I used to listen and tape Casey Kasem's American Top 40 countdown on DWRT during my grade school years. I recall one time - just as New Wave was exploding through the stratosphere and the airwaves -- a song title "New Romance" debuted at Top 38 on the charts. It was by this band called "Spider". The next week, they fell off the Top 40. For years I'd look for the record or the compact disc but never found it until lately and in a used record bin. Spider most prominently featured Holly Knight (the pretty lady on the left) who became a popular songwriter and Anton Fig who became more known as the drummer for David Letterman's show band. Playing "New Romance" brought a smile to my face. I sat down, had some ice cream, and patted my dog who sat right next to me licking the ice cream on my fingers.
Holly Knight wrote songs for Pat Benatar (Love is A Battlefield and Invincible), Animotion (Obsession), Heart (Never), Patty Smyth and Scandal (The Warrior), and a whole lot of other songs sang by Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, and Ozzy Osbourne!
