[continued from previous post]
We proceed in listing the many singles in many territories that Simple Minds issued like dandelion seeds in the 21st century.
- Home  4:03
- Bird On A Wire 3:50
Finally a real single with a B-side to keep us interested! Too bad it’s a cut that didn’t make “Our Secrets Are The Same.” Not memorable, and not even the Leonard Cohen classic [which would have been better].
- Home 4:25
- Mighty Joe Moon 3:43
- Home (Trixton Porteño Mix) 5:40
The second CD had a leftover Grant Lee Phillips tracks probably from the “Neon Lights” sessions. The video was included as a bonus as well as the extended remix of the A-side, not a dance-oriented DJ mix this time.
- Stranger (London Mix) 4:06
- Bird On A Wire 3:54
- Too Much Television 4:19
- Stranger 4:09
This was a better choice for a single from the “Black + White 050505” album than the tepid “Home” was. Another Euro-only single with an extra non-LP B-side that only appeared here. This is hard to track down, so I have not heard “Too Much Television.”
- Different World (The Scumfrog Remix) 8:00
- Different World (Benny & P. Ursin DJs vs Phunk Investigation Rmx) 6:47
- Different World (DJ Moussa Clarke) 6:54
- Different World (Phunk Investigation Magma Rmx) 7:44
Another, better single choice in a quartet of DJ mixes.
- Different World (So Phat! Club Mix) 8:36
- Different World (So Phat!s Sonicblast Merged) 7:53
2007 brought another Italian remix of “Different World.”
- Rockets (radio edit) 3:27
- Rockets (Gesamtkunstwerk Mix) 3:17
By 2008 the download-only single reared its ugly head. The Gesamtkunstwerk mix of this tune was obtainable only if your lived in the UK. Grrrrrr.
Next: …More to come
