The video of course is amazing and the song and flute are great in this track. Best British video at The Brits 1987. UK#4 and Ireland#3. US#1.

i used to hate this but it's alright, i've heard it a lot on mtv classic recently so i've come to enjoy it.
*****
Peaked at #3 in Australia, 1986.

Has a very iconic film clip,
*****
It's very cool even though I almost never pay attention to the song itself.
***
Just okay, considering how annoying it can be.
*****
Good

"Open up your fruitcage" uhh.. you'll have to buy me dinner first! lol. Such a dirty song full of euphemistic goodness.
*****
Great track; amazing video!
******
6 stars
*****
Memorable and clever track and more mainstream compared to some of his earlier work. Probably his best known solo song. My second favourite after 'Steam'.
*****
Classic... incredible filmclip!
