    Funny how we were talking about this song on the “I Get Weak” thread and now a day later, here it is!! Although I like Belinda’s version of this song, I wasn’t too surprised it didn’t chart higher – it was pretty different from her three previous singles which were all radio friendly, whereas this one sounded kind of dark. I know I never heard it on the radio and the fact that it wasn’t released as a cassette single (which were starting to really take off at the time) like her past three singles probably didn’t help this song’s chances on the charts. Either way, it’s great to remember it and give it some well deserved recognition, especially the extended version. Excellent job, Paul!
