BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

R E Q U E S T

“Nobody’s Perfect” was the first single from Mike + The Mechanics sophmore album “Living Years”. The single failed to make much impact on the charts only peaking at #63 on the US Hot 100 and #80 UK. Thankfully it served a far better purpose as the albums opening track giving it an instant distinction with it’s industrial chimes and up front lyrics. The song also appeared in the Miami Vice episode “Hard Knocks”.

    A chart misfire that was later rectified by The Living Years.
    Even though Mike & The Mechanics aren’t as big as Genesis, I love their pop singles, espeically their melancholic element ones. Plus, a super group with two excellent vocalists like Paul Young and Paul Carrack can’t hurt!
    btw Paul, this rip sounds so good!
