I just loved the easy vibe of this tune right from the very first time that I heard it. However, it was not the usual sort of tune that I would have gone for. At first glance, this may have been because I went off to university in October.
However, I note that this was a late summer tune, released in August 1988. If I bought it straight away then I was still a country lad with limited tastes. However, if I had bought it from the bargain bin after I had gone away then, well… do you need me to spell it out?
Anyway, the track charted soon after release and peaked at number three in September, spending two weeks in that position. Overall it spent eight weeks in the top ten, with a total of seventeen weeks in the UK singles chart.
