Limahl – Only For Love (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 20th March 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

“Only For Love” is the debut single by former Kajagoogoo singer Limahl, following being fired from the group by his bandmates in 1983. The song was featured in the first UK version of Now That’s What I Call Music, and later included on Limahl’s 1984 debut solo album, Don’t Suppose. The song became his first UK Top 20 hit, peaking at No. 16 on the UK Singles Chart. It remains his second most popular single in the UK as a solo act (the first being “The Neverending Story”). The song also reached No. 5 in Switzerland, No. 9 in Austria and No. 51 in the U.S..

Limahl performed the song with Beth Anderson on the TV show American Bandstand on March 9, 1985.

The song also played a part in the singer meeting producer Giorgio Moroder, while he was performing the song at a rock festival in Tokyo the following year. Moroder would help Limahl reach greater international success later in his career.

Limahl – The NeverEnding Story (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 20th August 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on December 22, 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 Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit  flac for the very first time!

“The NeverEnding Story” (titled “The Never Ending Story (L’histoire sans fin)” in the French version) is the title song from the English version of the 1984 film The NeverEnding Story. The English version was performed by Limahl and Beth Anderson; the French version was performed by Limahl and Ann Calvert. It was a success in many countries, reaching No. 1 in Norway and Sweden, No. 2 in Austria, Germany and Italy, No. 4 in the UK and No. 6 in the US Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

The song was composed by Giorgio Moroder with lyrics by Keith Forsey, although it (and other electronic pop elements of the soundtrack) is not present in the German version of the film, which features Klaus Doldinger’s score exclusively.

Beth Anderson recorded her lyrics in America separately from Limahl’s. Anderson does not appear in the music video; frequent Limahl backup singer Mandy Newton lip syncs Anderson’s lyrics.

As a reference to the film and its title, the song has no distinctive beginning, nor an end. While many songs fade out, NeverEnding Story not only fades out, but also fades in, thus making it “never ending”.
