"Love For Sale" was released as a single in its “special new version” (which isn’t all that special as it hardly differs from the original) and paired with the movie version of “Hey Now” as performed by the St. Thomas Aquinas School Choir. If you bought the 7-inch, you got robbed. The 12-inch, however, is a different story. On the “love dub” and especially the “extended version,” the Heads’ rhythm section of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth (along with Glenn Rosenstein) serve up playful remixes of the original (Frantz also seems to have embellished his rhythm with a couple of extra kicks). On these takes, “Love For Sale” never sounded so good. The 12-inch is worth a flyer for the curious, although be forewarned that the movie version of “Hey Now” is pretty annoying. Note that the US promotional 12-inch (PRO-A-2638) actually features the album version of "Love For Sale."
