Thompson Twins singles during MFD


I recently caught Thompson Twins' Tom Bailey in concert and the next week received my copy of his new album from PledgeMusic, so I've been sucked down a TTwins rabbit hole of sorts. Nothing is likely to change my mind that the group's 1985 album, Here's to Future Days is their best (an underrated gem IMHO), but it's been fun revisiting their back catalog. So here's a look at their charted US singles through 1985. FWIW, if you take out "The Gap," this was pretty much Bailey's setlist. I ain't complaining.
