Sunday earworm: Santana's 'Winning'



For YEARS now, I've belived Santana's tune Winning was a late '70s tune. But no, it landed squarely in 1981 -- and the fashion of those in the video should be the dead-giveaway.

Winning, with lead vocals by Alex Ligertwood, was off the Zebop! album and reached No. 17 on the charts that year. The '80s weren't really the big decade for Carlos Santana, who found greater success in the decades before and after our favorite one.

This tune has been burrowing into the brains of both myself and Stuck in the '80s podcast co-host Sean Daly (who interviewed Carlos on Thursday) all week. And now it's in your's as well. Enjoy.
