‘Wouldn’t It Be Good’ – by Nick Kershaw – Classic Hit or Miss

youtube

The second single from Kershaw’s debut solo album Human Racing, it was among his more popular singles spending three weeks at #4 in the UK charts and becoming a hit throughout Europe. It is also the song with which he is most closely associated in the U.S., where it narrowly missed going Top 40.  The lyrics are apparently inspired by the “the grass is always greener on the other side” saying.

Kershaw’s prior single, his debut, had failed to be a major hit, and it was on the strength of this record’s success that the earlier single, “I Won’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”, was promoted for a re-release. This time the single went all the way to #2 in the UK, becoming his highest-charting single there to date. [Source]

This song is often regarded at a One Hit Wonder, as it was Nicks only major US hit.
