SPANDAU BALLET-Gold (Dodi's crossover mix) (1983)

Duran Duran or Spandau Ballet ? That was the question back on the beginning of 80's. Who has better songs ? Who has better styling ? Better videos ? ...
I couldn't decide it back then and later I didn't even try. So let's leave it as dead race.
Just as title says ''Gold'' became real gold over the years. Highest Billboard hot 100 position was only 27 while LP reached 19 on top 200.
I made this crossover by request from Ivana, a friend of mine who didn't have a chance to listen and enjoy in the 80's (she was too young) but still she recognize it as real new wave anthology classic.
12'' offers 7:12 version which I stretched to 10:05. Have fun.
