The b-side in most territories was ‘Scream Like A Baby’, although in Japan it was issued with ‘It’s No Game (No. 1)’ on the flipside.
The single version was an edit which reduced the length from 4:47 to 3:27. This removed most of Robert Fripp’s squalling guitar solos.
‘Fashion’ was most successful in the United Kingdom, where it reached number five. It was also a top ten hit in Norway, South Africa, and Sweden. In the USA it peaked at number 70 on the Billboard Hot 100.
