These Japanese singles were released on the WEA label in Japan except 'Shooting Star' which was released on Arista records and 'O L'Amour' released on London records, 'O L'Amour' was also released as a 12" single. 'Two Hearts' was entered in the 13th edition of the Yamaha World Popular Song Festival in Japan on 29th October 1982 (the year after Bucks Fizz entered with 'Another Night'). Originally they wanted to use 'Give Me Some Kinda Magic' but the rules state that the song must be unreleased prior to the festival. 'Two Hearts' was written recorded and mixed over a weekend especially for the festival, and was 1 of 23 entries picked from over 1900 songs. It's a shame it was never released outside of Japan.
