"Let Me Be" by Korona

Song#:  0100
Date:  03/22/1980
Debut:  72
Peak: 43
Weeks:  8
Genre:  Pop

Pop Bits:  Korona is a studio band brought together by Bruce Blackman, who previously headed up the band Starbuck ("Moonlight Feels Right," #3, 1976). After Starbuck broke up, Blackman developed Korona and recorded a self-titled debut album. This first single almost hit the Top 40 but it seems like it wasn't enough to keep the project supported and it appears like it was one album and out for Korona.

ReduxReview:  Am I hearing this right? "Everybody's little sugar daddy got to love you?" Oh dear, no. This is so far from anything I like. And this was almost Top 40? Now, I loves me some "Moonlight Feels Right," but I could barely get through this thing twice.

ReduxRating:  2/10

Trivia:  This was the third group for Blackman to have a song on the chart. Prior to forming Starbuck, Blackburn was also part of the band Eternity's Children. That group hit the chart in 1969 with "Mrs. Bluebird" (#68).
