West End girls

‘West End Girls’ was released on October 28, 1985 and goes to #1 in the UK in January. It was subsequently #1 in USA, Canada, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand and Norway, selling 1.5 million copies. “People endlessly ask us what it’s like having a #1” said Neil at the time. “But what it feels like is vaguely nothing. It feels like having a cup of tea”.
