I missed out on Japan as they happened, really liking this but it was late in their career. A guy at Bertlesmann gave me a copy of this and told me that i had to get into them - that I had missed something (I think I'd told him that they were a poor man's Duran Duran and I wasn't keen on them!) He was right and "Assemblage" the collection issued by Ariola soon afterwards covering their earlier stuff proved that they were a force in their own right. I loved this single and remember the "stop and listen moment" of them being on TOTPs. I don't think they survived for much longer as a band after this.
