BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
“Gold” is a 1983 single by the British New Wave band Spandau Ballet from their flagship third album True.
The song is Spandau Ballet’s 2nd best-charting single behind their previous release “True”, reaching #2 on the UK Singles Chart (being held off the top by KC and the Sunshine Band’s “Give It Up”), and #29 on the U.S Billboard Hot 100 chart. A music video was created for the single, which contains the longest-held note by any male artist in any song released during the 1980s.
The music video was directed by Brian Duffy and filmed on location in Carmona, Spain. The video featured Sadie Frost as a gold-painted nymph in one of her earlier roles.
