***
One of the biggest hits of the 80's in Australia, has become a bit of a standard these days. No doubt, we were in an age where the video clip was more important than the song, the clip is instantly recognizable. So much, that Shania Twain reversed the genders for her "Man! I Feel Like A Woman" video. Robert's early 80's stuff is what should have sold, but at least he had one mega-hit.
******
My favourite Robert Palmer track. This one holds up even without the video, which is probably what made it so popular. Just a great rock/pop song. In my Top 50 of the 80's.
****
Annoying but I can't help not liking it.
**
why is this robert palmer';s biggest hit in australia. nowhere near as good as addicted to love

Good but is borderline 3 stars and I'm unsure as to whether it deserved to be a mega hit or not.
