UPDATE: A former student of mine, Wilson Beazley, came through with “Up All Night” (see below). I‘ll say this – I never thought a millennial would come through first with a song from 1982. However, if find it refreshingly great. I am always happy to hear from younger rock & roll listeners. It’ll be in tomorrow night’s Fuzz Factory playlist.
Help a rock & roll brother out???
Does anyone in this universe have a digital file of “Up All Night” by the Boomtown Rats? I’m not a huge fan of the band but that song is one of my early 80’s favorites. For years, I’ve been unsuccessfully searching for a copy to purchase or trade. Let me know if you do. I’ll send you a song in return. I have 20,065 songs in my iTunes for you to choose from.
Here’s the video to jog your memory. Like most of early MTV, the music holds up better than the video. However, unlike much of the 80’s, the music holds up very well. Still catchy as hell.
