Martha Davis was another one hit wonder although unlike JD Souther the other day, she had previously visited the charts as part of the Motels (Total Control). I’m not sure what it is about this song that makes it stand out for me … in many ways, a typical example of a late 1980’s pop song but in some way, so much more than that. When writing these descriptions, I guess I should be telling you why I chose the song but in this case, I’m struggling to come up with a reason. Just a great song that I really enjoy listening to.
