"West" is the key to success

#1 Post by alig » Sat 28 Jul 2018, 12:11 pm

Their greatest hits both have the word "west" in common. West End girls and Go West. If they release another ditty with that word in the title, they're gonna enter another imperial phase. :dance: :drool:

A duet with Kanye West? It's a shame that Go West is considered one of their definitive hits, I skip that track every time.

If they never played it again, I wouldn’t be crying myself to sleep.

Back in the day, the theory was that they recorded “Somewhere” because the West Side Story connection would give them a surefire “West” hit. Not very plausible, I admit, but they did seem to be getting desperate.

Had they called it "Somewhere West" it would have been a sure-fire hit.
