It’s like Was it worth it?, but 30 years later, and #24 in the UK Singles Chart is an imperceptible dream.

I like that you quote Was it worth it?'s b-side.

I just made my wife watch the video in full and she said ‘that’s not the campest video I’ve seen’ - “oooh, do tell” I said - “watch Sam Smith’s How Do You Sleep?” she said. Ok, she may be right but I think we should maybe put it to a poll. Who has the campest vid - PSB or SAM? 😂😂😂

I'm happy to see again a video with Neil and Chris doing things!
But, as far as I see, am I the only one who prefer the way the radio version ends more than the video does?
I don't know why, but a song like this, with such a high energy, deserves an impactating final or at least a final!
No I completely agree. The radio version has a better ending but needs some of those extra lyrics/verses to make it perfect.

Reminds me of the album version of Thursday where the verse was painfully low in the mix and the radio version fixed that but was too short to make it worthwhile. Both are equally flawed.

Fade outs should be banned.

Video is great though!

It's so great to see them in a video again.

Made me feel a touch emotional!

This is a FUN video, great production. It must have been such a laugh to film.

Anyone notice the water in the champagne flutes?! Rock and roll 😂

Budget blown on the venue and dancing boys. There had to be cutbacks elsewhere.

So Was It Worth It !!
There should be an edit to mix both videos

Not a fan of this kind of vids neither was it worth it back then made me happy, dj culture to name one was far better video, those clubs videos are predictible, I hope it was just them walking in the street like in West End girls but in Berlin, is it that hard to get them walking in front of a camera on a nice street with a good filming ?

The venue is upstairs at Infernos in Clapham. On a wet Tuesday afternoon you couldn’t give that room away!

This video is perfect for the song, great vibe and something that is fun to match the vibe. Chris dancing really makes the video stand out! I'm all about a West End girls type vid of them walking elusively in the streets but not sure what track off Hotspot would fit that mood?

I may be late to the party but this video is really fantastic, full of energy and makes you feel to stop what you are doing in half, and run to the nearest club to dance your head off until the first hours of the morning. And trying to represent all genders and all races was a great gesture.

I was first irritated by the song but it quickly became my favourite and along with this year's PSB masterpiece "DECIDE", I can't stop listening to them back to back.

By the way, the dancers in the video are the most sympathetic ones since the dancers in the Performance tour. I really like them and find their moves sincere and natural, a well-thought casting. The last group dance scene seems like a tribute to the end of Kylie's Spinning Around video among many others. Kudos and thanks to our Boys :)
