Sharpe & Numan – “Change Your Mind”

It’s no secret that I’m a huge Gary Numan fan.  He had a huge influence on the birth of my “band” Restiform Bodies, and I still get chills listening to some of his early songs.  This track was recorded at the end of the 80s (not known to be some of Numan’s best years), but it still stands up as a decent pop song.  In 1988, this single reached #17 on Britain’s pop charts, and the following year, the full-length collaboration (with Shakatak‘s Bill Sharpe) Automatic came out.  Honestly, I like Gary’s solo stuff so much more, but I really do love this song.  This one clocks in at a little over 8 minutes, being the 12″ club mix and all, but I couldn’t track down a shorter version.  Enjoy.
