Notes

  • On the Japanese release the "Version Discotheque" of The Only Flame In Town is simply called Long Version. The "Special Mix" is the same mix.
  • The remix of Pump It Up has an accentuated beat and is slightly faster than normal. The "Dance Mix," "1984 Monster Mix," and "1984 Dance Mix" are all the same mix.
