This is a good song. I still enjoy listening to it. It's indeed a classic for sure.

Terrible he has a very bad voice.
*****
Great song.
*****
His first major charting and best song for me. Good tempo and synth arrangements and I love the suspenseful bridge.
Actually fits well in several categories: pop/rock, synthpop and new wave.
#4 peak UK, 1984.
