I agree with that. The beat right at the intro is a bit SAW-like.

To me it seems like an attempt to ape the Italo big room style. ..A successful one.

This is the reference for my comment about "Being Boring" v. SAW: http://psb-atdeadofnight.net/mezi_radky ... aviour.php - I think it's a transcription of the reissued album booklet notes.

Don't forget Phil Harding and Ian Curnow produced Always On My Mind/In My House on Introspective.

By the way, I was listening to a remix from Phil Harding today, the song "Hot Girl" by Sabrina (listen to it, it's good and it reminds the remix from "It's a sin", because of the whippings):

Talking about Sabrina, it's funny because everybody remembers the song "Boys, boys, boys" (at least here in Spain) but the thing is she made a perfomance with the song "Hot Girl" in a popular Spanish TV show at the end of the year and the beginning of 1987/1988.

And well, E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y in Spain remembers that, in fact is one of the finnest moments of our Spanish TV history. Take a look at it:
I have never seen that before but really enjoyed it, thanks for sharing :clap: :shock: :D

Puts Olly's performance in the shade.
