Re-Rip Remaster

Originally I posted this one on August 10, 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 new rip with my newer Ortofon 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

This is the North American release of the single “The Second Time” re-titled “Go For It”. The single also contains different mixes than what appeared on the European release.

“The Second Time”/”Go for It” was also the first Wilde song of which there were several remixes released both commercially and promotionally on the 12″ format.

In the US the single reached #65 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was a top 40 dance track reaching #31. The song was also used on season 4 of the US television show “Knight Rider” on the episode titled “Knight Racer”. In addition “Go For It” was also used on the TV show “Misfits Of Science” bothe shows aired on NBC just weeks apart.

Kim Wilde – The Second Time (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 26th March 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

“The Second Time” is the first single from Kim Wilde’s 1984 album Teases & Dares. It was re-titled “Go for It” for the North American market. The song was written by Kim Wildes father (Marty Wilde) and brother (Ricky Wilde).

The track was also Wilde’s first release on the MCA record label. Her last few releases on her original label had failed to make an impact on the world’s charts, but this one finally put her back into the limelight in several European countries, and made #29 in the UK. It also marked her second chart entry in the US, where it peaked at #65.

The b-side “Lovers on a Beach” (an exclusive non-album track), was also extended for the 12″ single in some nations.
