Wishful Thinking

An elegantly poised, string-swept number from new-wave intellectuals China Crisis, and a truly refreshing change from the then-ongoing musical histrionics perpetuated by the likes of Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet, "Wishful Thinking" reached a respectable number nine in 1983. Sadly, this minor gem (featuring the judicious use of an oboe) would remain the band's highest chart placing, even up until their dissolution in the mid-1990s. Check out the atmospheric, narrative-driven promo clip here.
