Living in a world (turned upside down) - Private Lives

The radio station I listened to in the first half of the 1980's was very much oriented towards the UK charts. Even if songs didn't make it into the Dutch charts, you would hear the latest sounds from Britain, and that would give you a good idea of what was going on on the other side of the North Sea.

Private Lives was a band that never made it in Europe. They didn't even make it in the UK, as only this song, 'Living in a world (turned upside down)' reached the lower regions of the singles charts.
It's a classy, stylish song, with a melody that stays in your head once you've heard it. I loved it in the eighties and I was happy to find this single almost a decade later. Much to my surprise, it was a Dutch pressing!

My collection: 7" single no. 1832
Found: Record Palace, Amsterdam, January 13, 1993
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Living in a world (turned upside down)' / 'Breakup'
