Kevin had his demons and Dexys did almost nothing for decades but then returned with an album called One Day I’m Going to Soar - this included songs like this one which is strange but (I think) wonderful and utterly unlike anybody else:
As far as I know the old mix is still available. The new mix is part of a 3-Disc set which includes a disc of B-Sides and a whole live performance from 1982. I prefer the new one but I’m glad the original is still there.Thanks for this, over the last few years I have found myself doing deep dives. I never considered these guys. I remember when this song came out. I was 11 or 12 and loved this song but didn't have an album so didn't hear anything else. Streaming has not been a boon for musicians other than now I can dial in an entire catalogue and loose myself for days. I just played the video of the remix. It does sound fuller.
Also, we all look so old...
edit: but I do hope they keep the old versions and don't consider these songs as released in 2022. I find that annoying when a group remixes an old album, pulls the original, then says it was released not. It messes up my journey through an artists catalogue.
