That CD still occupies a warm spot on my iPod.

Go down to Brixton and see Electric Avenue. Amazing area of London.

The original isn't on Spotify -- only re-recordings

Just another examply of why streaming services suck. You think of something you want to listen to, and the original recording isn't available. Or there isn't any version available.

Eddy Grant may have been a, "One hit wonder," in the U.S. but, "Electric Avenue," was a mega hit. It was on MTV every 3 hours for a couple months. Finding that song shouldn't be a problem. Apparently, unless you buy CD's, it is.

Powerman 5000 did a cover version a few years ago off of their cover album. It's awesome.

Eddy Grant's "Electric Avenue" is #126 on my list, "My favorite A-sides of the '80s." https://rateyourmusic.com/list/grund...s_of_the_80s_/

Re: Anyone remember Eddy Grant and "Electric Avenue?"

^ No taste in music. That song is at least the 114th best of the 80s, possibly 103rd.

(tongue in cheek post here, btw)
