F - Roddy Piper's Rowdy Hearts Club Band

Look what I found on the tube! Ah, the mix-tapes of my youth ...

In this case thanks to "Duffy" who opened my ears to US punk bands.

And in case you are wondering, I _did_ watch Mr. Rowdy Roddy Piper wrestle on Cable TV in the mid-1980s before he quit his career, maybe that is why I got so attached to this song I could do an exact search on Youtube for the otherwise unfindable band "F" ...

The Dickies - Nights In White Satin

One of the great songs in rock history. Love this version by the Dickies (you may be more familiar with the Moody Blues' version).
