Another lame #1 hit- not awful mind you like “We Built This City’ -but boring. Looking back it is incredible to see that Mr. Mister- what a terrible name for a band- would end up with two #1 hits in a four month period- “Kyrie” would hit #1 in March 1986. They would have four Top 40 hits total- and Mr.Mistermania would come to an end. I didn’t realize their album also went to #1. At the time I wasn’t following the charts- of course I heard the hits but wasn’t all that impressed.
