    Paul, I’ve been looking for this for years! The long version is yet another gem that remains buried in Sony BMG’s vault, left to gather dust and deteriorate (unless, of course, the original master has been lost). This is one of my favorite ’80s songs. It is somewhat overlooked and overshadowed by “Voices Carry”, which I love as well. “What About Love” used to get quite a bit of airplay way back then, but it seems to have disappeared from many radio station playlists. I love the sound of ‘Til Tuesday. Aimee Mann … such a unique, beautiful voice. The long version of “What About Love” is very rare! I think that I stumbled upon it many years ago in a low MP3 vinyl rip quality, but I know that your rip will be much better (in FLAC, after all!) Thank you again for sharing! 🙂

    You’re welcome Bellenger1981! I don’t understand why so many songs by great artists are not played anymore on retro stations it seems they have one list of songs that they play from and that is it. Such a shame.

    Paul, unfortunately, you are correct. ’80s retro radio stations today now only play a handful of songs. Why is this? There are hundreds upon hundreds (maybe thousands) of songs that were legitimate hits which never receive airplay anymore. Apparently, it boils down to research. Does research only show that people like about one hundred ’80s songs (the extent of their playlists). I’m not sure if I believe that.

    We have the same problem here in Canada. Each radio station is playing what the competitor is having on its playlist. I’ve been collecting records for years and I can tell that about 99% of the new releases “disappear” after a short appearance on the charts. Blogs like this one help keep the music alive. The web plays a major role in preserving some atrocities (who likes Disco duck???)but the cream always rises to the top thanks to people like DjPaulT. Great job Dude.

    Mario you are very welcome. I am one of the ones who likes “Disco Duck'(lol) but my taste is very eclectic. I love to post variety you never know what will show up next but that is what makes BTg fun.

    Wow. Thanks Paul. I almost this song. Aimee sounded a lot like Chrissie Hynde. Keep up the new wave stuff. Thanks.

    Andy glad I was able to post it if I remember correctly you asked me about ‘Til Tuesday” mixes a while ago.

    It’s been drizzling here the entire morning, providing the perfect setting to play this melancholic tune that features Aimee’s chilling vocals!
    What an awesome rarity this is, Paul! Thanks!

    As for retro stations playing the same old songs, I wouldn’t know coz I’ve given up listening to radio anymore. Ever since radio formatting started in the late 80s and early 90s, the way music is played and the eclectic selection of DJs have totally disappeared. No variety of music get excited over. No personality of DJ to shine through. zzzzzzzz….

    We have been having eartquakes here for the last three days very odd for Oklahoma a 5.6 magnitude which struck on Sunday the strongest in our states history and dozens of after shocks. Just a few minutes ago anther 4.7 plus we are experiencing tornadoes and heavy rain. Weird, Weird, Weird! I don’t listen to radio anymore either everytime I turn it on Bon Jovi is playing they must be paying radio to have them on repeat (lol). Glad I was able to fill your request Ric.

    Weather is sure freaky all over the world. Never experienced an earthquake ever in my life so I can’t imagine how I’d react, more likely OVER-react! Nonetheless, please stay safe, Paul!

    I think two big reasons a lot of gems don’t get played are because these gems are either 12″ remixes (most radio don’t play them) or/and they are only available in vinyl (radio don’t play vinyls anymore).

    Oh, and one more reason, they are too dependent on those Music Service CDs…very limited and only the “Big Hits” are included. *rolleyes*

    thanks once again, this is from one of my favorite albums of all time! i echo the general sentiment that it’s too bad that great songs like this just seem to “slip away” out of public consciousness…so glad you are helping these gems be heard again!

    LOVE this post, Paul. Thank you! I had no idea that ‘Til Tuesday had any extended versions. This one is truly a gem!

    I agree with everyone about the state of radio – it is a shame the way great music is pushed aside and forgotten while songs that everyone has heard a million times dominates.

    Thanks again for this rarity – it sounds great.

    Be safe Paul. I hope the weather and mother nature calm down.

    Wow! One of my favorite songs of this band, there’s nothing better than this single in it’s extended version..! actually it’s very weird that the 12″ version of the huge hit voices carry is not as long as it should be…
    Thanks for sharing this with us Paul! 🙂

    Wow I didn’t even know ‘Til Tuesday had any 12″ singles. My favorite from this album though is still probably Coming Up close.

    “Coming Up Close” is simply beautiful. I love the sound of that song.

    This is one of my all-time 80s favorites. It has held up incredibly well. Aimee’s alto and fierce vocals plus the lush instrumentation make it a pure delight. Thank you so much for posting a flawless version of the extended mix.

    I see that the Japan versions of the Coming Up Close single are the only sources of the b-side Yesterday.
