Song of the day: An American Underdog – "Thunder Island"

December 5, 2012

I’ve mentioned this before (two weeks ago), but there’s a tribute album about to be released and it’s entitled Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock. There’s a Facebook page for it to keep you and me up to date with its progress, and it’s brought to you by someone or something called “Monsters Of Lite Rock”. (Is it me, or does the phrase “Monsters Of Lite Rock” look like an oxymoron?)

The makers of the album have been a wee bit secretive about what tracks are going to appear on it, but a little while ago they did let people know that one of the tracks will be Michael Carpenter‘s version of Cliff Richard‘s We Don’t Talk Anymore“.

This is going to be another track on Drink A Toast…:

An American Underdog – “Thunder Island (2012)
