I think most teenage lads really hated Marti Pellow, it was that self satisfied grin that you wanted to wipe off his face. Amazingly this track is not on here…..until now!
This was their debut hit and got a US release in 1988 with a couple of remixes by Eric Calvi. (Duran Duran, George Benson) Very different, a bit sparser with lots more dance beats overdubbed and the horns more synthy. I’m guessing the Dub and Mister E. are mislabeled (not Mike’s fault) as the Dub is hardly a dub. Anyway nice if you have not heard it for a while.
It doesn’t get more 80’s pop than this!
