Walk like an Egyptian - The Bangles

I was a bit surprised to find this 7" single, as it is different from the 'normal' release of 'Walk like an Egyptian', which features the track 'Angels don't fall in love' on the B-side. This UK pressing features a remix of the A-side, which as far as I know has not been released on any other format since then.

The single was written by Liam Sternberg. It was originally offered to Toni Basil, who turned the track down. David Kahne, who was producing the Bangles' album 'Different light', took the song to them, and they agreed to record it. Susanna Hoffs, Vicki Peterson and Michael Steele all sing lead vocals on a verse. 'Walk like an Egyptian' went on to become a number 1 hit in the USA, Germany, Australia and the Netherlands.

My collection: 7" single no. 4214
Found: Record fair, Utrecht, November 21, 2009
Cost: 0,66 euro
Tracks: 'Walk like an Egyptian' / 'Walk like an Egyptian (Ozymandias 7" remix)'
