Depeche Mode - Stripped b/w But Not Tonight (1986) - single

"Stripped" is Depeche Mode's fifteenth UK single, released on 10 February 1986. It was the first single from the album “Black Celebration”. "Stripped" is well known for its innovative use of sampling. The underlying beat is a distorted and slowed-down sound of a motorcycle engine running, while the main melody begins with a car's ignition starting, and the end uses sounds of fireworks.
The band's U.S. label Sire Records, however, decided to use the B-side "But Not Tonight" on the soundtrack to the movie Modern Girls and included the song on US editions of “Black Celebration”. As a result, the single was flipped, and released as "But Not Tonight" in the United States to help promote the movie. The band was not happy with this decision, seeing "But Not Tonight" as a useless pop track recorded in less than a day. The single did not chart.

Junior - Mama Used To Say (American Mix) b/w Mama Used To Say (American Mix Instrumental) (1981) - single

London-born Junior Giscombe started his musical career working with popular British black music band Linx between 1980-1982. A one-off 1980 single enjoyed some popularity in clubs in the UK and France, prompting then Phonogram A&R executive Roger Ames to track him down, resulting in a contract with the company in the UK and releases on Mercury Records.
Of the first two tracks he recorded for the label, Ames picked “Mama Used To Say” and within months, Junior had landed a Top 30 hit single in the U.S., becoming the first British black music artist to appear on the popular American TV show, Soul Train and essentially the first such artist to achieve a major chart breakthrough in the U.S. Now a classic anthem, “Mama Used To Say” was also a Top 10 UK hit and prompted Junior to complete his first album, “Ji” .

Donna Summer - Cold Love b/w Grand Illusion (1980) - single

"Cold Love" is a song by American singer Donna Summer, released as the second single from her album “The Wanderer”. It peaked at No. 33 in the Billboard Hot 100. Summer earned a Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
Vocally, this song contrasts with the just previous "The Wanderer" single release - it is very reminiscent of her 1979 disco hit "Hot Stuff" - power belt and hard rock approach. This style was currently in vogue in the early 1980s and used by female vocalists in groups such as Heart and in Pat Benatar's "Hit Me with Your Best Shot".
