"Come Back And Stay (Extended Club Mix Version) - Paul Young
I've already gone on record and said this was my favorite Paul Young track so you knew this was coming. Young started his career in Kool Kat And The Kool Kats, moved on to Streetband ("Toast") and then formed the Q-Tips in '79. He went solo in 1982. Got his big break in '83 with the LP this track is from, "No Parlez". He turned 52 this past January but he's still "Young". Ugh. These are the jokes. At least I didn't have a band named Kool Kat and The Kool Kats. This song was a top-5 smash in the UK in 1983 but it didn't chart in the USA until '84, reaching #22. Our German friends really got it though. It was #1 there for 7 consecutive weeks. This remix is pretty darn cool if I do say so myself. TT: 7:33.

Thank you for this mix. This is my favorite Paul Young song as well.

Uncle Mike - Thanks for this 12" version. I wonder if it is the same as the version that is on the No Parlez CD album (which features many songs in more than 5 mins length). I will listen to find out. I like Paul Young, esp the 12" singles (like many that were released in the 80s). Come Back And Stay, Love Of The Common People, Wherever I Lay My Hat (That's My Home), Everything Must Change, Every Time You Go Away. In case you have TOMB OF MEMORIES, one of his minor hits, which I love dearly from THE SECRET OF ASSOCIATION album.

School starts tomorrow, in a few hours' time. I just wish I could say to the 1 week of break COME BACK AND STAY! Argh!

Thanks very much.

Chwee: It's not the same version that was featured on any release of "No Parlez" that I've ever seen in the US. There was a deluxe 2 CD edition of his next LP,"The Secret of Association" released last year that featured remixes of some of those songs. School won't be that bad, promise, hang it tough.

Hello Uncle Mike - I didn't know that there is a 2-CD album set for THE SECRET OF ASSOCIATION being released. Wow! That would be awesome in my collection and I got to check it out. Thanks for the information!

Greetings Uncle Mike - I did a check with the CD copy of No Parlez and I am pleased to share that the version of COME BACK AND STAY is the same as the 12" remixed version! Yeah! Still - thanks for uploading it. It is part of my Standard Operating Procedure to drop by everyday to take a look and... you know... be happy from the songs I download and play! THANKS!
