If you grew up in the Eighties, this probably got played at the end of your school disco forming the soundtrack to the ritual of The Slow Dance. A ceremonial teenage rite, the scourge of the socially inept and those lacking in enough confidence to approach members of the opposite sex. Apart from that, it’s a fine example of the polished production talents of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who were the duo behind some of their biggest hits. Call me an old romantic, but hey, I think going to the cinema on a first date like the guy on this track suggests, is a little lame unless purely to cop a feel in the back row. In that case this single would probably be called something quite different.

Consecutive days of sunny weather make one susceptible to the care-free tunes both in the present and from the past. This comment on discogs by the-jaguar gauges the vibe:

A gem that symbolises the time very well. The cyclical groove works brilliantly, and can dig deep if you’re in the right mood. Evokes images of sun-soaked global scenes from 1985, enhanced by the entertaining voice-over. Would also be a good track to go swimming training to, on a sunny morning on the outskirts of LA. The pool would be of Olympic standard, with only a few people in it. The motion of the track bodes well with that of front-crawl stamina training.

So was a huge album in the eighties that spawned singles like Sledgehammer and Don’t Give Up but this mournful song has always resonated the most from the album and is all the more poignant after finding out a little more behind the inspiration to write the tune.

A brief track from the Scottish songsmiths which has been ably employed in ambient mixes by those in the know, including Jon Marsh (of Beloved fame) on his simply sublime Travelogue mix. Perhaps this was the beginning of the habit amongst eighties ‘rock’ artists of including a leftfield slab of ambience tucked away on an album? Always exciting to discover an album that you’ve previously only recognise from the artist or the songs that were released as singles, has something completely different in pace and vibe tucked away unobstrusively in the middle of the B-side. Long may I continue to discover them.
