  • This is the first single from Alphaville (barring re-releases) that did not include an original B-side track
  • The "7 Inch" mix is the same as the album version
  • The CD Single Promo has a black colour cover with red fangs, and not a red colour cover with white fangs as the official CD Maxi Single and the CD Single Promo Digipack has.

Other releases[edit]

The "Faithful & True" and "12 Inch Berlin" remixes appeared again later on the Dreamscapes release, where the Berlin remix was re-labeled as the "Speed" remix.

Charts[edit]

Fools hit #10 in Finland and #70 in their native Germany.[citation needed]
