Day 27: Today’s Writing Song

Throwback to the 1980s. I love these songs!

EYES OF A STRANGER — Payolas

There is a video version (below), but the ending of the vocals is cut off, along with the great drum section from after 4:00 to about 4:40.

“The Payolas (or Payola$) were part of Vancouver’s new wave of bands and active in the Canadian music scene for a decade from the late 1970s, recording several albums and singles that were Canadian chart hits. They disbanded in 1988, but reformed again from 2003 to 2008, issuing a new EP in 2007″ (source: Wikipedia).

“The band also played as The Payola$, Paul Hyde and the Payolas, and Rock and Hyde” (source: Wikipedia).

Dirty Water by Rock and Hyde was another great song.
