VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Billy Ocean – ‘When The Going Gets Tough (The Tough Get Going)’
January 15, 2018
The ultimate ’80s track from the ultimate ’80s party starter, ‘When The Going Gets Tough (The Tough Get Going)’ would have passed into pop folklore with or without Michael Douglas’ help.
Yet the sight of Hollywood’s most leonine leading man (along with Danny Devito and Kathleen Turner, all from the ‘Jewel of the Nile’ movie the song soundtracked) grooving along behind our very own Billy Ocean is enough to warm the coldest of hearts.
And if you still doubt the song’s star power, simply go to a place where people gather and shout ‘When the going gets tough’.
Ten to one at least half those present, young and old alike, will know what to do.
