During 80's and 90's, remixes and 12 inches were also the hype, that which you hardly find these days with music. I considered remixes as masterpieces, defining the artistic skills of music engineering. During long drives which I was still single, I had always with me CD-R with remixes.
One of the band's that I love during these decades was ABC. I am sure for those who grew in those years, they are familiar with this band. I particular like the following 12 inch remix songs:
1. The Night You Murdered Love
2. When Smokey Sings
3. Be Near Me
And there other great bands and groups such as OMD and AHA.
