    What a great surprise. I have never heard the extended (promo only?) version of this great track. I saw them on tour in Kansas City in 1983. Thanks! All the best.

    Not familiar with this song of BWW’s.

    Just had a blast and kinda liked it though, she’s singing a bit more properly/softly. 🙂

    Yo’ve got to check out the music video! And then for fun see a modern music video that is very much like it – Martina & the Diamonds’ “Hollywood”. 2 videos decades apart but very much of the same feather.

    …Amd Eurythmics’ The King & Queen of America, of course.
