WTLX Mix Tapes: Side 4, Song 10

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

Yes, there’s the memorable, sample-able bass line, but what is it that makes this song so great? On one hand it has the combination of two amazing and iconic voices, but on the other there’s nothing much in the way of melody. For me, its greatness lies in the passionate deliveries of the climax, starting with Freddie’s “Can’t we give ourselves one more chance?” and running through David’s “This is ourselves…” Made #29 in early 82.
