    From the second invasion. In the United States the single was released in November 1982 and became a huge hit, reaching No. 2 for three weeks.

    It's amazing that I can't remember what day it is, but I an remember all the lyrics to almost every one of these songs.

    I can also imagine her doing a creditable cover of James Brown's: Get Up I Feel Like Being A Sex Machine.

    BTW I was born in the early 70s, and my parents were folkies so I only discovered 60s Brit pop (apart from the Beatles obviously) in my late 20s when a 60s dedicated radio station started up in my home town, in the 90s.



    And wow! He still does a cracker version!!
