This was the lead single from Spandau Ballet's fourth studio album Parade. Reaching #3 in the UK singles chart, the song became the band's eighth top ten single.
Between 1983 and 1986 Spandau Ballet were at the peak of their career. All three of their studio albums released during this period - True, Parade and Through The Barricades - reached Platinum sales in the UK.
There were just eight tracks on the Parade album, but what quality tracks they were. The band's music and fashion style of the time oozed sophistication, and we all love a bit of 80s sax don't we? Tony Hadley's voice only added to the sophistication, and to release three quality albums in three years was quite an achievement.
In terms of commercial success, the previous album, True, produced the highest-charting singles. But for me, this album had a more satisfying sound and demonstrated how the band was maturing musically.
Three more songs were released as singles from the Parade album which all reached the Top 20. These were; I'll Fly For You, Highly Strung and Round And Round.
