    i like this version. My copy is a 3:38 version that sounds like the 12” on Atlantic Recs. and the B side is “Make Your Mind Up” (Atlantic ‎– 7 89446-7)

    this single version is much better. thanks

    Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve heard “I Can’t Wait”! I love the vocals on this song, just something about Valerie Day’s voice that brings back the 80s feel for me. There are days when I wish I could travel back in time and relive that decade. But I guess this is the next best thing. It’s such a trip being on this website, thanks so much for everything Paul!

    Thank you! I actually like this version better! The synths in the beginning are awesome.

  13. Wim Says:

    I like this one very much Paul. Thank you.

    I have a different question though:

    I’m in the process of converting all my music to lossless now and therefore wanted to reload AC/DC. The FLAC link however sends me to a website that asks me to install iLivid download manager? After searching internet that appears to be malware. Next to this I noticed this happening at many more old links. Can you please advise? The current links all work great.

    Thanks,

    Wim

    Ah, this seems to be an edit of the Vocal/American Mix from the 12″, which is my favorite version. The “Dutch Mix” or what I think everyone knows as the more popular version seems a little over-produced to me. I prefer the more laid back tempo and groove of this earlier version. Thanks again Paul!!

    The classic single from 1986! And it’s all thanks to a Dutch remix that brought it the belated success in the USA! Love the Madonna and Nuance samples in the remixed version. Keen to hear the original before the Slaghuis touch. Thanks for another rare share, Paul!
