Cliff Richard – We Don’t Talk Anymore (German 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th January 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979

A. Front

DISCO FRIDAY!

Re-Rip Remaster

Originally I posted this one back in April of 2010. But for those who may have missed it, or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a fresh new rip with my newer Ortofon 30 stylus. This rip sounds way better than the first one. The 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“We Don’t Talk Anymore” was a UK number one single for four weeks in August 1979 for Cliff Richard. Produced by The Shadows’ rhythm guitarist Bruce Welch and written by guitarist Alan Tarney it was Cliff Richard’s tenth UK number one and his first since “Congratulations” in 1968.

Coming just before his 40th birthday and just when it was announced that he was to receive the OBE for services to music it cemented his comeback which continued well into the eighties and nineties. The single was his biggest worldwide seller, reaching number one in Germany for five weeks (his only English-language German chart-topper, though he had two German-language number ones there in the 1960s) and reaching number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the United States.

The single sold 5,000,000 worldwide topping the charts in the UK, Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Malta and Switzerland.

The song was the sixth video aired on MTV on its launch date, August 1, 1981.
