That song never did anything for me. Got a ton of airplay on pop radio, btw. But the band that sang it had another cut off of that same album and, at least to my ears, was a courious little song that I liked better.
Anyway, this song dosen't show up on any "Best Of" lists so ya know ol' eddstarr's gonna drop it right here on Retro Junk!
I may have missed the disco era, but I know a good 70s tune when I hear one.
Ya know I've been pondering disco for months, searching for something good enough to post here. Anita's "Ring My Bell" is a good one but I want to share an opinion with you.
I wonder if you guys can imagine what it was like for me back in the late 70's. One of the places me and my friends liked to go was the T.G.I. FRIDAY'S restaurant in Phoenix, AZ. because it had and outdoor bar with live music and a dance floor under the stars. Thanks to the crowd the place drew it quickly became disco central.
I felt like I was drowning in a disco sea and it influenced my feelings for that musical genre. So you can understand how great it was to hear everything that stood out as not disco.
That's the only way I can explain the popularity of this 70's hit by Chris Rea. Yep, here's another case of Great Britain to the Rescue. Don't be fooled by this slow dance favorite, the impact of this song has been dulled by time. Back in the day this little tune got major airplay in media markets around the country and I think it belongs here on Retro Junk.
