I've Seen That Face Before

I watched Roman Polanski's Frantic last night, and I had totally forgotten about this song being in it. Not a perfect film, but the club scene where Harrison Ford and Emmanuelle Seigner dance to this is exquisite. You can see it written all over his face, how he's torn between his desire for this exotic, sensual creature and the desperation to find his kidnapped wife, and this conflict results in some seriously awkward dancing, which doesn't at all come off as merely slapstick physical comedy but real, authentic bewilderment.

Also, this is the LP version; the single version is about a minute longer. Anyone have that?
