Katrina And The Waves – Plastic Man (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th June 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

“Plastic Man” is an early single by Katrina and the Waves released in 1984 in the UK. The single was issued before the band had international sucess with their hit “Walking on Sunshine”. “Plastic Man” failed to have any chart.

The b-side “Going Down To Liverpool” was written by Katrina And The Waves guitarist Kimberley Rew. The song was first released on the band’s 1982 EP titled Shock Horror! (with the band then simply named The Waves) and also included on their 1983 debut album Walking on Sunshine, which was only released in Canada. The version included on both releases featured Rew on lead vocals.

When the band signed with major label Capitol Records, the song was re-recorded with Katrina Leskanich on lead vocals and included on their 1985 self-titled album . Although never released as a single, it was featured as the b-side of two of the bands’ singles, Plastic Man and their breakthrough hit Walking on Sunshine.

The song was also covered by girl group The Bangles in 1985.

Katrina And The Waves – Do You Want Crying (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th October 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Written by keyboardist Vince de la Cruz “Do You Want Crying” was the foolow-up single to “Walking On Sunshine” and became a top 40 US hit reaching No. 37 in the late summer of 1985. The single also charted in the UK at No.96 and Canada at No.29.

This song has pretty much been over shadowed by “Walking On Sunshine” but in my opinion it is a great 80’s pop song that deserves to be revisited again.

Katrina And The Waves – Walking On Sunshine (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 10th October 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

REQUEST

“Walking on Sunshine” is a song written by Kimberley Rew for Katrina and the Waves’ 1983 eponymous debut full-length album. A rerecorded version was released on the band’s 1985 self-titled album as the album’s second single and reached No. 4 in Australia, No. 9 in the United States, and No. 8 in the United Kingdom. It is the Waves’ first U.S. top 40 hit, and their biggest success in the UK until “Love Shine a Light” (1997). Conceived of as a ballad, Katrina decided the better part of valor was to belt the song out.

Royalties from airplay and advertisements of “Walking on Sunshine” has been extremely high. Katrina and the Waves kept the publishing rights and the royalties that typically go to the songwriter have been divided among the band members, though Katrina Leskanich was fired from the band in 1998. Estimates are that the song has earned $1 million per year for the ten years ending in 2010. According to a former employee of EMI, “Walking on Sunshine was the crown jewel in EMI’s catalog,” and that it was one of EMI’s biggest earners from advertisers.
