    Back in the early 80's Duran Duran used to do this live and killed it. They even put on a B side of a single.

    I liked the Duran Duran version except that they had a drum machine ticking right through it so the gaps between the verses were exactly on-beat, rather than the rubato feel which Harley gives it.
    BTW I’ve played this song with two bands — Abigail’s Party back in the early ‘90s and Bedlam House Band at almost every gig in the last 2 years. It’s a great song to play. (We stretch those gaps!)
