    This is the best version of this song I know of. I never thought I could actually like this song. I dearly wish Strawberry Switchblade had made more albums...

    If you could somehow make an entire chalk board out of nails and then take some more nails and scratch those nails against your new nail chalkboard, it still would not irritate me as much as this woman's voice in this song. The music itself is totally groovy though. Bah C+ man... Can't hang sorry.

    the 'long' version is great though, the extended outro is awesome, pure 80's synth-bliss!

    This version is different to the one I have on CD. I prefer this one though because the other is sooooooooooo long.

    A lost work of genius. Trashy in places but so groovey, loved the Donna Summer-like opening, right from the start. Please note, Steve Wright, there's more to New romantic than the Spandoos and the duran sisters! I really hope they're still working!
