Some fantastic plastic from 1985.
A superb single, backed with two memorable b-sides. Including a cover. And a brilliant sleeve as well. What more could you ask for on a Monday?

It reached the giddy heights of #77. I'm still amazed that all The Smiths fans out there never rushed out and bought this single as it wasn't a million miles removed from the sort of tunes Johnny Marr was writing and recording at the time.
It would be another three years before Everything But The Girl ever cracked the pop charts. And it would take until 1994 and a change of direction before they really became famous. But that's two other stories for two other times...
