A promise this band made? They stuck around long after the '80s




In the four years of the Lost and Found feature, we've never had a good slogan. How about a slogan that no one has heard before like "Let's Make the '80s Great Again!"? Oh well, the only promises we are making is that we will continue to dig up the best lost music songs and videos of the '80s like The Promise You Made from Cock Robin.

While politicians continue to make promises they can't keep, '80s bands were often big on promises too. When Cock Robin's single When Your Heart Is Weak became a Top 40 hit in 1985, a promising chart career looked likely in Cock Robin's future. However, the L.A. band's follow up single The Promise You Made never even charted in their home country although it was a Top 10 hit in many European countries.

This is the third video we've feature by Cock Robin and today's The Promise You Made is more eye candy with the sexy appeal of co-lead singers Anna LaCazio and Peter Kingsberry and the always smiling face of red-headed drummer Lou Molino. As the years have gone on, Cock Robin has more or less become the work of Kingsberry who now calls France home. A new Cock Robin album entitled Chinese Driver was released earlier this year.
