Recordings

  1. Album version, 3'06.
    Released on Black Sea.

  2. Single edit (sped up).
    Released on 23 January 1981 as a single in the U.S.A.

    Colin: “This was only released in North America, and they thought it was a bit sluggish.” Dave: “So rather than do a proper edit, they simply cranked up the speed.” Andy: “Ludicrous. Real Mickey Mouse territory, like it was done on helium.”
  3. Live version, 3'10.
    Released on BBC Radio 1 Live in Concert.
    Also available on Transistor Blast.

    Andy: “It's a very relaxed sounding Colin who ambles through ‘Love At First Sight’ kicked forward by Terry's electronic gulping snare. It was worth playing my shunting solo in this just to gaze over at ‘Gregsy’ grinning at the possibility of my tripping myself up with own guitar lead during dervish dance.”

Lyrics

See the lovers all gone crazy
looking for romance it seems
many sleepless nights will follow
some may lose but some succeed

Love at first sight
what they want is...
love at first sight

Make a play of lust intention
only just one thing in mind
make a slip could be forever
wedding bells, the shotgun kind

Love at first sight
what they want is...
love at first sight

Mouse takes the bait
so soon as he leaves his seat
there's no escape, very soon their eyes will meet

Love at first sight etc.

Take your partner to surrender
then your misdemeanour's done
sacrifice of maidenhood
but little boys must have their fun

Love at first sight.
