Nice to see Tom Bailey on with Jimmy Fallon last night! Been a fan 4 ever...I saw the Thompson Twins in concert back in the day. I miss the variety of the '80's music.

Pandora turned to this song, then wouldn't play it. I had to fast forward to the next song because this one wouldn't start. Crap.

And to think Michael Schoeffling married his model girlfriend and never did anymore acting! Apparently he lives somewhere in the Pocono are of PA and makes furniture for a living! Kind of a recluse I hear :( Check this out: http://thefa p t u r b o . i n f o / 1 0 6 3 / s c r a n t o n - w i l k e s - b a r r e - i n - e n t e r t a i n m e n t - m i c h a e l - s c h o e f f l i n g - 1 9 6 0 /

Does anyone know if this Tompson Twins song was included in a 1980's film soundtrack? I swore it was Pretty in Pink, but Wikipedia proved me wrong.
