In the name of love '88 - Thompson Twins
In the name of love was originally a song by the Thompson Twins released in 1982. After that, the group made it big with hits such as Doctor doctor, You take me up and Hold me now. While lead singer Tom Bailey apparently suffered a nervous breakdown, they continued to release music such as the less successful 1987 album 'Close to the bone' and a couple of compilation albums in 1988.
'The best of Thompson Twins: Greatest Mixes' featured a 1988 remix by Shep Pettibone, which was also released as a single. It peaked at number 46 in the UK singles chart.
