#1980-63: Pleasure, “Glide”

And here we have yet another HOT 100 One-Hit Wonder. Though the band took this song to #10 on the Billboard R&B chart, it stalled at #55 on the HOT 100 in 1979. It’s official peak for the ’80s is #63.

This is, again, one of those songs I don’t recall hearing on the radio when I was growing up. It has a somewhat Earth, Wind and Fire feel, what with the multi-tracked vocals and occasional space-sound effects.

Not a whole lot of lyrics in this one. Must have been a good song to dance to. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Memorable lyric: “Caught the bus to go downtown. Bus broke down, downtown bound. Left the bus, flagged down a cab. The driver said, I want all your cash.”
