"The Captain Of Her Heart" by Double was/is one of the myriad of tracks from the 80s that might be presented in a "Best-Of" compilation, which to me is a far better circumstance that songs who do not even place.
""The Captain of Her Heart" is a single by the Swiss duo Double in 1985. Taken from their 1985 album Blue, the song is a ballad about a girl waiting in vain for her absent lover to return. The song was an international success, reaching #8 in the UK Singles Chart and #16 on the Billboard Hot 100.I did not know they were a Swiss band until wikipedia-ing for this post too LOL :p
In a retrospective review of the song, Allmusic journalist Stewart Mason suggested that the song is "one of the great lost one hit wonders of the mid-1980s." Mason wrote: "The Swiss duo never managed to capitalize on this song's casual sophistication and melodic grace, but it remains a glorious anomaly" (Wiki)
