CLASSIC! It is one of my faves from the 80's. I only wish I was alive when it was blowing up.

Great song! I think this is just as good as much of their earlier stuff and was as worthy of being a hit.

Compared to the stuff on Dare and Hysteria - not to mention Travelogue and Reproduction - this is simply horrible.

I agree with you re the hits on earlier albums being better, but I reckon you are a tiny bit snobbish there. "Horrible" is a word i'd use to describe the stuff Bieber and 50 Cent "sing" not 80s classics like this.

I was going to mention that! The only other 80s pop group who were able to accomplish this (from the UK) was Wham! Every so often, my oldies R&B station spins this!

Great song but it feels quite out of place in their discography, especially against their very early stuff!

I discovered this through Craig David's cover back in the day (IIRC it was one of the b-sides to the 'Walking Away' Single):
