Pop Classics Part 8 - Styx - Babe
Nope, I will not hang my head in shame. You should know by now I don't do "guilty pleasures". There is always something I have always loved about this song. there is a simple quality about it, something that lacks in most of today's' efforts in the "hit parade", where over-the-top production values rule.
Styx originally released "Babe" in 1979, and I picked up the 7" of this in a charity shop in Harrow a few years later and, have since helped it to reach a natural progression back into the charity shop cycle.
A pop classic for real. Lighters at the ready.
