Daily Boom 80's Throwback: The Hooters - 'Johnny B'

"It's a sleepless

night she's callin' your name
It's a lonely ride I know how you want her
Again and again you're chasin' a dream yeah
But Johnny my friend she's not what she seems

Johnny B how much there is to see

Just open your eyes and listen to me
Straight ahead a green light turns to red
Oh why can't you see oh Johnny B"

Back in the mid-eighties if you were living in Pennsylvania then you were very familiar with a group called The Hooters. They were from Philly and had a string of hits that landed on Billboard's hot 100. "And We Danced" and "All You Zombies" were probably the most popular but my favorite was "Johnny B". How popular were The Hooters? They actually opened the Philly portion of a huge ditty called Live Aid, one of the most star-studded benefit concerts of all time. 

Fast-forward more than 30 years and The Hooters are still around and on occasion, they do pop up to play a gig together. Check out "Johnny B" below.
