Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!

Lene Lovich : Lucky Number

On July 28, 1978 Stiff Records released the Lene Lovich debut single "I Think We're Alone Now" b/w "Lucky Number". The A side was a cover of a 1967 Tommy James and the Shondells hit. In need if a B side, Lovich knocked out "Lucky Number' in one night. Rereleased with a big splash in January of 1979, a new version of "Lucky Number" would peak at #3 in the U.K. charts and suddenly the new wave sound was no longer a men's only club.
