G ee, I must have slept right through this on Three, since I didn’t recall it from the album when I heard it again. It’s actually a terrific song, sorta King Crimson meets Siouxsie and The Banshees. (Don’t know how it missed the charts unless we were all sleeping.) The single edit flips the second verse and the chorus and seems to run a little quicker, although I haven’t held the 3:35 track time to a stop watch. The instrumental “Nuages (That Which Passes, Passes Like Clouds)” doesn’t vary enough in run time from the elpee version to warrant a closer inspection. Apparently, an instrumental version and dance version of “Sleepless” were slipped onto a 12-inch release.
