a-front

“The Killing Moon” is a song by the band Echo & the Bunnymen. It was released on 20 January 1984 as the lead single from their 1984 album, Ocean Rain. It is one of the band’s highest-charting hits, reaching number nine in the UK Singles Chart, and often cited as the band’s greatest song. Ian McCulloch has said: “When I sing “The Killing Moon”, I know there isn’t a band in the world who’s got a song anywhere near that”. In a retrospective review of the song, Allmusic journalist Stewart Mason wrote: “The smart use of strings amplifies the elegance of the tune, bringing both a musical richness and a sense of quiet dignity to the tune”.

“Bring On the Dancing Horses” is a single by Echo & the Bunnymen which was released on 14 November 1985. It was the only new single to be included on their 1985 compilation album Songs to Learn & Sing. According to the liner notes that accompany the CD release of the album, the song was recorded specifically for the John Hughes film Pretty in Pink, the soundtrack of which also includes it. The song reached number 21 on the UK Singles Chart and number 15 on the Irish Singles Chart.

In a retrospective review of the single, Allmusic journalist Stewart Mason said that the layers of synths on the song and Ian McCulloch’s overdubbed vocals on the chorus add to the “psychedelic haze of the track”.
