    Thanks for this! I’ve been searching for a good rip of this for years now.

    Just for the sake of clarity, the first track is the ‘Extended Version’, not your regular ‘album version’.

    You’re welcome John. The s-side is the extended version but not listed as such on the label.

    How you make the heart skip its beats dear Paul!! Well, first off, thanks again for your brilliant rips of David Bowie’s dance-ography over the past two weeks plus. I have been in a state of euphoria ever since. And now, you posted a 12-inch I thought no one knew about. I have it courtesy of my old college radio station. They didn’t play much dance music on their frequency, so I was able to obtain the promo 12-inch for myself. I never thought I would ever hear it again. Thanks Paul for coming to my ears’ rescue!! I can not wait to get home and hear this gem after so many years. I absolutely love it how you show tribute to our musicians we have lost over the weeks. You thrill me ever so much. I am jazzed beyond belief for this lost track. People who don’t know this are in for a treat. I love the dub version too. Great transition track for a DJ set. You are marvelous and miraculous once again DjPaulT.

    HUGE THANKS!!!

    Jeff

    I was sad to hear of Glenn’s untimely death recently. This is a great reminder of his solo work, which was one of my favourite singles in 1985.

    Thanks Paul 🙂

    Thank you very much Paul!!!

    Just a question:

    Is there any “extended version” more than 5:51 of “You Belong To The City”?
    I know these two versions:

    A You Belong To The City (Long Version) [5:51]
    B1 You Belong To The City (Short Version) [4:22]

    Thank you!

    [Reply]

    gonzalo76 Reply:

    I’m asking this because there a 8:07 version in Youtube, which I think it’s not official…

    It’s not official. It’s fan made. The only official extended version is 5:51 and can be found on all 12″ versions of the single.

    This was a monster hit. These are some good mixes, but the single version has such a recognisable fade in intro to it, that all this mixes sound wrong to me! LOL Where’s the intro????? LOL. Well, just cutting of the beginning of this mixes makes them sound more logical, at least the dance mix has a nice cold ending (single version fades out).
    The movie was extremely popular, as was this song and the video for it, that whole year long! Anyway nice hearing this mixes albeit such a sad occasion.

    I’ve been waiting long for you to rip this one! A sad occasion of course, but nevertheless I am very happy you took this one from your vast collection to give it a Paulity treatment. Thank you very much. I think it’s the only single from Glenn Frey that got a remix.
