House of Salome

Song written by Ricky and Marty Wilde. First track of the album Catch as Catch Can. It was released as the third single off the album in 1983 by RAK Records, but did not succeed in achieving chart success anywhere.


For a long time it was, together with Water on Glass, the only single to not have been released on 12" single anywhere. The 7" single was released in Europe only.
See this page in the discography for more information.


There are three versions of 'House of Salome': the album version, the instrumental version and the rough mix.
