Posted by DjPaulT on 21st July 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Front

“The Politics of Dancing” is a hit song by the British band Re-Flex, released in 1983. It is the title track of their only released album in the 1980s. There were 12″ extended versions of the song released, as well as the 7″ single and the album version. The Capitol Records (U.S.) 12″ extended version notably became the first such instance of a UK band to top the American dance charts.

It became the biggest hit of their career, peaking at number 28 in the United Kingdom and number 24 in the United States. It also peaked at number eight on the U.S. dance chart. The band managed to chart two more singles in the UK, but only managed to get one more single in the US. This song remains their signature song.

This is an alternate mix than what appears on the UK 12″.
