Walking On Sunshine

The first of my W songs from 1985 is "Walking On Sunshine" by Katrina & the Waves. Which has always been a great song, but the original version is a little played out for me after 25+ years of ubiquity in commercials, movies, and TV shows. Here's a more understated duet version with "WOS" songwriter Kimberley Rew and Deni Bonet.

When I discovered Robyn Hitchcock's music in 1985, and learned that a few years prior, Robyn played in a band called the Soft Boys with the guitarist of Katrina & the Waves, it took me a little while to reconcile that reality, but I was helped by "Walking On Sunshine" being a fabulous song that deserved to be a worldwide hit.
