Lost and found: Missing Persons' 'Surrender Your Heart'
Missing Persons' 1982 debut album Spring Session M reached gold status aided by the videos for New Wave classics like Walking in LA and Destination Unknown, which still receive plenty of airplay on ‘80s stations.
Less known are the songs off their next album Rhyme and Reason, including Surrender Your Heart. The video for Surrender Your Heart showed up on the October 1984 edition of HBO’s Video Jukebox and is noted for being one of the first computer-generated art videos featuring artist Peter Max.
For reasons unknown, Missing Persons never captured future chart success and by 1986 the band broke up as did the marriage of lead singer Dale Bozzio and drummer Terry Bozzio. Guitarist Warren Cuccurullo went on the replace Andy Taylor as guitarist for Duran Duran for 15 years.
Debate amongst yourselves who you think Lady Gaga has ripped off more: Madonna or Dale Bozzio?
