BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
“Like to Get to Know You Well” is a single by musician Howard Jones released in the second half of 1984, which was subsequently included on his twelve inch remix album The 12″ Album. The single climbed to number four on the UK Singles Chart. The sleeve carried the motto “Dedicated to the original spirit of the Olympic Games”. The extended version, subtitled “International Remix”, featured Jones singing in English, German and French.
The song was included as a bonus track on the singer’s second studio album, Dream Into Action.
“Like to Get to Know You Well” was featured in the 1985 movie Better Off Dead starring John Cusack.
Two different videos were made. The first featured Jones walking around the streets of London greeting members of the public, accompanied by his bandmates of the time. When the single was released in the US, a new animated video was produced for that market.
This is the second pressing with the slightly different sleeve.
The line of incorrectly translated Japanese text is taken out and the mix title appears at the bottom instead.
