One of my favorite songs from Go West. I first lheard this while watching Pretty Woman. I got to understand the song better years late. Even though it has an upbeat tune, it is actually a sad song. Listen to the words carefully. Besides this song, there is another Go West song Faithful is also an example of a sad song with upbeat tune. Singer Jason Donovan also has a similar song, Too Many Broken Hearts. Right now, King Of Wishful Thinking is the song that revived my interest because it reflects on me now. Go figure.
