    This is ok, but despite not being at all my fave OMD track, nothing beats the original and certainly not the live-version that the band plays nowadays.

      The original OMD is a classic but this is pretty good as well. Nice fun feel to it

        Why this and Nicky&Nicky have the same female intro that isn't in OMD song?

          Its just so happy and upbeat, bright and positive. Gives you a feeling that anything is possible.

            When I first started collecting italo-disco seriously this was up there with my most wanted records.
            And it was definitely not an easy record to find then.
            10 or so years later it still counts for me as one of Robyx's best productions, and equal to his early records as 'Savage', I'm also a big fan of OMD but I think this version is actually better.. the intro and the break at 2:50 are really perfection for my ears.
            As for the suggested version by 'Nicky and Nicky', it's really the same music with some different effects and (imo) inferior vocals.

            Strange then to see these negative comments and ratings.. yes taste is subjective, but if you find this 'garbage' then maybe time to try another genre.

                Sorry, a horrible record in my opinion. This tingle tingle sound drives me crazy.
                I bit better then the lombardoni 12''
                Got the same bad feelings with Claudio Mingardi "Starman"

                  if you are accidentally here, hearing this Italo cover for the first time and you do NOT aware of THIS, go there first before opening your pocket!
                  if your taste like mine, you will thank me later <3
