    Thanks Paul again for the excellent DOA singles. Do u have That’s The Way (I Like It) and Hooked On Love (7″ Remix) as well ?

    You’re welcome Omar 🙂


  2. Jeff Says:

    What a thrill this 12-inch is!! At the time of its release in the US, the New York City area was all about Latin Hip Hop/Freestyle. This track was such an excellent representation of this electro-hip hop sound in the realm of Shannon’s “Give Me Tonight” and other tracks such as this one. I loved this with a passion because of the great sound, the mix-tricks and those naughty lyrics. Pete could always turn a phrase and the lust came through. This is high quality stuff here. Thank you Paul for giving us this and with the remix on the back. I’m head-over-heels in love with your Dead Or Alive posts. I’d love for the band to make a resurgence and record new material . I so miss them and Pete’s wonderful charisma!!

    Deep bow of appreciation Paul!



    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Jeff I totally agree with you Pete new exactly what he was doing. A comeback for them would be so wonderful I miss them recording as they are one of my ultimate favorite bands. Thank you for always having such kind words to say I appreciate it 🙂


  3. Kyle Says:

    Thanks for the DOA ! I loved their music ! I think someone should do a Cole Porter/Art Deco/ Buzby Berkely style musical with their songs. I loved the Dead House ‘Dub’ version of this song !


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Interesting idea Kyle. The “Deadhouse Dub” is coming tomorrow 🙂


  4. Christian Says:

    Hot diggity dog! You’ve surprised me with a DOA / SAW remix that I never knew existed. Even if I’ve seen this UK 12″ in the bins, I probably passed it up because nothing on the sleeve implies I Want You is a remix. Thanks, Paul!


    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Christian. They might have sold a few more copies had the sleeve been listed correctly 🙂


  5. Gilbert Gonzales Says:

    Thanks Paul for yet again another great post! DOA was and is still my fave group. I still play every album they released and of course your posts as well. You really have helped me with vinyls since my turntable gave up on me years ago. Thanks and looking forward to more Dead Or Alive posts!


    DjPaulT Reply:

    You are very welcome Gilbert. Enjoy!


  6. Jonathan Says:

    I seem to remember that the title meant the radio ignored this tune as it was released at the height of the AIDS scare, and it was thought the track promoted promiscuity. There are lots of stupid people out there! Didn’t stop me buying the various mixes 🙂


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Yes Jonathan people are stupid but it didn’t stop it from hitting #1 on the US dance chart 🙂


  7. Mark Z Says:

    Such a deliciously sleazy dance track! Thanks Paul, your good taste is unimpeachable!


  8. Venus De Milo Says:

    Thank you so much… even if I have all DOA records, you are helping me to have their vinyls to my computer, since my turntable is more dead than alive! Not all their mixes and remixes and dubs and whatever were burnt onto CD. Your work is so GREAT and PRECIOUS!


  9. Andrew Says:

    Some folk can’t do right for doing wrong !
    Loved all the Singles and the Nude LP as well.
    The only thing I’d of changed about this album was the title.
    PWL were suddenly SO HIP it seemed as so many reviewers floundered for a reason to slag this off.
    Though if your on any of the Facebook pages you will have seen the Single Reviews from The Pop Press of old.
    They always seem to have reviewed what they ‘thought’ they heard rather than what the Record actually sounded like.
    As Pete Burns pointed out DOA were responsible for the PWL sound as much as any one else.
    [Like New Order LOL !]
    They were on a BBC TV show and the Original Demo of You Spin Me Round was played – it sounded pretty much the same as the released Version !


  10. davdi Says:

    I agree, with Venus, preserving the rare mixes, dubs and edits you do laboriously and unselfishly is inspirational !


  11. Jason Says:

    Thanks Paul. One of my favourite DOA songs.


  12. opoder Says:

    A versão 12″ é um remix muito bem feito. Desde a primeira vez que a escutei (anos 90, em uma pista de patinação no gelo), fiquei doido por ela xD



  13. Chris Says:

    Thank you so much, Paul, for this amazing resource of yours that I have just discovered 🙂
    This is not a complaint, but the four bar timpani/orchestral intro for I Want You is very muffled and crackly – is it meant to be that way?
