I'm trying to find evidence for a 1986/87 Australian release of this on either 7" or 12". So far, I haven't found anything. Does anybody have any info?

My Favorite Song From The Late 80's

If I have to choose my favorite song made between 1986 and 1989, this is it, and it's also the last good song ever put out by Midnight Star. By 1987, the Calloway brothers had left the band to form, you guessed it, Calloway. The group quickly bombed and by '92 had died out. This is just another example of band members trying to be slick and greedy. Once the brothers left, Midnight Star bombed out just as well and has never been the same. The Calloway brothers should have stayed on with the band and Midnight Star would have ended up becoming a dynasty group like The Whispers. There's an old saying: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
