The 8:02 extended version of The Perfect Kiss is awesome - including the sound of backing vocals from frogs.....I suspect those frogs also appeared in Wham "Club Tropicana" roughly around the same era...
Here is another treasure with that classic early synth sound .... Saturdays in Silesia - Rational Youth an absolutely awesome extended mix (7:16). The sound of drum fills is just stunning. (This can be found on "Classic Alternative s Vol 4.".

yes this is the real original of what you heard in the clubs with the acoustic
guitar section towards the end. This version was immensely more popular
than the original original Falco version.
All of the above are excellent sounding.
For Bongo fans this Extended Mix starts like a Brazilian carnival and then drifts into a groove a la Bernie Edwards (Chic) style.
From the style I am pretty sure this is Jimmy Maelen playing percussion or it
might have been Bongo Bob. Jimmy played on Roxy Music Avalon as well as a
ton of other famous albums. The Funky drumming is Steve Ferrone (AWB). Sadly Jimmy died in 1988 from leukemia. Amazingly, in less than a decade,
Jimmy played on hundreds of albums, including Roxy Music, Peter Gabriel, James Taylor, Alice Cooper, John Lennon, The Jacksons and Talking Heads. If you follow music from that era perhaps you will recognize his magic touch.
