So got this from Mike and not had a clue about who it was, research uncovered it was actually half of Tears For Fears!!! Roland Orzabel and Ian Stanley were probably commissioned to do this track as it appeared in Karate Kid 2. It was written in the long period between Songs From The Big Chair (1985) and Sowing The Seeds of Love (1988) Funky and dabbling in the latest technology for 1986, it is unmistakably Tears For Fears when you hear the vocals and arrangement. It features vocals by Eddie Thomas Jnr. (Thomas was one of the dancers in the Everybody Wants To Rule the World video) A great 12″ mix by the way!
The video was directed by Nigel Dick, who also directed Tears for Fears videos as Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule the World and Head over Heels.
