"Modern Girl" by Sheena Easton

Song#:  0595
Date:  05/09/1981
Debut:  81
Peak:  18
Weeks:  18
Genre:  Pop

Pop Bits:  Easton's debut US single "Morning Train" was sitting comfortably in the #1 spot when this follow-up single hit the chart. In the UK, this song was actually her first single and it fizzled at #56. However, when "Morning Train" became a hit, this single was reissued and ended up reaching #8.

ReduxReview:  Originally I liked this song far better than "Morning Train" and bought the single. I still love it, but "Morning" ended up having a little bit of timelessness to it where this one has gotten a bit dated. Both songs were terrific first singles and they started her career off with a bang.

ReduxRating:  7/10

Trivia:  Having a #1 hit with her debut single plus this Top 20 entry helped get Easton the Grammy for Best New Artist winning over Adam & the Ants, The Go-Go's, James Ingram, and Luther Vandross.
