Song of the Day, September 23: Lady by Little River Band

LRBLadyToday’s song is a 70s pop radio classic. By their fourth album, Sleeper Catcher, Little River Band had found their groove. They smoothed out their rock side a bit, settling into a solid pop sound that helped them become a million-selling arena band. The album’s finest moment was also a commercial smash. Lady was written by Graham Goble, author of a number of the band’s hits. It’s a joyous anthem to new romance, setting up a meeting on the dancefloor and giving hope that it will lead to much more. The group are a tight, splendid unit backing the sparkling vocal with confidence and grace. The result was their second US Top 10 hit and became a staple of classic rock radio.

Enjoy this wonderful song today.
