I've been trying to find the title of this song for ages. It was British Electrobeat (a la Peter Schilling, Robert Hazard or Modern English) circa 1982, and played fairly regularly on CFNY for a while. The lyrics went:

"There was disorder across the border ... just wasn't party line. ...
(Chorus:) When it came to lovin' how'd you do it? When it came to lovin', how'd you do it?
They practiced long embraces
in such familiar places,
but no one ever closed their eyes."

Probably about love in the Soviet Union. Any ideas?

Artist - The Puppets

Title - The Way of Life

Found on the Hardest Hits Volume 1 CD.

Thanks, Dave. That's great. Next I have to figure out where to get it. Apparently Hardest Hits 1 has already been deleted, but at least now I've got the title. Thanks.

Hi Glenn!

I saw HH Vol.1 on Ebay a while back and it reached over $100 for the disc...it's extremely rare. www.GEMM.com is probably your best bet to try and find the disc.

Check with Sunrise or HMV, see if they have a copy in a store that is not in Toronto. I know that in Kingston there are copies of the other volumes (Sorry not Vol 1) in their clearance sections for less than $10 Cad.
Good Luck

I know, I've seen Volumes' 2-5 for as low as $1 in deleted bins...but, never volume 1. The little embossed text on the front even says, "Limited Edition", and it seems like they weren't kidding! :)

Thanks Cory and Dave.
I saw a copy on Ebay too, but someone snapped it up for $27 before I could get a bid in. The owner of the Kool Kat used CD shop in Toronto has a copy, but isn't about to part with it. One of the shops at GEMM claims they can special order it. How do you special order a delete? Anyway, thanks guys. I'm hot on the trail. Anyone with other leads, feel free to email me at g_giffen@hotmail.com .
