    Thanks Paul!
    Great 80s euro classic, but I was surprised it crossed over and cracked the Hot 100. Was it due to MTV play?

    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Ric. Yeah I imagine MTV played a pretty big role in this songs popularity. I do remember seeing the videon being played and heard the song on the radio a few times.
