Share: The Other Ones "We Are What We Are"

I was just listening to this great track from 1987 tonight and realized it's probably not widely available and most likely forgotten by most, so I thought I'd share it here. It reached a modest #53 on the Billboard Hot 100. It's ripped from their UK self-titled CD. A few years back I also re-created the "Vocal Edit" version which was on the USA 12" Promo, so I am uploading that as well.

I didn't recognize the song from the title. I only knew of "Holiday". However, upon listening, I vaguely remember hearing this song. I really like it!!! Thanks again, Fred, especially for the FLAC! :mrgreen:

Glad this has found an audience here. "Holiday" was the Top 40 hit, and it's definitely an excellent song, but I've always loved this one!

:D :D I played this on my college radio show in 1987!!!

I had just taken the late Wednesday and Thursday night shifts at my college station and this song was in a pile of promos I found in the corner one evening. Great song!
