    This single was, in fact, the third one from “Human Racing” (after “I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me” and “Wouldn’t It Be Good”..

    ,-)

    third single but second hit. Nik’s debut I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me flopped first time round, and was re-released after Dancing Girls to ironically become his highest charting and biggest selling single.

    Nik is fabulous!

    Fantastic 12”er. I love the Special Hi NRG 12” too – Nik Kershaw was and still is soooo good – I wish they would release a box set of cd singles like Duran and the like did with all the mixes etc…

    Good choice, Paul 🙂

    Rather confusingly, MCA also issued a remix using the same catalogue number: NIKT 3
    DMC’s Alan Coulthard did a ‘Special Hi-Energy Remix’ of “Dancing Girls (7’25”)
    Lots of beats for breakdancing?!

    It’s listed on Discogs and featured on youtube

    but, not sadly not included on any cd compilation!
