Back in 2012 I posted the commercial version of this 12″ which had “Letters From The Road” as the b-side. This promo features a Dub mix instead so, I grabbed up a copy when I ran across it. “Strut” was the fifth top 10 single of Easton’s career and was co-written by Charlie Dore who had a #13 hit on the Hot 100 in 1979 with “Pilot Of The Airwaves”.
Prince’s third single from ‘Batman’ was “The Arms Of Orion”, a slow jam duet between Prince and Sheena Easton. The single peaked at #36.

A song written by Prince, under the pseudonym Alexander Nevermind, for Sheena Easton’s 1984 LP ‘A Private Heaven’. The song was banned from video play because of the lyrics, not the imagery in the video, and it made Tipper Gore’s Filthy Fifteen list during the whole “music is destroying the very fabric of our society” hysteria in the mid-80’s. The song still went Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B singles charts and notched a #1 on the Dance charts.
“Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair)” was the 1st of 3 singles from Sheena Easton’s ‘Best Kept Secret’. 12″ remixes by Rusty Garner & Greg Mathieson.
