N.B. Love Comes Quickly (Disco Mix) (1986) (7'38) is the same mix as Love Comes Quickly (Shep Pettibone Mastermix) (1986) (7'38) - Pet Shop Boys that may be found elsewhere on this blog.

"Disaster struck quickly. Our favourite song we'd written up to then and it flopped just about everywhere, crawling to number 19 in Britain. It's still one of our favourites." - Quote from the front CD insert of the 1991 compilation, Discography.

Love Comes Quickly was the third song released as a single from the Boy's debut album Please. Released in 1986, the song failed to repeat the success of West End Girls which had been a No. 1 hit single in the U.K. and U.S. charts. Instead, Love Comes Quickly peaked at No. 19 on the U.K. singles chart and at No. 62 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. In the U.S. Billboard Dance / Club Play Songs chart, the song peaked at No. 10.

Love Comes Quickly (Disco Mix) is the same mix that appears on the Pet Shop Boys' first remix album Disco released in 1986.
