@ Alan: sorry for being off topic, but in one of your posts above here you're wondering why does "Magic Touch" often get picked up for negative criticism... well, I just wonder why "Islands" does. It is because very few people in this board can stand Bonnie Tyler, or her performance of the song, or the song itself? If this is the case, well, I respect everyone's opinion, but I'd also like to state that IMHO there's nothing despicable about Bonnie Tyler, and that I absolutely love that song. It's actually my #2 all-time favourite song, #1 being not by Mike Oldfield.
As far as "Magic Touch" is concerned... well, as we say here in Italy, it makes me neither hot not cold, i.e. I'm completely indifferent to it. I love the video, tho'. Also, as far as I remember, Islands was conceived as a 'video album'... music which works well with certain images. I think all of the video renditions of the Islands songs (including TWC) work perfectly with the music, and I'm not disappointed at all about any of them... including TWC!!
