ROCKPILE - 1980 - "If Sugar Was As Sweet As You"
I love these guys. Dave Edmonds' "Girls Talk" is a classic album, and this Rockpile material is pretty great too. Nick Lowe? Thanks for the memories. I would say that they sometimes neglected the hooks in these songs, or put in some weak ones. That hurt them at the bank. The bands that really made it hammered those hooks home like their lives depended on it, and I guess they did depend on those hooks. Songs like this are great stuff though, nevertheless. There's more to life than news, weather and sports.
