Yay for my favorite War song, the criminally forgotten "Galaxy."


Seriously?

These lyrics are way worse than "Sometimes I don't speak right..."

I don't think the lyrics were meant for much beyond playground double-dutch.  I treat it purely as a dance track, and that piano groove just floors me.
“The choir of children sing their song.  They've practiced all year long.  Ding dong.  Ding dong.  Ding dong.”

The Brits love '80s Kool & the Gang far more than we Americans do.  This is the only place I've heard "Misled" in the past 18 years.  Heavy as a Chevy, indeed.

Smokey's "Goin' to a Go-Go".

"Ghetto Child"  -- fab lyric, and shoulda been a bigger hit here (it went top ten in the UK).

Ooh, a Philly twin-spin: "You Make Me Feel Brand New" followed by "Ghetto Child."  I miss socially-conscious chart hits.

OMGWTFLOL!  J-5 "Lookin thru the Windows". A personal fave. I was crushed when this wasn't a bigger hit.

Methinks the strings and arrangement borrowed a little too brazenly from those of "Never Can Say Goodbye" for their own good.  A fine tune, though.
