A great story song from here, which I still remember all the lyrics to. Stan had his only solo top 75 hit with this song that reached UK#4. It was in the chart for the last time on this day in the 80s, 14th September 1986, at #70.
He had 2 more chart entries, which both peaked at #91, in an ’84-’89 chart career. He has never managed a solo hit in his native US, although he did as part of Wall Of Voodoo.
Things are never quite the way they seem
