That 'other' song by The Romantics



The Romantics are known best for two ‘80s songs. Talking In Your Sleep reached No. 3 on the charts in 1983 and What I Like About You, one of the most overplayed songs on radio, movies and commercials, but strangely only peaked at No. 49 in 1980.

Here at Lost and Found, we love One In A Million, which reached No. 37 on the charts in early 1984 as the third single off the excellent In Heat album. One In A Million has all the classic ‘80s video components: beautiful babes, big hair and ice cream scoopers.

The title One in a Million always reminds me of the '80's Steven Wright joke, “China has a population of a billion people. That means even if you're a one-in-a-million kind of guy, there are still thousand others just like you."

The Detroit band is still together after all these years, although they just play selected venues on a limited basis.
