Daily Boom 80's Throwback: Honeymoon Suite 'What Does It Take'

"If I could grow wings
I would do anything
Just to keep you with me
Can't you see?"

Honeymoon Suite's "What Does It Take" is one of those songs that left a lasting impression on me. Not because it got tons of airplay way back in 1986 or because it was on every time I turned my boom box on. In fact, it didn't even crack the top 50 on Billboard's Hot 100. But it was part of my favorite radio station's Top 10 at 10 countdown for a really long time. It was one of those songs that was goodnight dedication material and had staying power for months.

You guys remember the goodnight dedication shows, right? One of those things that I really miss about good old live radio. I can remember hitting redial repeatedly trying to get through to make a dedication and for a long time, this was THE song of choice. 

Honeymoon Suite found moderate success back in the 80's but in truth they probably should have hit a lot harder than they did because they were really great. Like many of the other great bands to come out of the 80's, Honeymoon Suite still does perform together.
