Remember That Song – 4/30/18

Can you name the artist and song:

Workin’ in the city
This town’s got no pity
Bossman owns a heart of stone
I’m on the line, it’s overtime
I’ll tell you it’s a crime


Last Song: “Turning Japanese” by The Vapors from New Clear Days (1980)

Great job David and Brent (@jonbrent13)!!!

Everyone around me is a total stranger
Everyone avoids me like a cyclone ranger
