Well, this song is making the rounds again, thanks to a Progressive Insurance commercial I’ve been seeing a lot of.
Every time I hear this song (and I’ve been hearing it since the fall of 1987), I tend to think it’s a cover of a song from the 1960’s or thereabouts. But nope, this hit by the former member of the Go-Go’s is indeed an original. It was Carlisle’s only solo Billboard chart-topper, reaching number one in early December of ’87, also going to the top on the UK charts for a two-week stay. Also on the same album is “Circle In The Sand” which was spotlighted on here last September.
