Wouldn't it be good if we could get the original? This is NOT the original recording you remember.... It seems that you just can't get the original recording anywhere online...

Here is what Nik said regarding this re-recording..

"I was asked by a U.S. company called San Juan Music to rerecord WIBG. The theory was that they would license it to record companies who specialize in tracks rerecorded by the original artists. These would turn up on budget compilations / promotional giveaways etc. The brief was to make it sound as much like the original as possible. That was always going to be difficult doing it on my own with just a laptop but I gave it a good shot. It was never meant to try and "improve on the original. I think it's been used on a couple of compilations and the odd TV soundtrack."

Me personally, the original is nostalgic and the keyboards and programmed effects make it a version that can't be topped, however, what this re-recorded version does do is highlight Nik's superb vocals some 25 years further into his solo career (26 to be pedantic as studio recording was actually in 1983). Particually like the horns used in this version so it still ticks the right boxes for me.

Discovered this track years ago when I started to get into the 80's It has one of those typical 80's music videos with the cheesy special effects, namely Nik in a glowing white suit.

The beauty of this song lies in the mix of the keyboards, electric guitar, bass, and even the drums. They sounds compliment each other well along with some great but simple lyrics and the extremely complimentary The song just flows from start to finish. I usually have to listen to it several times as I get lost in song and the message.

It's not the album version of the song, which I always prefer to other edits. However, it is basically the same song, but about 20 seconds longer.

I am trying to get in contact with some friends in the UK to get me the version they have there, which sounds like it is the original version. This one sounds too cleaned up and inorganic.

Great song from the 80's I heard it the other day on online radio which plays 80's songs.
Has a nice horn section to it,and some well placed guitar enhancements in rhythm.

this was the anthem for Pretty in Pink, and has not lost its panache in all these years. Eerie backgrounds. Vocals a little shaky from what I remember, but still a good song
