Album: Desolation Boulevard (U.S.)
. . .
The song that put the Sweet back on AM radio in the U.S. has one of the most iconic — and parodied — openings of any song ever recorded. Over a almost-rockabilly drumbeat from Mick Tucker, lead singer Brian Connolly campily checks in with the rest of his band, none of whom seemed to be too thrilled to be there, judging by their affectedly fey answers. It’s also the first hook in a song that is a veritable tackle box.
