Nick Heyward : My All Time Top 10

   In December of 1981, Haircut One Hundred frontman Nick Heyward gave Smash Hits a fairly poppy list of his Top 10 fave songs ( which included the entire Talking Heads debut album). What's striking is that the UK#3/US Top 40 hit"Love Plus One" combines the ear worm catchiness of The Sixties best pop, with the quirkiness of early Talking Heads and the addition of vibes a la Gary Burton. ( Although, come to think of it, the Heads used vibes on "First Week/Last Week...Carefree") .  This list comes via Brian at Like Punk Never Happened. His hair is immaculate.
