BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982
“The Look of Love” is a song recorded by ABC in 1981, included on their debut album, The Lexicon of Love.
Released as a single and as a 12″ remix, it went to number one on the Billboard Dance/Disco chart as well as the Canadian pop singles chart. It was their biggest hit in the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 4, and was a Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S., peaking at number 18.
The single consists of four parts, referred to as “Parts One, Two, Three and Four”. A different remix version by producer Trevor Horn appeared on the 1982 U.S. 12″.
The ’82 U.S. Extended Remix was not widely available after its initial release, but the track remained much in demand by club DJs and fans alike, and copies of the original 12″ version fetched high prices. When Neutron (the band’s UK label) discovered this, they issued a limited edition re-pressing of the Horn remix in 1985 (though they did not officially re-release the song).
