OTHER NOTES
Released as the only single to promote the Best of 1980 - 1990 & B Sides, The Sweetest Thing also had several promotional singles released in advance of the album. The tracks found on the promos mirrored what was available on the commercial singles. The cover artwork for the promo singles was also similar to the commercial artwork, with the placement of the title text being slightly different on the US version.
