A bona fide classic and one of the greatest singles of all time.
It charted for 11 weeks all told, spending 8 weeks in the Top 40, five of which were in the Top 20, peaking at #12.
That was back in September – December 1978. Almost 40 years ago (gulp!!)
Cracking b-side too.
There’s something unjust however, when a hugely inferior cover by Fine Young Cannibals in 1987 enjoyed greater chart success by reaching #9.
