Song of the Day: '(What) In the Name of Love' by Naked Eyes

I remember this disturbingly '80s video almost as much as the single from the duo's follow-up album to the one that had "Always Something There to Remind Me" and "Promises, Promises" (the 12" mix features vocals from Madonna) -- and get a load of Lisa Vanderpump as the poker co-conspirator! What I didn't recall was that the band called it a day when it fared less successfully -- who gives up after two albums, the second of one had a single that sneaked into the Top 40? -- as I've always heard they keep going on those '80s Rewind tours. Turns out it's just Pete Byrne out there reliving the good old days: Fisher sadly died in 1999 at age 42, following bowel surgery for cancer.
