Another great score from the ‘$3 bins.’
Groove writing- Side A: “Nutty” Side B: “Can you feel the heat?”
Wiki sez: ‘According to Alan Winstanley, one of the producers, the released Madness version was a rough mix, created by taking the original 1 minute 10 second instrumental and repeating it, with the second half treated with an Eventide harmonizer to make it sound slightly different. Langer and Winstanley intended to do a full remix but found that the double-length rough mix had already been sent for mastering before they got the opportunity.’
This single reached #7 on the UK charts, a much poorer #76 in the US.
