1979 German front Cover
Probably one of my all-time favorite pop songs. I have always had a connection with this song, since I first heard it on the radio when I was about 11 years old. I am so pleased to be able to share the rare long version with all of you all of these years later. I hope you like it as much as I do.
“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.
