I was trying to think of an entry for today's 80s Music Friday, and then I realized that no matter what, Ray's will win for today, so I'm stealing his.
I've always loved this song. A little known fact about me is that I like to learn songs I like on the bass guitar and then play along with them. Often I'll build a little playlist of like 10 songs and play a little concert for the dog. Further, I like to pick ones with bass lines interesting enough, but simple enough that I can sing while playing. This was one of the first songs I learned (because it's easy) and I took on the role of the "...and then the conversation turned..." guy in the band. Now I see that he wears a different shade of lipstick than me, so that whole fantasy is shattered, but I still love the song.
