Although not a top 40 hit, it's one of those classic '80s songs that has been getting airplay for many years. Back in the mid-'90s, a promo CD of "Bizarre Love Triangle" was put out to coincide with the Best Of compilation release. Our station started playing this song quite regularly at that point, using the "Single Remix" from that promo CD.

If my memory is correct, the promo CD "Single Remix" was the same version as the 1986 US 12" (side B, cut 2), running 3:45. But, there was also a 7" single released that has a printed time of 3:36. Does anyone know if that time is a misprint, or is it a different version on the 1986 7" single?

My copy from TM Century starts with the drums and runs 3:22. Though no indication is given, would this be a radio edit?

The 1986 45 runs 3:36 - the intro runs :17 and has a cold ending.

Hmm, well the promo CD has a :25 intro, so there's definitely a difference. Chuck, are you familiar with the version on that promo, and if so, is it even the same mix?

John, I have it on a TM disc, too, and I have no idea where that edit comes from. It's the same mix as what's on the promo CD, but they chopped several seconds off the intro and faded it. Definitely not the same as the 45 or the 12". The promo CD starts with just a synthesizer (no drums) and also ends cold. I'm pretty sure it was identical to the 12" I used to have, but I got rid of the vinyl quite a while ago.

Thanks to Chuck, I was able to hear the original 1986 7" version. It's the same mix as the 1995 promo CD, but it's an edited version---an out-of-sequence edit!

John, the TM edit is either a promo-only version or simply a butchered attempt at getting the correct single version. The first 2:35 is all correct, including a couple out-of-sequence edits. After that, the official 7" version has another out-of-sequence edit. On the TM version, it just follows the regular "Single Remix" from the promo CD, yet for some reason they faded it before the cold ending. Again, maybe it was like this on a promo 7" single. Anyone know?

Have seen a pictures of a U.S. promo cd single and U.S. promo 45. Listed time on the promo CD is 3:44, listed time on the promo 45 is 3:36.

Not sure which was issued first.

**EDITED TO ADD** - The promo CD is from 1995, the promo 45 is from 1986. As was mentioned above.

Well, it appears that the TM disc is some other edit of unknown origin. The soundtrack to "Threesome" has a 3:23 version on it, according to allmusic.com. Maybe that is where this edit comes from.

Does anybody have a CD source for the 1986 17-second intro, 3:36 length, cold ending 7" 45 RPM single version? I seem to have every OTHER possible edit / mix / remix / extended version, but I haven't located an original '86 mix yet.

I will shoot this out in a little bit to anyone who would like a copy. I
created the edit based on Chuck's 45 dub.
