Not any better or worse than original but doesn't really do anything and a lazy boyband no thinking cover version. 21 weeks in the UK top 100. 82,000 sold while #1. 5th UK top 10. Their first UK#1. UK#1 and Ireland#12. 225,000 copies sold in the UK.

Their biggest selling single in the UK.

Better than the original. Very cheesy but a guilty pleasure pop track.

an unnecessary cover

Average cover, the a-ha original is miles better.

Really added nothing to an already over rated track.
