Although Kershaw performed at Live Aid, and played guitar on Elton John's 80's hit tune Nikita, his solo career faded as his music become less commercial causing any of his fans he might have had left to bail on him. He continued to write songs and produce in the early 90's and was the genius behind another Out There! classic, The One And Only performed by Chesney Hawkes. The One And Only was a huge hit in England peaking at #1 in 1991 and also did fairly well in the United States thanks to it's appearance in the movie, Doc Hollywood. He also wrote tunes for The Hollies and a 90's boy band by the name of Let Loose. Since then, he's worked with Bonnie Tyler, Elton John, and Michael W. Smith. He writes and produces, but only performs on occasion at festivals in England. I don't think he could even sell out a small club here in the U.S. Although if the performance were in New Jersey, I would go in an instant.
Other random notes about this song: It was featured in the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories video game in the mid-00's. Ricky Gervais was a fan of the tune, using the song on his HBO show, Extras as well as in a special feature "Living with Ricky" on his Politics DVD. VH1 ranked it as the 88th of the 100 greatest one-hit wonders of the 80's. Be sure to also check out the retro video below featuring Kershaw as an alien with a chroma-keyed suit? Got to love those 80's videos.
Ladies and gentlemen... "Wouldn't It Be Good" by Nik Kershaw (I'm sure you will say "Holy crap! I remember that song" once you watch the video below!)
