"Man on Your Mind" by Little River Band

Song#:  0980
Date:  04/03/1982
Debut:  69
Peak:  14
Weeks:  16
Genre:  Soft Rock

Pop Bits:  After a pair of Top 10's from their "Time Exposure" LP, the band goes for a third hit with this single. It came close to duplicating the previous successes, but ended up petering out just shy. The song was co-written and sung by one of the group's founders, Glenn Shorrock. He would leave the band after this album but end up rejoining in 1987.

ReduxReview:  After two great singles, "The Night Owls" and "Take It Easy on Me," the band comes out with another solid track. I don't like it as much as the other two songs, but it's still a quality tune that stands right alongside their other hits.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  Some members of the band were previously in a group called Mississippi. They released a self-titled album in Australia that featured a #7 hit called "Kings of the World." They broke up in 1974 after a tour of the UK, but upon their return to Australia they reformed with a new lineup and eventually changed their name to Little River Band.
