1. I remember when this came out that some radio stations wouldn't play it because

it was too suggestive.

Pretty tame by today's standards.

2. It hit our East European country years later.

 

I remember dancing on this song in the disco, to the dismay of my metalhead bf at the time!

I miss the past... So full of memories x

3. My "go-to" FGTH song was always...

...Welcome To The Pleasuredome. Gotta be the 14 minute album version, NOT the single.

When I lived in Santa Clara, I attended a weekly meeting in San Jose, and got there by taking San Tomas Expressway. I would start the song when I crossed El Camino, and that would be the music for most of the remaining ride.

My favorite part of the song comes around 10:30. "Shooting stars never stop, even when they reach the top...there goes a super nova, what a pushover..."

It really is a brilliantly arranged piece of music, thanks to Trevor Horn. I put it on a mix CD, and if I remember correctly, I followed it with Tears For Fears' "Everybody Wants To Rule The World."
