Single Notes By dltourhistory

The fourth single from 'Adrenalize' was released in November 1992 and early 1993. 'Stand Up (Kick Love Into Motion)' was only released in the US and certain European countries such as France. It was later released in Australia and New Zealand in 1993 as the alternative to UK single 'Heaven Is'. The song was a hit in the US and reached number 34 on the Billboard charts.

The B-Sides for the single were the same as the UK 'Heaven Is' CD (see that page for details). The Australian CD came in a Limited Edition fold out digipak sleeve. A French promo single was also released in a digipak sleeve to promote the 1993 French tour dates.

Australian CD Single Band Message

"Our fourth single, Stand Up cleverly combines motorcycle speak with your typical Def Lepp love tune. Check out our two managers acting in the vid. You figure out which characters they're playing. Additional tracks for the single include an old Elliott tune "She's Too Tough" as well as a version of "Elected" with Steve Clark on it from Tilburg, Holland (vintage mid '87). "Let's Get Rocked" comes from a club date we played in Bonn, Germany in May of '92."
