Ok but nothing special.

Peaked at #8 in Australia, 1988 (AMR).

An odd sort of song...more drums (and lots of them - they had 4 drummers!!!) and NO guitars!!! Still creates a brilliant song that sounds awesome in the nightclub. Inaya Day covered it for that market, but this version would've held up nicely in its place.

don't like this at all. can't believe it reached #1 in new zealand :!:
***
Average.

I still love this song. It's a fanny hair away from being 6 stars. It made the charts in America and featured on the soundtrack of a big Hollywood movie back then so take that haters! ;)

"Well momma told me when I was young. Stand tall girl, you're number one. She said, 'you can't be what you wanna be, but you can shake the course of your destiny'."
****
There's something rather addictive about this song that hooks me in, I like it.
****
Cool Aussie rock track.
