    That is a good one. Tommy James is underrated

    The lead singer sounds like the lead singer of James.

    "You think you're so pretty"

    I always think that song is somebody else.

    Good tune!

    A good song that I don't hear very often anymore.
    Very typical of the time, with awesome classic bass riff, and progressive rock style keyboard solo.

    Sugarloaf
    "Green-Eyed Lady"
    1970

    I think the 7 minute play time has something to do with it.

    I don't remember it from back then either. I guess I've learned to like it from hearing it in the occasional countdown...

    The Power Station - I wish they had stayed together longer. That rhythm section was killer. Palmer was a cool singer too.

    The Power Station
    "Some Like It Hot"
    1985

    Amen.
    They were excellent, and made me realize how much musicianship there really was in Duran Duran.

    I liked their cover version of "Get It On (Bang A Gong)":

    Not sure if I ever gave much thought to the lyrics of this song, but I always like the sound of the guitar.
