Which Band Sang This Song?

Which Band Sang This Song?

Although,I know it wasn't by "Badfinger" this band sure sounded like a New Wave version of "Badfinger" and the lead singer sure sounded alot like their former lead singer Tom Evans.And I know it wasn't him either.It was definately by a band.Here are the lyrics.

Any takers.I believe this song was the early 80's.

I can't believe you guys out there remember this band! I knew them very well, and it really pleases me to see that they have'nt been completely forgotten! They were pretty popular on the local scene during those early days of the Power Pop movement, playi

Joey Molland now lives in Minneapolis. I run into him every so often. He's a really nice guy, and still seems really passionate about music.

THE Scooters! Wow I loved the Scooters....It's great to see their name mentioned. After the Scooters broke up Larry Lee became a record Producer, in fact he produced "Plastic Facts" by the Nu Kats for Rhino Records and after the Nu Kats broke up Bobby Wic
