When the legendary ska pop punk band The English Beat split up two other great bands were formed.
The singers went on to become the pop new wave wand General Public, while guitarist Andy Cox and bassist David Steele teamed up with vocalist Roland Gift to create soul inspired Fine Young Cannibals.
In early takes of this song, Gift sang the song is his normal full voice. The band was originally less than enthused about how the song was turning out and were about the shelve it. It wasn’t until Gift tried a take with his unique falsetto voice that things turnaround in the session.
This song went to #1 in April of 1989
