Note: This series originally appeared on Facebook in a slightly different form, Aug-Sept 16.
This was released as a single twice, in 82 and 85, getting to #54 the second time; I assume one reason for the re-release was the success of “Missing You” the year before (additionally, it was on the Vision Quest soundtrack). It’s another one of those songs I think should have been a much, much bigger hit. I’ve long been fond of the video, as well. The visuals dovetail nicely with the lyrics, and I like how that, by the end, you can see they’re not taking themselves too seriously.
