Ahhhh cd singles… *gazes wistfully at collection and can’t remember when I last bought one
I agree with you completely but not Peter Cox... The King Is Dead was far too different for a single in late 1986, it would have done the same as it did as third single. I would have gone with,
From Baltimore To Paris
I Want To Hear It From You
Masque of Love
Four hits def!
I recently bought all the Abba singles, Second To Midnight by Kylie and Take My Breath by The Weeknd. I really wish more artists would do those, especially the ones who have been releasing physical singles for decades.
I wish they'd start putting bonus tracks on them again, 2021 trend seemed to be one trackers.

NOW That’s What I Call 12” 80s: Remixed: Amazon.co.uk: CDs & Vinyl
I hadn't really bothered with these NOW 12" sets, until @nlgbbbblth alerted me to the fact that they have Queen 12" mixes that aren't always easy to find, so now I will look at the tracklistings more closely!
ONJ and Sandra and Frida / Agnetha ???????? Wow. Bangers.
Doesnt look like much rare though? Wrap Her Up?
On first glance wasn't going to get this but CD3 is amazing - I don't have Voyage Voyage (PWL Britmix) on CD and great to see the likes of ONJ, Dollar, Bucks Fizz, Exposé, Sandra, Pat Benatar, Agnetha and Frida. A bit of variety from the usual suspects is always welcome.
I've also noticed this has Easy Lover 12" - someone wrote to me on my blog about tracking that one down. This will be easier and cheaper to get than the So80s comp it's also featured on.
The first French pop song I fell in love with.
i will buy just for the eurythmics, i am sure i have everything else.
Me too. 1988 was a heady year for French pop in the UK with Desireless' Voyage Voyage, Vanessa Paradis' Joe le Taxi, France Gall's Ella, elle l'a and Debut de Soirée's Nuit de Folie.
The first three were released in 1987 though.
Voyage Voyage and Joe le Taxi were hits in the UK in 1988 as well you know.
That’s why I don’t get them anymore. A month later and the album with exactly the same version is released. My wallet appreciates the change but I do miss the extra tracks and mixes.
First time on cd for The Eurythmics and Elton John songs.
Is Wrap Her Up the PWL Remix? Delighted if so.
Wrap her up is on Elton True Love cd single EJSCX 32
That version on that cd is the Album version.This will be the first time the 12 inch mix is on cd.
