Chart Singles: #6 "Advert'ed".

Title: Playing With The Boy

This track was actually featured on the Gameboy's TV advert campaign in the UK back from the summer and all through the run up to christmas 1992, but even off the back of the ad campain the single sold poorly and just as the Street Fighter II single would two years later it spent a single week at 70 in the charts just barely scraping into the top 75.
