WTLX Mix Tapes: Side 4, Song 4

Note: This series originally appeared on Facebook in a slightly different form, Aug-Sept 16.

One of EC’s two US top 40 hits (this got to #36 in Fall 83; “Veronica” reached #19 in 89). The extended metaphor of love-as-a-literary-work completely rocks the house.  I don’t recall seeing this video on MTV during my heavy-watching period; I think I would have remembered the Chuck-and-Di doppelgängers.
