    In this case, the live-version is the greater one... the intro is awesome^^

    excellent song. Recently fell in love with the Live version. I really enjoy both the studio version and the live as they both posses qualities of their own - equally as awesome. I love the intro and energy of the live version. Oh how I wish I was alive in 1983!! =(

    it's true that intro sounds like let's dance, but both songs are from 1983! who inspired who? :) (1983, same year of Blue Monday vs The Walk!)

    this record was still great (not greater as New Gold Dream or Sisters Feeling Call) but it's when they became a sort of "poor U2 bros", and also when Jim's voice turned too close to Bono's one...

    I don't like the live version. Prefer the studio always!

    Super Song! Eben eines der Lieder, die aus früheren Zeiten stammen. Leider hat die Band nach diesem Album stark abgebaut.

    under rated. while Don't you is over-rated! I even like the studio version. Compared to the ring tunes and 128 kbit quality that kidfs seem to like these days, this is just brilliant. Really!!
