@MartyvH. The big country being referred to is the United States.

This guitar was ahead of its time that's why this song was so good back then

Funny how people say 80's music was bad. Maybe since was teen during this time, you had new wave, hair band, etc... Thought was pretty good. Seems even better now hearing these songs

Another one of those "epitome of the 80s" tunes. I still tap my feet when i hear this. Brings back some good memories. (sigh)

I don't give a f-f-f-flip if they never had another hit. The open harmonies and the lyrics and the guitar riff ROCK. This song is MAGNIFIDENT. And if you don't think so...BITE ME.

This is one of my all-time favorites. The bagpipe effect blew me away the first time I heard it.

This group is great! lol They do not make 'em like this anymore- I love this group because I am probably the biggest all-time fan of Brit and European music!!
