upbeat tune is just the ticket to cheer you up on a dull day, and we
get plenty of them here in the UK!
The catchy tune made #8 in May 1985 (UK)
and #9 in the U.S. It was originally released only in Canada in 1983 and
featured on the band's debut album which was also entitled Walking On Sunshine. However, the song was re-recorded for the album Katrina & The Waves which reached #28 in the UK album charts and was the band's only Top 40 album.
The follow-up single Do You Want Crying only managed a dismal #96 in the UK, but reached #29 in Canada and #37 in the U.S. The band did have two more hit singles in Britain, though, and these were Sun Street (#22 in 1986) and Love Shine a Light (#3 in 1997 and also won the Eurovision Song Contest).
This upbeat tune was the band's only other hit of the 80s in the UK, reaching #22. The song was lifted from the album Waves, which was not highly successful, peaking at #70, although in the U.S. faired better by reaching #49.
