Musical Interlude: King of Wishful Thinking (1990)

Go West made one last run at the charts in 1990, contributing "King of Wishful Thinking" to the soundtrack to the Julia Roberts-Richard Gere romantic comedy, "Pretty Woman". It had been 5 years since the duo debuted with "We Close Our Eyes", and you'd think they'd make the most of a second chance, but nothing came of a follow-up.

A song I still enjoy listening to!

I don't know why they never had another follow up - there could be a million reasons. They got a whole lot than most musicians! The "Pretty Woman" soundtrack was killer!

I had the soundtrack on tape after seeing the movie. Best track on the album, actually.

Too many acts were left by the wayside back then because everyone wanted to be on MTV.
