REQ: Men Without Hats "I Got The Message" 7" Edit

Postby Fred Taghon » Thu Jul 04, 2019 2:12 pm

Curious if anyone out there has the 7" single of "I Got The Message" by Men Without Hats they can share here? I'd like to re-create the 7" edit using the album version from the "Rhythm Of Youth" CD.

According to Discogs, the UK 7" is 3:20 and the USA 7" is 3:30. Chances are good these are the same versions, though. The only thing I can find on YouTube is the official video which is definitely an edit, but it ends at 3:08 and it seems like the music was faded way too early?

I have the 7" - but nothing to digitize it on :cry: So second that request, please.

Here is a fresh rip from the UK 7" single to WAV.
The track time on the label is 3:34, which is pretty much spot on. It doesn't appear to be an early fade of the album version.

Men Without Hats - I Got The Message (Special Edit)(TAK 14a)(1983)

Enjoy!

EDIT: Looking on Discogs, the original UK release from 1982 (STAT 20), as seen here:
https://www.discogs.com/Men-Without-Hats-I-Got-The-Message/release/727164

has a running time of 3:20 and gives a remix credit to Tony Cousins. No mention of him on the 1983 UK release (TAK 14), so potentially we have another version to track down.

Thanks for that! It's interesting that your 7" is a different edit than the official video I found on youtube. But I assume the USA 7" is very likely the same as yours.

I hadn't noticed that 1982 7" with a remix credit before!

Is your 7" the UK or USA release? If its USA can you at least verify that it's the same edit as the one retromusic uploaded?

Fred, my 7" is this:

Men Without Hats I Got the Message / Utter Space Statik STAT 20

Presumably the UK one. But I'm not sure it was released in the US - the follow-up to "Safety dance" there was "I like", while overseas got "Message".

Yes "I Like" followed "The Safety Dance" in the USA, but apparently "I Got The Message" followed "I Like":

https://www.discogs.com/Men-Without-Hat ... se/3208477

https://www.discogs.com/Men-Without-Hat ... e/11244492

So it appears the 7" YOU have is the 1982 UK release:
https://www.discogs.com/Men-Without-Hat ... ase/727164
Which, according to the label is a shorter length (3:20 instead of 3:34) and is "remixed" by Tony Cousins. Curious how that one compares to the one retromusic shared (which is the 1983 or possibly ly 1984 UK 7") https://www.discogs.com/Men-Without-Hat ... se/5839555
