This song was lifted from the forthcoming soundtrack to "Give My Regards To Broad Street". Released at the height of the 80's "marketing overkill" period, there are a plethora of versions of this release to look out for ! ... plus 1 version down to record company incompetence !! ... read on ...
1) The original 7" version - No More Lonely Nights (Ballad) b/w No More Lonely Nights (Playout Version).
... halfway thru the pressing run some labels on the 7" were pressed up with a spelling mistake ! ... hence ...
2) same 7" version, BUT spelt No More Lonley Nights on both sides (pictured below).
3) The first 12" - No More Lonely Nights (Extended version) 8:10 b/w Silly Love Songs AND N.M.L.N. (Ballad)
4) Same 12" recordings on a picture disc.
... then Paul heard and liked an Arthur Baker remix, at which point he had the original 7" and 12" deleted and replaced with new combinations including the Arthur Baker remixes ...
5) 7" - No More Lonely Nights (Ballad) b/w No More Lonely Nights (Arthur Baker's Dance mix).
6) 12" - No More Lonely Nights (Extended Dance Mix) b/w Silly Love Songs AND N.M.L.N. (Ballad)
... and finally,
7) 12" - No More Lonely Nights (Mole Mix).
... a single-sided 12" "Mole Mix" was pressed up for D.J.'s which was limited to 300 copies, individually numbered. Therefore this is quite collectable and can be on sale for up to 200 !

The original video was shot on April 10th in Bermondsey (South East London) at the Old Justice Pub. A second video was shot in October at the Hippodrome in London to promote the Dance Version, this clip features Jeffrey Daniels.

The single and 12" versions were released in picture sleeves with photographs by David Dagley. The original 7" can be seen at the top, with the only change for the 12", being the picture on the rear of Paul on a bench, replaced by a group picture performing live (also as above). The picture disc 12", had the same as the cover of the 7" as it's A-side picture, but the B-side picture was a different group picture, part of which can be seen above. This picture was taken by Terry O'Neil.
