Here's a song that I have no recollection of, and is pretty wonderful. It's a tune from New Jersey band Franke and the Knockouts (not "Frankie") called "Sweetheart," which hit #10 in 1981. This video's pretty amazing, too. I'd never seen it before. Hall and Oates fans should eat this up.
Franke and the Knockouts were only together for a few short years, but don't cry for frontman Franke Previte—he went on to write "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" and "Hungry Eyes" for Dirty Dancing, so it's safe to assume he has been living out the past couple decades by swimming in gigantic piles of money, Uncle Scrooge-style. Meanwhile, drummer Tico Torres went on to join another Jersey band by the name of Bon Jovi. Franke and the Knockouts' catalog was just reissued last week—the Greatest Hits disc back in print for the first time in 10 years, and their original albums back in print for the first time since the early '80s.
