Whilst I loved the first clutch of singles that the pair released, it wasn’t until this was hit the charts in conjunction with the film 1984, in November 1984, that I was in a position to buy one for myself.
24 November 1984 was a fine day for me all told. I bought this single and had attended the game at Gay Meadow between Shrewsbury Town and Sheffield United which finished 3-3.
Getting back to the record, Sexcrime (nineteen eighty-four) was the ‘Rythmics eighth UK single release. It had been let go into the wild in early November, and by the time I bought it, it had already made it to number 7 in the UK singles chart on its way to number 4.
