My Music Monday

You don't know from Rockpile, I'm guessing.  But you might and just don't know it. 

Rockpile was comprised of Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Billy Bremner and Terry Williams. So the band on Lowe's and Edumunds' "solo" disks of the late 70s and early 80s were in fact Rockpile 

The band itself, had one release back in 1988 called Seconds of Pleasure, which is where today's selection, "Heart" is pulled. Bremner takes lead and for whatever reason the YouTube clip bills them as Billy Bremner & Rockpile. 

I thought "Heart" would be good for Valentine's Day.

This is a song that could have appeared on Lowe's solo disk, Pure Pop for Now People  (titled in the UK as: Jesus of Cool).  It's two and one half minutes of pure pop (bordering on rockabilly) that should have been a hit State-side but was not.

Interesting how some music is a big hit in Europe and unheard here
