      1. To be frank, I just remember the feeling of awe and owerwhelming screaming from girls😜saw them again in 2016 at Le Zenith in Paris, still brings the house down with that synth riff🤘👏

  1. One of my all-time fave 80s songs, Hugh! I like trying to sing along but he has got a killer vocal range! This song is on my faves list on Spotify! Yay! Stuck in the house while Spokane swelters in 3-dig heat, so getting work done inside and enjoying the cool comfort of online with great wifi! Have a great weekend!

    1. I don’t envy that heatwave you’re experiencing, Terri. The air-con will no doubt help if you’re dancing along to this tune. I love the video too. It has a dark, edgy feel to it. Right up my street.

  2. I love this – the song always has me dancing around! Super creative video that tells a story! Have you seen the ad with the older guy riding a lawnmower and singing this? Funny!

  3. This song takes me back to the summer/fall of 1985 instantly. What a great year of music, also with “We don’t need another hero”, “Love and Pride”, “Walking on Sunshine, or “Into the Groove”… and so many others. Wow, I have to go to Youtube now… lol

  4. Great song brilliant story video, the intro gets me up and then I dance as fast as my back will let great era, plus I love their accents!
    Here is another great dance tune same year!
