David A. Stewart introducing Candy Dulfer - Lily Was Here

The database mentions a DNA urban remix radio edit, yet I don't see a version listed on CD that matches the length (4:09).

Anybody know if that version is available in a commercial digital format? Does anybody know how it varies from the LP version?

It looks like the LP version was the original release in 1989, while the DNA Mixes / DNA Urban Remixes (one and the same, likely) came out in 1991... and it appears it was the remix that made it a hit in the United States as it peaked at #11 in July 1991.

I have The DNA Urban Remixes on a promo CD single (Arista ASCD-2253) from 1991.

They are not the hit version. I was disappointed; $1, poorly spent.

I have another promo CD (ASCD-2188), and it has only one
nondescribed track. I'm away from home at the moment, but I will
provide some additional details on it when I return. Discogs shows a
run time of 4:19 and lists a remix credit for this version, but it's not the
DNA remix from '91.

WOW, I had completely forgotten about this song. I
listened to the DNA remix on YouTube and to the album
version and the album version is what I remember.

I don't think the song got much radio airplay back then
and certainly not now, at least locally, despite peaking
at #11 on the Hot 100 in 1991.

We played it where I worked in 1991. We were an AC at the
time, don't remember whether I heard it on any CHR or not.
I don't think it ever made it to recurrent or gold rotation
though.
I'll still hear it used occasionally to backtime to network
news, but that's about it.

I pulled my promo CD single. The printed time is 4:19, and actual time is 4:20. The credits say "Remixed by Gary Bradshaw."

Also, the song peaked at #12 on R&R's CHR chart, so it must've been played on some pop stations. I wasn't heavily listening to top 40 radio at the time, so I don't have much recollection of it.

I really liked "Lily Was Here" when it was out. It was played in heavy rotation on G105 in Raleigh-Durham at the time, IIRC. I remember hearing it quite regularly, and I listened to that station non-stop in those days. It was a very cool and different record from the other top 40 hits. Clive could always get those oddity records into the top 40.

I can confirm that Candy Dulfer's CD "Saxuality" also says "remixed by Gary Bradshaw."

"Lily Was Here" got plenty of CHR play back in the summer
of 1991. The #12 R&R peak seems spot-on to me.

I NEVER noticed this before: at 3:56 in the track on my CD copy of "Saxuality" there is a "click," not only very audible as a pop but also very visible if you open it up in a waveform editor!

It really doesn't look like an intentional audio element picked up by a microphone; it looks like a digital glitch (and sounds like a record scratch).

I can't find a single copy of the original record on YouTube that doesn't have this audible "pop" at that moment in the music, either.

I'm wondering a couple of things: does the "Lily Was Here: OST" have the click as well? Does anybody have the cassette of "Saxuality" who can check and see if it's there, too? (There was a vinyl release, but not in the United States, so I won't ask about that.)

I found "official" YouTube videos with audio provided by the record labels containing "Lily Was Here" from both "Saxuality" and "Best Of Candy Dulfer" and both containing the click, so I'm not holding my breath that a version without the click actually exists.

I don't know how I never noticed this before; now, the quest is on...

I have the German CD single, which also states "Remixed by Gary Bradshaw". I also hear a bit of a 'pop' at 3:56.
