    I just got my new turntable hooked up to my CDR and I spent all day burning my 12" mixes to CD. My favorites are the Cameron Paul-CCCP American 'n' Soviets mixes and ABC - Be Near Me

    I have several Falco 12" as well. Now that I have my turntable working again I am going to hunt for good 12"vinyl.

    The 12" mix are great and I really enjoy the way they could tweak the song just enough and still keep it true to it's original. I orderd the Erasure box sets yesterday Flix they should be here by Wednesday!

    Those box-sets are so good. I think all eighties bands should do that. There are so many good remixes and Live versions in those boxes.

    What is your favorite Remix of Be Near Me, Lostboy? I like the Munich Disco mix.

    Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order. The 12" remix was much better than the album version, and if I remember.. was the version that became the hit

    Re: 12" Extended Version

    Favorite 80's 12" mixes (off the top of my head) :

    Level 42 - "Something About You" (Shep Pettibone U.S. Remix) - much better than the Mendelsohn 12" Mix IMO.
    Pet Shop Boys - "Opportunities (Let's Make Lots Of Money)" (Shep Pettibone Remix) - The mix on Disco ain't half bad neither.
    J.M. Silk - "Let The Music Take Control" (Club Mix) - This is just an energetic track with clean intro and breaks.
    Times Two - "Strange But True" (12" Vocal Mix - Steve Peck) - added instrumentation to this fun track.
    Yazoo - "Situation" (Re-Recorded Remix) - I FINALLY found this one on the B-Side of an import of "State Farm". I like it much better than the album version they put on the U.S. 12".
    Depeche Mode - "Strangelove" (Blind Mix) - like this one best out of all the remixes. The Pain Mix is second.

    UN-Favorite 80's 12" mixes:

    Frankie Goes To Hollywood - "Relax" (New York Mix) - Not much use to me without two copies. Only decent break is 2 minutes into the track.
    RUN-D.M.C. - "You Be Illin' " - Again, one decent break in the middle of the song. Two copies needed to re-mix on the fly.
    Prince - "Batdance" (Batmix) - Bleh.

    Thank heaven for DJ-Friendly Remix Services.

    Re: 12" Extended Version

    "The Dominatrix sleeps tonight" remix is available on the Rhino series "Just can't get enough: New Wave hits of the 80's". It is on one of the sub-sets called "New Wave dance". However, if you are looking for the original record, that I can't help with.

    you're dispicable!

    Re: 12" Extended Version

    Some of my favourite 12" singles/remixes

    Soft Cell had some excellent 12" singles out in the 80s, such as "Bedsitter", "Torch" and "Say Hello Wave Goodbye", but the best one has to be the 12" version of "Tainted Love" mixed with "Where Did Our Love Go" - excellent stuff.

    Honourable mentions also to
    B Movie - Nowhere Girl
    Fashion - Streetplayer
    Fad Gadget - Saturday Night Special

    Bend Sinister
