Musical Interlude: Lay Your Hands On Me (1985)

It is no secret that there weren't really any identical or fraternal twins in the British combo Thompson Twins. The three primary performers were vocalist-guitarist Thom Bailey, bassist Joe Leeway, and keyboard player-percussionist Alannah Currie. The band did have a pretty good run in the mid-80's, and this track, "Lay Your Hands On Me", from the album, "Here's To Future Days", was one of their best.

Bear in mind that the label listed on the video, uploaded by Tempek Tester, is their British label. Thompson Twins' US releases were through Arista. You just can't figure that stuff out sometimes........
