American Top 40 Flashback - Fine Young Cannibals
Pieced together from the remnants of The English Beat, a truly great band, Fine Young Cannibals featured Roland Gift, a gifted young vocalist who at the time came on like a modern-day version of Otis Redding. The band came out with two fine albums, and then - as far as I know - pretty much dropped off the face of the Earth.
But a handful of their songs still get played today, most notably this one. "She Drives Me Crazy," one of the best dance songs of its era, and the #1 song this week in 1989.
