"Desire" is a single and the eleventh track from Karlophone's 2002 album, Press Any Key to Begin.



"Desire" was originally released in 2002 as the final track on Press Any Key to Begin, the debut album by Karl Koch under the Karlophone moniker. On July 1, 2004, the song was released as a 7" vinyl single on the website of Amorphous Records, Koch's label. It was later put up for sale on the Karlophone Bandcamp page.

The single features two b-sides: "If You Listen", a previously-unreleased track co-produced and featuring guitar work by Patrick Wilson; and a remix of "Desire" by Swiss DJ Kid Chocolat. The remix utilizes stereoscopic sound and features a more atmospheric tone than the original. Karlophone would simultaneously contribute a song titled "Dr. Strangelove Sings The Beatles (Num Num Mix)" to Kid Chocolat's compilation CD Hello Children, The Peter Sellers Rmx in 2004.

Kid Chocolat again remixed the song in 2007, releasing "Desire (Kid Chocolat Rmx Version 2)" on the album KCRMX.[2]
