    Best Go West Song?

    Go West made a comeback on the Japanese spoof show Banzai! and made me wonder - what was your favourite Go West tune?

    We close our eyes.

    Pity Go West never went any further than they did. To me they are almost on parr with Tears for Fears in that they had a brief string of hits and then were never heard from again.

    I voted for We Close Our Eyes. It was between that or Goodbye Girl. I like most of their songs and I like to listen to their greatest hits compilation.

    I voted for "We close our eyes", but my actual favorite Go West song is their remake of Bobby Caldwell's "What you won't do for love" which is on their "Indian Summer" release.

    My vote went to "Call Me". I loved all the songs listed in the poll, but I hardly (if ever) here "Call Me", hence my vote!!!

    Call Me got my vote. They were very underrated and their lead vocalist had a very distinctive and talented voice

    Honestly, I only recall King of Wishful Thinking. I liked that song; therefore, I voted for it.

    Re: Best Go West Song?

    I voted for Call Me.

    However, Don't Look Down is another great song that's not on the list.

    I vote for King of Wishful Thinking.
    Faithful was another good one, and their cover of Tracks of My Tears.
    Peter Cox has a great voice.
