The Hooters have today’s almost forgotten track

This band is one of the great forgotten bands of the 80s (there are many) but I’ve never been able to figure out why…they had a number of fine hits, including this one, and then, later, produced both Cyndi Lauper and Joan Osborne to great success when they set their own band aside…they continue to receive covers of the songs they write for others, and that all must be more lucrative than pursuing more albums by The Hooters as they seem to have disappeared completely as performers…but Eric Bazilian and Rob Hyman not only have their own songs, like this one, to keep the cash flow happening, but the multi platinum She’s So Unusual by Cyndi and many others…there’s nothing about any of their work that I don’t like, and I just wish they’d pursued a career as an act in addition to their production work…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.

Great Tune, Great Talents.

They obviously must be happy with the choices made but I agree they could have and should have had more Charted Records of their own.

A Very interesting story indeed, thanks.
