BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
Side one label
“Turn Your Back On Me” was the third single released by Kajagoogoo (Known as Kaja in the US) from the album “Islands” also known as “Extra Play” in the United States. The song was recorded without Limahl, who had been fired by the band in mid-1983 and went on to pursue a solo career. Bass player Nick Beggs, already the group’s main backing singer, took over lead vocal duties, and also wrote the lyrics. The song was produced by the band themselves, now a four-piece group, along with Colin Thurston, who had also produced their debut, “White Feathers”.
“Turn Your Back On Me” did well on the US Dance Charts peaking at #2 for two weeks. The single failed to chart as well in th UK only reaching #47.
