Bad English – When I See You Smile – One of my absolute favorite songs and it always brings a smile to my face when I hear it. Below is a bit of information about this song:
It is the second single of American/British hard rock band Bad English, taken from their self-titled debut album of the same name, released in 1989. The power ballad was a huge success and went on to become the band’s first and only US number one hit when it peaked there in the fall of 1989 for two weeks
In the video the band are performing on a stage, which contains close-up shots of its members. The footage was taken at one of their arena concerts. It shows Jonathan Cain‘s distinctive synthesizer opening and moves into the soft initial vocal work of John Waite. The tempo picks up with Deen Castronovo‘s drum work and Neal Schon‘s trademark guitar during which Waite becomes more emphatic vocally; the song finishes with Waite’s soft vocals.
