Listen to HIM by Rupert Holmes.

Unjustly overshadowed by the insipid Pina Colada song, Rupert Holmes's Him is an awesome piece of late 70s-ness. Those roller rink strings, the neutered Rhodes, the Bee Gees bass, it's all there.

Listening to it now, it's great. But how good must it have sounded on FM radio in the Buick on the way to get in line to see The Empire Strikes Back at the twin, eh?
