Alright the other tab for this song is incorrect so I'm postin this one. I DID NOT make
 this tab and DO NOT take credit for it. This tab is 100% correct, the bassist of 
Kajagoogoo, Nick Beggs, is the one one provided this tab to a magazine. I got the tabs
 for this out of Bass Guitar Magazine. This is in standard tuning, and is in common time.

The chorus, right in the beginning part:


G----7-----------12-12--|
D-----------------------|
A--5--------------------|
E------3-5-1-3----------|

The G-A-F-G (3-5-1-3 on the E string) is wrong. It should actually be one octave HIGHER than shown in the tab. Sorry I dunno how to really fix that. And yes, it's wrong in the published version ('Beggs on Bass') and hence here.

If you watch different videos you will see he actually plays it boths ways. Guess it depends on his bass and/or his mood. Same with the first ending. So technically both seem to be correct.

i'm sure that is ok, if you watch and listen to the video, you can see that is not impossible to play in this way... but is tricky, of course. Good transcription, anyway ;)
