No.2 in the UK
singles chart in September 1986, this 80s classic was the title-track
from the album and was one of the Quo's most successful singles. It was also a
welcome break from the usual three chord rock melodies.
The song was originally recorded by the Dutch artists Rob and Ferdi Bolland (who were born in Africa) in 1981.
A re-release of the song in 2010 peaked at #31 in the UK, with all profits going to the British Forces Foundation and Help For Heroes.
