Go West – “King of Wishful Thinking” – (1990)

This is a great tune, originally used in the 1990 film Pretty Woman – and also featured on its soundtrack. It was released on Go West’s 1992 album Indian Summer as well. There is a very 90s dance beat backing the vocals – there is even a brass section that gives it a hint of tropical-ness (or it does to me, anyway). It was a top ten in the U.S. and Australia and it’s a song I’ve always liked since the first time I heard it. Definitely worth a listen if you don’t know it.
