Don't You Want Me, safe guess.  Was bigger than Fascination.
Penthouse and Pavement?  Can't remember their hit

/I remember that one b/c the video was in rotation on MTV.  Secretly enjoyed that song - would sneak listening to it along with disco Ministry.

west.la.lawyer: Penthouse and Pavement?  Can't remember their hit


In the UK they didn't really break through until their second album, The Luxury Gap, which was much more commercial than P&P.
Let Me Go, Come Live With Me, Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry, Temptation were all hits. The latter being a massive hit & consequently played to within an inch of its life.
If I recall correctly they re-released it as a remix in 1992. As if we needed to hear it all over again.

Thanks! It's great to hear that from someone who is actually talented. As opposed to me, who just gets lucky once in a while. I like to say I have good anti-design sense, which is I know when something looks bad, but I have no idea how to reliably make it look good.

Just don't let anyone else do the conversion, that often doesn't work out so well.

My first task when I worked in Fort Worth was to set up a goods inwards QA department.
Not one of the inspectors they hired knew what a millimetre was. Let alone a vernier caliper.
