    ..yeah they seemed to come and go real quick...i worked in radio at the time...and saturated airtime...maybe all good songs ignored by the 'druids' go into cult status.
    Never hear Big Country much and one time they were huge.
    Here's two that were catchy but fell away to the vaults.

    The Fabulous Poodles - Mirror Star.


    Immaculate Fools - Immaculate Fools.

    Frankie Miller - Jealousy (1983)

    Do you know this guy? This tune is probably one of the three biggest hits ever around here. It's been 30 years and more on the radio.
