Song of the Day: 'Doctor! Doctor!' by Thompson Twins

Today is the second-to-last day of my series of Songs That Peaked at No. 11 and I'm already feeling separation anxiety -- as a kid I entertained myself for hours on end by compiling lists ... but here goes it: Thompson Twins played an outsized role in my youth, a band I adored and saw in concert countless times, dating back to their show at Royal Oak Music Theatre in 1983 when I was 15.

Tom, Alannah and Joe were MTV superstars, although their flame didn't burn long. When all was said and done -- can you believe there were only two Twins by 1986?! -- they had just three U.S. Top 10 hits to their name. And shockingly, "Doctor! Doctor!" wasn't one of them.

OMG, I remember this song. All my friends had those same haircuts, too. Good times
