Who knows Wah the time goes?

It's sinful, it's tragic. But enough about Pete Wylie's dancing! The song still sounds great!

Mildly Interesting Pop Fact(s): Sinful originally charted exactly twenty-five years ago, where it peaked at number 13 in this very week (well, the corresponding week in 1986). There's an alternative video for Sinful, sans embarrassing dancing and which feels strangely lacklustre in comparison to the one above. I suspect it may have been for the benefit of the American market or MTV, or both. Anyway, it's not great.

With backing from Liverpool compatriots The Farm, Pete Wylie re-recorded and re-released Sinful five years later, in 1991, where it scraped into the top 30. Never felt quite the same somehow, though.
