Don’t let the musical snobs on here belittle your musical taste.
Oh. That's a given. Everyone can fuck off!
What's weird, though, is that I am typically cast in the role of musical snob based on my usual tastes. Obscurantist power pop, funk, weird ass Morricone, deep track classic rock, etc. So it's fun to see how the other half lives.
The reason I found the song in the first place is that I was making a Spotify playlist of songs that hit No. 16 (my favorite number) on various charts in 1980 or whatever year that was out. Why? Because I'm a dork and I drive a lot.
I include the UK chart among the charts I pick from. Saw the song, never heard it, gave it a listen, and dug it. Same way I found "Rasputin" by Boney M, another "band" (studio creation) that never made it here.
