I was looking for the same song and was drawing blanks.  Through my research of Tony D, I was able to finally find the answer :)

It was The Poor Righteous Teachers.  It was the first cut on the same CD with Rock that Funky Joint.  But I don't know the name of the song, or the CD name.  That song rocks!

The answer to the question was Poor Righteous Teachers. This was on their first album. The song in particular escapes me... but its them for sure.

I am a musician (singer / songwriter / guitarist) who is still heavily into the music and bands of the 1980s. I can answer virtually any question regarding who sang what or the words to most pop and rock songs from the 1980`s. I am particularly knowledgeable about the pop / rock music from 1986 - 1989. The Bangles, Bon Jovi, and Split Enz are groups I know virtually everything about--personally as well as musically. I also know a bit of alternative music and punk from the era. If I don't know the answer to your question, I will certainly use my resources to try to find the answer for you!


I am a musician and sing and write music. Music is my life.
