Day 8 - White Lion Radio's Favourite Vinyl 12 Inch Singles From The 80s

Day 8.....

Seona Dancing - More To Lose (Extended Mix)

Today we have a hidden gem of a 12 inch single in the shape of “More To Lose” by Seona Dancing, a band that only ever released 2 singles (I have both of them on 12 inch vinyl in my collection). What many people won't realize, is this was a band that featured a certain gentlemen by the name of Ricky Gervais!! Ricky was the singer in the band.

“More To Lose” was released in 1983 and only reached number 117 on the UK Singles chart, surprisingly the much weaker single “Bitter Heart” reached Number 79 in the UK Singles Chart!

The Extended Mix takes full advantage of its infectious bass-line and melodic piano riff, how this song wasn’t a massive hit I will never know! It has one track on the B Side, “You’re On My Side”, which is the same version as the 7 Inch B Side, however, it is definitely worth having for the A side alone!

I only bought the record because they were playing it in Virgin records in Manchester, and thought it was awesome and so I asked a member of staff who it was and bought it, might prove to be a worthwhile purchase because surely the original 12 Inch vinyl must be collectable.


A1 More To Lose (Extended Version) 6:03
B1 You’re On My Side 3:06

It must be collectable because on Amazon you can get the 12 inch for a mere £170!!!!
