Paired with "True Faith"? It's the beginning and end of a relationship in seven minutes!

"Silent Morning" enjoyed a Warholian fifteen minutes of fame at some point in the late 80s. For a breif season there it was THE SONG you heard on every dancefloor in NY. I vaguely remember witnessing a "track date" performance by Noel in some godforsaken nightclub. It's kind of a cover version/appropriation of "The Mexican," no?

I always thought it was unbearably sad.

A rarely acknowledged fact about most freestyle lyrics.

oh hell yeah, they're all dripping with heartache.

Just heard this the other day, it's the female answer track to "Silent Morning." Not as good as the answer track to "I Wonder If I Take You Home."

Occurs to me this thread actually needs "Silent Morning" itself:

Did anyone tape Maura's freestyle presentation from EMP two years back? Still one of my favorite things from all the Pop Conferences I've attended.

Whoa, THERE'S some trivia -- the guy who directed that, Mark Pellington, ended up directing the videos for "Jeremy," "One" and a slew of other videos up to the present day:

All praise to Dave Marsh for including this single in his book!

Up there with "One Way Love" as my favourite male-lead freestyle single; glad to hear it on a bunch of mixes lately (Eclair Fifi using the acapella on her FACT mix, and Speculator from our parish).

This is one of my favorited freestyle tracks (although "Diamond Girl" is slightly better at something similar).
