Natural Mystics - Runaway Love

Don't know anything about them but I distinctly remember listening to this song, released in 1979, on a 7" single when I was like 13 or 14. Lost forever to imagined memories, youtube has allowed me to experience the song again after 35 years. The tiny guitar solo (beginning roughly at 1:35) is sublime.

Lovers rock indeed.

OK, so with the help of The Googles, it appears that they were British, released a couple of albums in the early eighties, and fronted by Ashley Sommers (lead guitar, vocals) and Chev Mastin (bass).

Songs for You

Literally the greatest songs ever written. Yes, that includes anything written by Irving Berlin.
