This was their first big US hit, but their second in the UK.
It was first released a year earlier, when it reached US#7 and UK#67, but it was back to a peak of UK#24 in November as a double ‘A’ side with “Nighttrain”. It re-rentered the chart at #96 on this day in the 80s, with one week on chart remaining.
It was their 2nd of 17 top 30 hits since ’87, and their 1st of 6 top 10 hits in the US from ’87-’91.
It gets worse here every day
