Re: Belinda Carlisle singles rate (votes due May 24)

Prepping to vote now... Dancing in the City is new to me, was it on the Belinda album??
 
Re: Belinda Carlisle singles rate (votes due May 24)

Are we not counting Prayer For Everyone? (and actually I Plead Insanity) Was promo only like I Stil Love Him.

Vision Of You - are we solely going on the '91 remix?

So looking forward to seeing her on Saturday - Have been a fan since 1996 (In Too Deep was the first single I bought) yes this will be the first time I'm off to see her live!

I think "Dancing in the City" was on a soundtrack... RYM tells me it was a single in Italy.

Ah, OK. Was confused as the YouTube video has the cover of her first LP.

In the end, three 10s given out, all to tracks from the same album, which was no real surprise to me.

Hmm. I included I Still Love Him because it was a single in the UK, and it looked like A Prayer for Everyone was only a single in Sweden. Similarly with Remember September - the only single on Discogs is a 12" of dance mixes. I've never heard of I Plead Insanity being a single, but if it was I'm quite delighted as it's one of my favorites off Live Your Life Be Free. And yes, it's just the remix of Vision of You. It looked to me like that was the only version released as a single, and I figured that even if it wasn't, this rate did not need two versions of the same song.

I always assumed I Plead Insanity was just a major flop. It was on her first Best Of and the significant gap in time between Half the World and Little Black Book charting looks like it would've accommodated another single.

The 91 remix charted 30 places lower than the original version!

You may be thrilled to know that there was a whole video done for I Plead Insanity! On the LYLBF re issue

Apparently I am a mess.

I'll add them to the list, along with "Since You've Gone" (which Wikipedia says was a promo single in the UK and US), but for anyone who's already sent in their votes, you don't need to send votes for them if you don't want to.

Sorry, didn't mean to come across as rude! The '91 remix is actually better than the original version.
