Love of The Common People (Extended Club Mix) (1983) (5'51) - Paul Young.
Written by John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins.
Produced by Laurie Latham for LOL Productions Ltd.
(P) 1983 CBS Inc.
"The record company wanted to put Love Will Tear Us Apart out as a single, but I felt it was a great album track and it would help sell the album. So I suggested we re-release Love of The Common People because it already had sleigh bells on it [it was re-released in November '83]. We put them on as a sound, not because we had any thoughts of releasing it at Christmas, but looking back, it seems like it was perfect". - Quote by Paul Young, May 2013, from the liner notes for the 2-CD collection, Remixes And Rarities, Cherry Pop Records, Cat. No. CRPOPD128, released in 2013.
