    As I live on an avenue I love driving up to my house singing the name of our street to this.
    Again, many hits in the U.K. as a solo artist and back with The Equals. He had Romancing the Stone which was US top 30 but not a hit in the U.K.

    Journey to the Center of the Mind was the only hit for the Amboy Dukes. Uncle Ted had a somewhat successful career afterward.

    Not sure which of Carrack's bands you mean, but...

    Ace released three albums. Mike and the Mechanics at least six. ;)

    Dexy's had a UK number 1 with 'Geno' two years before 'Come On...', and made number 7 with 'Jackie Wilson Said'.

    This is an international site. Isn't it? :D

    Great, great song - one that I can listen to anytime, anywhere. Perfect "power pop".
