For about 10 minutes in the late 80's, people cared about The Smithereens. I mean, I always did, but I don't count. The pride of Carteret, NJ, they've been making great rock music for over thirty years. But in 1989 and 1990, they finally broke through to the mainstream for a little bit.
This song, which combined the rock and power pop the band was so well known for writing and performing, was the third single from their album 11. It wasn't their eleventh album, but their fifth - the title was an homage to the movie Ocean's 11. Actually, they still haven't done 11 albums..... OK, I'm off on a tangent. Enjoy the music.
