LEVEL 42 - RUNNING IN THE FAMILY (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.... This still sounds fresh and lively, even today..

U.K band "Level 42", to date, have released 11 albums in total (and i thought they were a one hit wonder band)...
'Running in the Family' made it to No 6 in the U.K music charts (No 83 in the U.S) but sadly couldn't match their previous single 'Lessons in Love' which shot to No3 (U.K) and No12 (U.S).

What made Level 42 stand out?
Apart from catchy sounding songs, it was the combination of quirky Bass guitar rhythms, snappy syth work (Yamaha DX7?) and catchy vocals (Mark King) with old fashioned lyric writing made 'Level 42' sounding polished and a pleasure to listen to.

Some debate as to where 'Level 42' got their name... Some say its taken from Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy (42 was the answer to the meaning of life) and some say its in relation to a carpark in China that has 42 levels... what do you think (join the discussion on Twitter @Electronic80s1)
