A remake of the old Elvis Presley #1 from 1961- the second #1 from UB40- their other was ‘Red Red Wine’ from 1988.
I actually quite like this one… especially in context of the loser songs that mostly topped the charts that year.
I liked this and their rendition of “Red Red Wine.”
I didn’t care for this version at all when I first heard it, but one day I suddenly fell in love with it. Guess the song title rang true for me!
