Though 1987's final first-wave Mr. Mister release, Go On
, fared disappointingly on the charts, this third single from that record has its moments of compelling bluster. However, association with a successful 1988 triumphant-against-the-odds-educator big-budget movie with the same title failed to assist the band in continuing to chase its aspirations. Part of this can be attributed to weaker material, but certainly the late-'80s rise of hair metal
could have contributed to the decline of such pop-flavored arena rock
. Probably with good reason, Mr. Mister will always be remembered for its three biggest hits, which also happen to be the group's finest efforts.
