Don’t Leave Me This Way is a slow ballad and was first released from Malandra Burrows in 1998 under the slightly different title „Don’t Leave Me“. Tina recorded the song for her album Twenty Four Seven and released it as a single only in Germany. She promoted it at the German SKL-Show and performed it live at her birthday special Celebrate! The live version is available on the Twenty Four Seven (Tour Edition) from 2000. All other live songs from the single were also taken from the Celebrate! home video, recorded in London.
