The second single from their hugely successful, “Sparkle In The Rain” album and sounding more like U2 than U2. Produced by Steve Lillywhite (probably a main reason for the similarities) this track didn’t really do it for me back then, it just seemed like a battering ram of noise, a continual chorus. The Extended mix does improve the song, adding some extra parts and even having a Coda at the end. Backed by “Bass Line,” an instrumental version of the “Sparkle In The Rain” album track “White Hot Day,” I had to check it wasn’t Genesis!
