80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Rick Springfield – Dance This World Away (Remix) (German 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on February 24th, 2012


“Dance This World” was a single released in 1985 by Australian singer-songwriter, musician, and actor Rick Springfield. The song was the third single from the album “Tao” following the hits “Celebrate Youth” and “State Of The Heart”. An accompanying music video was filmed and directed by David Fincher but the single failed to chart.

This 12″ is extremely rare because it was only released in Germany and the “Dance This World Away” remix has not appeared on CD. The single also includes the 7″ versionit of “Affair Of The Heart” from the album “Living In Oz” and the ballad “My Father’s Chair.

    I didn’t have this mix. I love it! Affair of the Heart is one of his best songs as well. Thanks! I have this urge to beg – and I don’t like to beg – so let me just say that I hope to see more Rick Springfield 12″ers in the future. (woz prays that it’s sooner than later) 😛 hahaha

    Ok, thanks a million, DJPT!

    I love posts like this one, too! I never knew that this existed! Another rarity makes an excellent transfer to digital. Thank you, Paul! 🙂

    Feanor I don’t think there was a remix of “Affair Of The heart” the 12″ has the 4:32 version which I think is the album version.
