Our house.
Jingles can ruin songs. Look what happened to Like A Rock.
Until it got overplay on commercial radio & heavy rotation in a Maxwell House coffee commercial, I used to like the song.

Love the cars
How can you play up downstairs?
Early 80's 1982 to be exact. Another childhood song that brings back memories 31 years later! Where does the time go.
Tear jerker great memories school daze!!!!!!!

I had this life with my family and grew up being a Good mommie to my son in a house in the middle of the street! Enchanted forest it was really
Sounds better EVERY time!
Listening to these 80'as hits is like listening to AT40 ( Casey Kasem ) non stop! (Age 28)
Oh yes, this takes me back to the day of childhood bliss.
FUN Song
LOVED this song, but just learned I had some of the lyrics wrong-LOL

"I loved this house when I was younger. These days I don't want anyone to know where I live. Still hittin' the dance floor in the club for this jam."
Remember seeing them do this on the Young Ones....
From the moment I first heard it at 12 I knew it was full of greatness, listened to the radio just to hear this song ever after! Thanks Madness!!
schillerjen
how great was this video, looked like they were having so much fun
This is Madness!
Oh no, I just spilled a wine cooler on my best acid washed jeans.

Michelle Bassett, no, this song does not "suck". Like someone else said, go ahead and listen to your Celine Dion and the Jonas Brothers. Our House is one of the best songs to come out of the 80's, hands down. A terrific song.
It had a moment in time...
since the first time I heard this song at 11yo I knew it was something amazingly special we would listen to the radio all day long every weekend just to hear this song, I cant help but want to dance to this song every time I hear it.

How can anyone say this song sucks??? they obviously were not teenagers in the early 80's//
Great one!!!!!!!!! !

No bassett, this doesn't suck. So stick listenin' to your favs... Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Jonas Bros., Sade & Carrie Underwood. They all suck the big one.

Our house is in the middle of the street-- there are seven houses to the left and seven houses to the right! And we are a huge family. I live this song as much as I love it!
Might want to put that house on the left side or the right side of the street but I don't advise putting it "in the middle of the street".
mrsbassett
this sucks
Check out the video for this song; it's awesome!! Thanks Pandora!!
