I’ve always been a big fan of Paul Young – so much so, I actually “bought” his first two vinyl albums. To be fair, I was probably given the money, for I was only eight when “No Parlez” was released (1983), and nine when “The Secret Of Association” was released (1985).

Today’s featured track is from later in Paul’s career – 1993 – and was his last top twenty hit. He turned 60 in January of this year.

Here below is the music video, followed by a Top of the Pops performance in which Paul definitely doesn’t sound his best. Given TOTP’s insistence for all acts to sing live on the show at the time, one can only assume he might have been under the weather, as he does sound somewhat croaky. Still a great performance though.
