The song that broke the Go-Go’s into the major leagues came about because Go-Go’s guitarist Jane Weiden was looking for love in all the wrong places. (hey, that might make a catchy song, too!)
While touring the UK, Weiden began a romance with Terry Hall from another band known as the Specials. The two of them co-wrote the song about their efforts to keep the affair on the down low as Hall already had another girlfriend.
The Go-Go’s very up-tempo version was a monster smash in the U.S. while Hall recorded a much slow version with his new band, Fun Boy Three. That version became a hit in the UK.
Listen long enough and you’ll hear both versions here at BoomtownAmerica.com!
