....wait....so anyone who has rated this track is a philistine? 

6.8 is a not too terrible average rating for a somewhat obscure (to U.S. ears) artist.  And I've helped the cause in increasing the rating; mine's at an 8.

I hear Nektar. Maybe Camel. Maybe Wishbone Ash.

Puns and all, I find this to be a driving track, good for working or working out, and I've rated it an 8.

Now, 4 tracks ago I commented that BillG had played a set of 7 of my 8s in a row, followed by a 9 and 7, and another 4 8s (and counting) so I'm going to consider this to be my favorite batch of tracks on RP in my 11ish years here.

Long Live RP!

Early- Mid 70's San Francisco bay area was when I was turned onto him.
Unique sound to the region? But he was greatly appreciated and got a lot of local radio air-time.

Still a unique sound to him after 40 years.

Gets an 8

I hear a similarity in the harmonies to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.  Is it a California sound?  Anyway I like it very much.

Kihnspuracy! Epic. 

Remembered the name but had to look up the hits: "The Breakup Song (They Don't Write 'Em)" and "Jeopardy" (as in "Our Love's in Jeopardy" which Weird Al Yankovich turned into "I Lost on Jeopardy"). Maybe there were other notable ones; this is far better than anything else of his that I remember. 

And yeah, I think it was The Greg Kihn Band. One of his albums was called "Kihnspiracy" which made me groan at the time.  

 
 
Apparently the punning thing was based on some OCD issue: he kept doing it. One of the first albums from the Greg Kihn band was "Rockihnroll". And then...

From Allmusic.com:

 He continued in a more commercial vein through the '80s with a series of pun-titled albums: Kihntinued (1982), Kihnspiracy (1983), Kihntageous (1984), and Citizen Kihn (1985). 

Other albums include: "True Kihnfessions", "Kihnspicuous Taste", "Unkihntrollable", "Kihn of Hearts" and "Next of Kihn."

As Hogtownmike and Proclivities have noted, the design on many of the album covers is pretty cheesy.

The live version includes a really cool "fade out".

Ok....this gets played immediately after "Le Vent Nous Portera". Am I right in hearing a great resemblance? Which came first?

I always loved this song... especially the very end.

The original album that this song is from, Next of Kihn, was quite good (it was their third album.)  They were a very popular San Francisco Bay Area club band in the 80s.

It could be worse, at least they used a fun typeface; that overlapping is pretty dreadful though.

I would never guessed that I'd like a Greg Kihn song.... what was his "big hit" again? weren't they called "The Greg Kihn Band"?

Great catchy tune, but you gotta laugh at the 80s cover photo.
