Friday lost and found: Glass Moon remakes 'On a Carousel'

On Monday we featured The Hollies with a ‘80s remake of a ‘60s song. On Friday, we turn the tables and feature an ‘80s band with a remake of a ‘60s song by The Hollies.

In 1967, The Hollies reached No. 11 with On a Carousel. In 1982, North Carolina’s Glass Moon gave On a Carousel the ‘80s new wave/power pop treatment that resulted in Glass Moon lone Top 100 appearance and a peak of No. 50 on the charts.

Just as I like The Hollies version of Stop In The Name of Love better than the original, I also like Glass Moon’s version of On a Carousel better than the Hollies version.Glass Moon would break up in the mid-80s after recording three albums.
