This near-miss for Santana in '85 is worth listening to again



How many times do we have to say it again on Stuck In the '80s? We love Rock Dinos. As we get older and more forgetful, forgive us for repeating ourselves but  when Santana is involved its fine to Say It Again.  

Say It Again nearly hit the Top 40 peaking at No. 46 in 1985 and in Carlos Santana's arsenal of lead singers, the vocals on Say It Again fell to the soulful Greg Walker. Of Santana's 15 Top 40 songs, Walker would sing lead on two of them as he made his mark with Stormy and She's Not  There - both of which charted in the '70s and were remakes of '60s songs.

The video for Say It Again is the oft familiar "behind the scenes" video with Carlos Santana presiding over the shoot in his home turf of San Francisco. At 69 years of age, Santana isn't close to retiring as this past spring he released his 23rd album, Santana IV. The album is called "IV" since it is the first album since 1971's Santana III to include original classic lineup including Journey members Neal Schon and Greg Rollie.
