Notes

Daniel Miller said in the May 1982 issue of magazine Electronics & Music Maker:

"There's a new song called 'The Meaning of Love' which, when Martin presented it, was very basic so we worked out a bass line on the [Roland] MC4 but while they were playing along with it Martin did this little riff, so we just edited a space in the MC4's memory and inserted it. This means that you can work out the structure of a song and get it exactly right without having to put it down on to tape and then you don't have to mess around with tape editing at a later date."

An excerpt in the November 1982 issue of One Two Testing magazine:

One of the challenges they recently faced was making a 12" version of 'Meaning Of Love' - a trickier business than it sounds. Some tracks are easy to extend - riffs and runs can be lifted, echoed, patched together into middle sections while the rhythm track keeps going. Straight songs are harder to work with. You can extend the end or the beginning, Dave reckons, but after that you're on your own. They decided to augment 'Meaning Of Love' with a 'Stars On 45' chord change that spins out of nowhere, and plenty of weird percussive noises. "It was a good laugh, but some of our fans wrote in saying what was wrong with our new records. They were going a bit strange."
