"We Close Our Eyes’ was released in the spring of 1985 , and it reached No5 in the UK charts and became a top 10 hit in the USA.
This success was followed by three further UK top 10 hits – ‘Call Me’, ‘Goodbye Girl’ and ‘Don’t Look Down’. The album 'Go West' sold 1.5 million copies worldwide and remained on the UK chart
for 83 weeks , establishing Richard Drummie and Peter Cox as one of the greatest songwriting duos to emerge in the 1980’s . In 1986 they won the Brit Award for ‘Best British Newcomer’ - the one BRIT which is decided by the listening public.
Their second album ‘Dancing On The Couch’ was released in 1987.
The singles ‘True Colours’, ‘I Wanna Hear It From You’ and ‘The King Is Dead’ were all top 30 hits . In 1992 their third album ‘Indian Summer’ was released . Written and recorded in California , it further justified legendary producer Arif Mardin's early description of
Go West as ‘modern Motown’.
'Indian Summer' included the single ‘King Of Wishful Thinking’, the opening song in the hugely successful film ‘Pretty Woman’. The film's soundtrack has sold over 10 million copies worldwide . ‘King Of Wishful Thinking’ received ASCAP awards in 1991 and 1992 as one of the most played songs on American radio .
