The blood that moves the body (The Gun mix) - A-ha

After 'Move to Memphis', one more single was released to promote A-ha's 1992 compilation album 'Headlines and deadlines'. It was a remix of the 1988 single 'The blood that moves the body'. Since that single was the first A-ha single to land outside the UK top 20 in 1988, the record company probably thought it had some room for improvement.

So this remix was made, adding, well, not very much to the original version. The release went by largely unnoticed, and it did not chart. I only found out about the single a year after its release, and had to search for a few more years to finally find this 7" single.

My collection: 7" single no. 2741
Found: Record fair, Amsterdam, September 21, 1996
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'The blood that moves the body (The gun mix)' / 'The blood that moves the body (Two-time gun mix)'
