A 7" remix and two 12" extended remixes of the single were released. The song was then remixed a third time for Dead or Alive's compilation album, Rip It Up, released in the fall of 1987.

"My Heart Goes Bang" was again remixed and re-recorded for Fragile and Unbreakable which were only available on Avex Label in Japan.
