Bros were at the peak of their heart-throb pop star success with this, their only #1.
It had been their first hit the year before, when it crawled to #80, but it was re-released after they had started having big hits, and hit the top for 2 weeks in June. It was finally at #88 for its last week on chart, on this day in the 80s, 23rd September 1988.
It was their 3rd top 3 hit, like all of their first 6 singles were.
I’ll watch you crumble like a very old wall
