Much of my early musical exposure – outside of long trips to visit the grandparents – came from my sister [older by 7 years]. As such, a lot of those influences were as eclectic as the variety of one-hit-wonders that were released in the 80’s.
One of the bands that she had in rotation was Glass Tiger – mostly their Thin Red Line album which featured two singles that got a lot of airplay (here in the states, anyway, if I am remembering right), and at least a couple more that could have gotten airplay (and may have, in their native Canada).
Anyway, my sister’s musical tastes influenced (scarred?) me enough that years later I tried finding said album, and had to settle for just a Greatest Hits collection. This weeks selection is one of those tracks that did well in the US.
