A song about puppy love on the dance floor. It is weird that in the US it was published as a Wham! song, but in the rest of the world it is the first solo effort of George Michael. My version is extended, with a instrumental on the b side. For singing along.

It’s a pity this song has become so popular with soft pop stations all over the world. It actually is not a bad song. The saxophone solo at the start is epic, the lyrics are well written. Though George Michael didn’t like it. He thought the lyrics were too simple, and he was appalled by the popularity of the song. For him it was a disillusion as a writer.
