More Than Just The Two Of Us by Sneaker on Grooveshark

Pop Bits:  This West Coast band had been around for a few years before finally signing to Handshake Records and issuing their self-titled debut in 1981. This first single from the album made it into the Top 40 and has since become kind of a popular "lost" track from the 80s.

ReduxReview:  The song starts out like an Air Supply song but it doesn't get as epic as some of their hits. I like the song and it's been on a couple 80s comps I've bought. It's a nice piece of West Coast pop and probably should have done a bit better on the chart.

ReduxRating:  7/10

Trivia:  In addition to other artists, the group cites Steely Dan as being an influence. The group's name is a reflection of that influence as it was taken from the title of the Steely Dan song "Bad Sneakers." That track appears on their 1975 LP "Katy Lied." It was issued as a single, but failed to reach the chart.
