I was never a fan of the 12inch single and hated White Lines and Blue Monday but then I heard some I liked. Here they are:
Duran Duran The Reflex Dance Mix
The first 12 inch I loved and that kinda got me more interested in them so I started to buy some. I still have a few today in my little collection. The Reflex though remains my favourite. Others include
Howard Jones Hide and Seek Extended
Hide and Seek is a lovely 12 inch single it really is. Nearly 9 minutes long and well worth a listen.
Ultravox The Voice Extended
A classic Ultravox track and even better with the extended version. I don’t have my copy of the vinyl sadly and have this on my iPod.
The Alarm Sixty Eight Guns Album Version
Not a full 12 inch but the full version from the album rather than the single and one of my favourite Alarm tracks.
Duran Duran The Wild Boys Extended
One of my favourite Duran Duran songs and I remember queuing outside Chalmers and Joy in Dundee on the day this came out as I was desperate to hear it, the 12 inch is brilliant.
Howard Jones What is Love Extended
Another brilliant extended version of one of my favourite Howard Jones songs, I did have the vinyl but now it’s just on the iPod.
Pink Floyd Another Brick in the Wall Extended
I loved the extended version of this song from the Wall album rather than the single that was released, this version is so much more Pink Floyd. If you haven’t heard definitely have a listen.
Bonnie Tyler Total Eclipse of the Heart Extended
Another extended version that I thought was better than the single release and a track I still really like to this day.
Irene Cara Fame Extended
One of my favourite soundtrack albums of all time and I really enjoy the extended version of the title track. Great song.
Frankie Goes to Hollywood Two Tribes Extended
Frankie Goes to Hollywood made some of the most iconic 12 inch singles but the one I liked and have on my iPod is Two Tribes. It just goes on and on and for some reason I just really got into it.
So just some of my favourite 12 inch singles.
