Yet another #1 single from a movie in the late 80’s the movie here was called ‘Buster’- never saw it- don’t even remember it. Kind of a strange stretch here in 1989 the previous #1 hit- a song written in 1967 by Neil Diamond- covered by UB40- ‘A Groovy Kind Of Love’ was a #2 hit by The Mindbenders from 1966- and the next #1 will be another movie single -from The Beach Boys.
just my opinion but a big NO for this one.. the originl was dreadfully trite and boring and this one more so
