Modern English - I Melt With You

Modern English - I Melt With You

Does anyone know which Modern English cd contains this version "I Melt With You"? It's different than the version that usually gets airplay.

Thanks Schwenko but I have this cd and the neither versions on the cd is this version. In fact, I really can't tell the 2 versions on the cd apart except on is about 20 seconds shorter. :D

Anyone else?

Hey Sean!!

This version is from the 1990 Pillow Lips release! Oddly enough the video on YouTube says 1982, but that version just sounds too clean and modern for 1982. The 1982 version on "After the Snow" was more raw with more guitars.

Awhile back, I stumbled on this homemade video (with Modern English's 1990 audio), which is actually pretty entertaining.

Correct, this version is from Pillow Lips. It's a completely new recording (not a remix of the original). When the band signed to TVT Records, they obviously wanted to kick off with their biggest hit but as Sire Records had the rights to the original recording, the band re-recorded the song. They also released a 12" of this version with several different remixes.

Interesting that the vinyl release has a couple extra tracks, one of them is I Melt With You (Stop The Radio Mix) ... I'd like to hear that mix, but I can't seem to find it anywhere online...not Amazon, not iTunes, and no blogs. Anybody happen to have that track to share here?? :P

What's odd is that 5 of the 6 tracks from this 12" are on Spotify and the missing track is the Stop The Radio mix.

I own the 12", but when I went to pull it out I found that I have mis-placed it! Hopefully I will find it soon.

I've got another question on the same song, actually. SPG's Classic Alternatives 4 and the six-disc box that includes it both have a 5:30 mix that's definitely based on the 1990 re-record for Pillow Lips, but which doesn't seem to match any of the 1990 releases on discogs in length, and which doesn't seem to be an edit of any of the longer ones as it opens in a way that none of the 1990 remixes I've found on YouTube do:

  • Toke's Rock the World Mix (5:45 - John Potoker) starts with handclaps and acapella vox (some with "reverse" effects), then dumps into the jangly guitar.
  • Carl's Stop the World Mix (7:27 - Carl Segal) starts with four lines acapella, then a drum breakdown and starts into the jangly guitar.
  • Bass Meltdown Mix (6:02 - Carl Segal) starts with two bars of snare/kick drum, then the drum breakdown and into the jangly guitar.
The Classic Alternatives version starts with FOUR bars of the snare/kick drum, the last of which has the drum breakdown, then three bars of the snare/kick drum with synth bass, then one bar of just synth bass, then into the jangly guitar. I'm assuming from its resemblance to the Bass Meltdown mix that it's another Carl Segal mix.

TVT issued three other 1990 mixes -- Stop the Radio Mix (3:58), Rock the Radio Mix (4:15) and the promo-only Carl's Clubs the World Mix (4:46) -- but they're all obviously way shorter than the CA version and the first two seem from the names to just be edits of the Potoker/Segal remixes.

There's also a comp called Can't Get This No More! with a 5:21 mix labeled "Toke's Rock the World Mix" but with the remix credited to Carl Segal instead of John Potoker (?). No idea if this is the one on CA or an edit of the actual Potoker mix or something else entirely.

Was the Classic Alternatives version actually released commercially at the time, or is it something that just slipped out later on?
