Inner City recording[edit]

  • In 1989, the song was recorded by American dance group Inner City. It was the group's fifth single and their fifth consecutive UK top 20 hit, reaching No. 12. Along with "Good Life", this is the only other Inner City song to make the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 76. While all the group's previous singles had topped the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the US, this was the first not to do so, although it still reached No. 8.[2]
