Funky Friday Hangin' On A String

Back in 1985 Brit trio Loose Ends broke into the charts with their amazingly good single Hangin' On A String (Contemplating) . In the long standing tradition of Brits trying to emulate the US r'n'b sound and not always suceeding, these guys actually did a great job. This track, to me, is on a par with the stuff that Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis were doing with the S.O.S. Band et al. Sweet programmed beats, some nice guitar and a catchy as hell song & great vocals all make this tune a true '80s classic.

Nice blog. Come check out mine and take my survey to help decide which religion is right. Christianity and Hinduism are neck-and-neck, so we need your vote!

Yep, nice one. Haven't heard that one in a while. You should get up with some Young Disciples and Courtney Buchanan too. Anyways, beautiful track, beautiful days.
Keep up the good work!
