    • I really liked their album- I thought they would have a pretty good career- but it came down to a pretty good year 1989 for them.

  1. Distinctive voice. This song is one of those that instantly evokes a certain time and place- I think of painting the interior of a kindergarten wall on one of the times my wife ‘volunteered’ my ‘free hours’ on a precious Saturday. The things Dads get roped in to do… at least the music stuck.

  2. Great album, actually two great albums from them, then out. I haven’t seen ‘Highlander’ but I know the main reason they broke up was Roland wanted to go into acting full-time.

  3. This song was such a breath of fresh air compared to what else was on the charts at the time. And despite it hitting Number One, no one else tried to do a “sound-alike” so it really stands alone in music history.
