Modern English - I Melt With You

Happy Tuesday!

It's time for one of our favorite One Hit Wonders. I picked this song today because the Chicago area is going from +2 degrees to +32 degrees today and Sunny. I am really hoping it melts some of this thick layer of ICE that is everywhere.

How did a song from 1983 from the New Wave band Modern English become so popular? I Melt With You is known by so many because of the MTV era, and the movie Valley Girl. However, the song only hit #78 on the Hot 100 in 1983. It was re-recorded in 1990 and managed to get 2 notches higher and peaked at #76.

Make sure you check out Dan Sweeney's One Hit Wonders this Wednesday night from 8-10 PM CST on www.thevarietystation.com.

Stay Warm!
