Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This is the Australian group's biggest hit in the United States. In it, a man thinks he has a chance at the love of a woman who seems to be above his station. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)
"Icehouse" is Australian slang for an insane asylum. The group had one other US hit a few months earlier with "Crazy," which charted at #14. They were much more popular in their native Australia, where "Electric Blue" was a #1 hit and continues to get airplay.
John Oates of the duo Hall & Oates wrote this with Icehouse lead singer Iva Davies. In 1986, Hall & Oates split up to pursue other interests; Daryl Hall released his second solo album that year, while Oates worked as a producer and songwriter. They reunited in 1988, releasing the album Ooh Yeah!.

I just love this song! The lyrics are excellent!

I agree, Travis, the 80s were filled with little gems like this one. I always liked the song.

Great song! God the 80's were filled with little gems like this one. I still of the lines "Oh I had a dream, For a moment I believed it was true
Oh I'd have given anything just to be there with you
Are you hiding somewhere behind those eyes?"
- Travis, grandisland, FL

Gramm co-wrote this gorgeous ballad and delivered an inspired vocal, but the song was the beginning of the end of his time with Foreigner.
