Howard Jones - New Song
Happy Tuesday! We are on "N" in the great Jimmy Knight Radio A-Z marathon. In 1983 I was just getting into music, and boy did we have choices. There was New Wave, Pop, R&B, and Rap tunes were just getting into the mix. As an 11-year-old boy, my ears were getting all sorts of sounds and I was loving all of them. New Wave was exploding and one of my favorites to come out of the genre was Howard Jones. In '83 he hit the charts with New Song. The song was a modest hit at #27 on the Hot 100, but in the UK it was a #3 smash. I was introduced to Ho-Jo with this tune and I became a fan of everything he is done and own all of it!
