Kiss me - Stephn Tin Tin Duffy

The original version of 'Kiss me' was released in 1982. Stephen 'Tin Tin' Duffy tried to have a hit with the song two more times. First he released a remixed version in 1983 which was just as unsuccessful as the original version - even though famous remixer François Kevorkian did his work on the track - but the 1985 version was a top 5 hit in the UK. The Art of Noise-esque sound must have helped a lot.

This version became a Europe-wide hit, and was played endlessly on radio and television. I didn't really want to have the single anymore after that. Now, more than two decades later, this double pack was really great to get. And I have to admit, it's great to hear 'Kiss me' again - even in the 1985 version.
