Bangles "Walk Like An Egyptian" 12" Single (1986)
Details: The Bangles three-track remix single for "Walk Like An Egyptian" released as the third single for their album, Different Light on Columbia Records, in 1986. Lovely condition.
Description: "Walk Like An Egyptian’ was a huge hit for the Bangles, but it all started with a demo mix‑up and some very unusual percussion.
One of the biggest hits of the ’80s (and a staple of rock radio ever since), the Bangles’ ‘Walk Like An Egyptian’ was instantly everywhere upon its initial release in 1986, topping the US singles charts and reaching number three in the UK. But behind its driving beat, quirky hooks, and sunshiny indie-pop vibe lay the difficult and fractious story of its creation. At the time, it may have been the commercial high watermark for the Bangles — Susanna Hoffs (vocals/rhythm guitar), Vicki Peterson (vocals/lead guitar), Debbi Peterson (drums/vocals), and Michael Steele (bass/vocals) — but in truth, some members of the band hated the track."--Sound On Sound, Tom Doyle
