"She's Tight" by Cheap Trick

Song#:  1207
Date:  10/09/1982
Debut:  81
Peak:  65
Weeks:  7
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  Cheap Trick's LP "One on One" had a lackluster start thanks to the #45 peak of its first single "If You Want My Love." This second single didn't do much better and peaked twenty spots lower. The lack of single support didn't hinder sales of the album too much as it was another gold-seller for the band.

ReduxReview:  The beginning of this song sounds like a lost ELO rave-up. That's about as far as that comparison goes though. This isn't too bad of a rock tune, but I think the album had some better choices for single contention. Still, there was nothing on the LP that would make it a major hit. They've done better.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  Cheap Trick's drummer Bun E. Carlos later participated in a side project called Tinted Windows. The band was sort of a supergroup that consisted of Carlos, Taylor Hanson (Hanson brothers), James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins) and Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne). Their self-titled debut came out in 2009 and reached #59 on the album chart.
