"What She Does to Me" by The Producers

Song#:  0632
Date:  06/13/1981
Debut:  85
Peak:  61
Weeks:  6
Genre:  Power Pop, New Wave

Pop Bits:  After becoming popular playing around their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, this group signed to Portrait Records and issued their self-titled debut album. This first single became a regional hit and it helped to propel it on the national chart where it remained for a few weeks. They issued a follow-up LP in 1982, "You Make the Heat," but no singles charted and the group was dropped from the label. A couple of more albums would follow (with one being shelved and finally released in 2001), but the group called it a day in 1991.

ReduxReview:  While not a great song, this one bops along pretty good and is an interesting listen. The mid section is a nice add and I've seen a tag of (The Diana Song) used in the title, most likely because it is different and the use of the name is prominent. I can imagine radio station callers not really knowing the name of the song and just asking to "play that Diana song."

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  Double Shot!  1) Before becoming The Producers and doing their own music, the group was originally a Beatles cover band called Cartoon.  2) A song on their third album was a collaboration with the group Kansas. The song, "Can't Cry Anymore," appeared on The Producers' "Run for Your Life" album (1985) and Kansas' "Power" album (1986).
