I dont like Take a Bow very much at all and never did. It is one of her most well known ballads and is mediocre when compared with tracks like Secret. It has too much of that bland and perfectly produced R&B sound of the 90's that kills all rawness or energy from the track

The fact it took you decades to love it, basically proves my point. But hey, I guess in a few centuries I might learn to appreciate Jimmy Jimmy as a masterpiece as well??

Hey!!!! Jimmy, Jimmy is 100000000000000 times better than "Take a bow".... :P

OK, I admit, I'm some kind of freak... I love "I know it", "Shoo-bee-doo" and "Jimmy Jimmy" and I hate "Take a bow" and think "Live to tell" is a good song but boring, I only listen to the edit...

Ah 8 tracks...wonder what they could be? Maybe the two remixes two edits of them then their instrumental then the album edit and album instrumental? Hope there's a surprise though 

There’s only 2 mixes, 2 instrumentals of the mixes and 1 edit of InDaSoul Mix. Also the radio edit of the album version.

That’s 6 songs. I wonder what the other 2 are

Hmm what if its a new edit? Didnt they do that with Beautiful Stranger? Or was there always an edit of his club mix? The plot thickens...imagine they add Let Down Your Guard lol

If we get anything other than this, it'll genuinely be a surprise. I'd love it if we also got the blue version of the artwork, the gray one is just so dull... Coming in an hour!

I was checking again the original physical formats and now wonder it flopped in the UK... I mean this tracklist for both CD singles:

Regular UK CD Single:

R-7182501-1437134852-3631.gif.jpg

01. Take A Bow (Edit)

02. Take A Bow (Album Version)

03. Take A Bow (Instrumental)

Limited UK CD Single with 3 prints:

R-260874-1617537726-7662.jpeg.jpg

01. Take A Bow (Edit)

02. Take A Bow (Album Version)

03. Take A Bow (Instrumental)

Really uninspired. I guess the remixes were not ready yet or Warner UK simply didn't care.

Warner in the UK were great in the 80’s then I think they cottoned on that UK fans were hungry for variants around Like A Prayer and banked on additional fan sales from imported maxis which were huge business here in the 90’s. 
 

I remember there being an IMPORTS section in HMV or labelled as IMPORTS.
