"The Second Time" is the first single from Kim Wilde's 1984 album Teases & Dares. It was re-titled "Go for It" for the North American market.

The track was also Wilde's first release on the MCA record label. Her last few releases on her original label had failed to make an impact on the world's charts, but this one finally put her back into the limelight in several European countries, and made #29 in the UK. It also marked her second chart entry in the US, where it peaked at #65.

"The Second Time"/"Go for It" was also the first Wilde song of which there were several remixes released both commercially and promotionally on the 12" format. The B-side, "Lovers on a Beach" (an exclusive non-album track), was also extended for the 12" single in some nations.[1]
