Katrina & The Waves – Walking On Sunshine

Hmm. This was one of those singles that looking back now, I’d say was a good idea at the time.

That’s not to say that it is in anyway shape or form a poor or embarrassing choice, it’s just, well a little bit cheesy.  I mean look at the jumpers that they’re wearing on the record sleeve.  John Craven would have though twice about wearing those!

As for the song, well it’s just so healthy and uplifting, what’s not to like?  Well, truth be told, unless you’re an old curmudgeon – something which despite myself I’m not, actually – there’s not an awful lot!

Released in May 1985, it eventually made it to the heady heights of number 8 in June.  I was remiss in not writing my name and when I bought it on this occasion so I can’t tell you when I parted with my hard earned.
