Everybody has those inexplicable how-the-hell-did-I-miss-this pop culture gaps. Graham Parker is one of mine. Based on everything else I’m into, his music should have been an undeniable can’t miss. I mean, he sounds like Costello, Nick Lowe, or even early Joe Jackson to my ear. What’s not to love? But besides this one song, which I’ve heard less than 10 times in 50 years, I can’t name anything else by him.
But this one song is pretty great.
