Big Daddy: Meanwhile...Back in the States

This may be Big Daddy’s masterpiece: they blew up from a five-piece to an eight-piece and took on Lionel Richie, Culture Club, Phil Collins and more; and in two minutes they will take you from never caring if you ever heard these songs again to wishing they could play at your wedding. In March 1985, Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” was at #13 in the U.K.; Big Daddy’s Pat Boone-ified cover version was at #25. That actually happened on this planet, and this record is going to make you very happy. Get the audio on iTunes, and be sure to visit the band’s Website for details on the full discography.
