Five Star - Somewhere Somebody

From 1987, this was the third and final single released from the "Between The Lines" album. No promotional video was made to accompany this single as the band were too busy with the "Children Of The Night Tour". The live performance of the song became its 'official' video.

For it's release, the song was given a remix by Shep Pettibone. In my opinion the Shep Pettibone Edit is far superior to the album edit that was released, and I think if they had used the Pettibone edit for the Single version of the song (as they had done with "The Slightest Touch" earlier that year) then the track may well have been a bigger hit. The song's chart position of #23 became the group's lowest charting UK Top 40 single since "Love Take Over" in 1985.
