The Living Years – Mike + the Mechanics (1989)
Originally a side-project for Genesis guitarist Mike Rutherford, this English band reached its commercial peak (at least in the US) with this single and album. They stopped charting in the US in the early 90’s, but they continued to make substantial appearances on UK charts until 2000, when vocalist Paul Young died of a heart attack. Using remaining vocalist Paul Carrack (featured on this track), they limped along before disbanding in 2004 due to Carrack’s focus on his solo work. In 2009, Rutherford announced a new incarnation of the Mechanics with a new line-up, and they released a studio album last year. They continue to perform.
