''I was living in Ireland about a year later, and 'Through The Barricades' came to me in one evening. About two in the morning, lyrics started appearing in my head and I picked up a guitar - this has never happened to me before. I felt the song was leading me itself.'' - Gary Kemp
''It's a love song, which is what I know best. It's a Romeo & Juliet song - two people trying to have a relationship that wasn't really allowed." - Gary Kemp
''"That song is a way of all 5 of us embracing each other metaphorically on stage." - Gary Kemp
