By 1984, the 12″ single was a necessity for just about any artist releasing a new single and subsequently a number of artists who would never have been thought of as dancefloor friendly were releasing dance mixes.
Lou Reed released his “New Sensations” album in 1984 and scored an unexpected critical success, the new upbeat and fun Lou would release the singles “I Love You, Suzanne” and “My Red Joystick” from the album, with “My Red Joystick” being remixed by Francois Kevorkian for release in Europe and in the US on a promotional 12″ only.
