W ell it’s all been sleepwalking after a fashion, hasn’t it? I know where Robert Plant and Lou Gramm stand, but Daltrey’s always been a drifter. He gives you a good fight, might even charm you, but he’s here to collect a reward. When the money’s gone, he’ll be back with a new producer and another dozen bullets forged by professional tunesmiths. So it went with Parting Should Be Painless, for which this was the advance single. “Walking In My Sleep” actually stayed on the US charts for nine weeks, which is impressive until you recall that even a turd will float to the surface if it’s light enough. The B side is a Eurythmics’ tune, “Somebody Told Me,” that Daltrey gives a choppy reading. Daltrey’s voice wags my tail (blame The Who), but parting with more than three bucks for the 7-inch single would be painfully shortsighted since you can probably buy the entire album (which includes both tracks) for a dollar more. However, the 12-inch single is a different story: it features a version of "Gimme Some Lovin'" not available elsewhere.
