    I’m so interested in hearing this single Paul. I remember seeing it in the shops when it came out, but I admit that I’m not at all familiar with the song. Looking forward to hearing it though. I was a fan of his two biggest hits and now, because of you, I get to go a little further into his discography. That’s the beauty of you Paul and BTG, I’m always introduced to things that might have fallen through the cracks in my own musical upbringing. You’re amazing DjPaulT!!

    Thank you for posting! I love this song, and hadn’t heard these mixes of it before. Robbie Nevil was one of my favorite artists in the late 80s. Back in the day, had bought all of his albums.

    Robbie is an awesome singer and writes catchy pop songs.
    Such a shame things went downhill after Çest La Vie.
    This is a groovy single with great Jellybean & C+C remixes, and even Somebody Like You is excellent.
    Third album Day 1 is also an enjoyable album but again met with little success.
    Paul, thanks for your rip, and more importantly for introducing this underrated single to more BTGers!
