version.

quite a few other mixes were made of this song.
with an initial mix ‘the abigails party mix’ being
on the original cassette and cd.

the b-side was a strange instrumental, with
a few vocals, called judy’s jewels.
