I got really sick of this song being everywhere when it was new. But there was so much about this song that I didn't understand back then. It was kind of a dirty song. At least, by 1984 standards.
Produced by the legendary Trevor Horn, the song slowly reached #10 on the US charts and topped the UK charts. This video is the 2nd version of the video - a cleaner version that was made especially for the BBC so they wouldn't ban them for indecency. It didn't work.
In 1984, this is what passed for indecent. Pretty tame stuff.
