The conversation went like this:
Curt: “Who is Billy Ocean?”
Eric: “Don’t you EVEN!”
And then I uploaded the Ultimate Collection. I was immediately taken back to my younger days by all these great hits.
I will admit that I had a hard time remembering “License to Chill” and “Red Light Spells Danger”. I suspect that these didn’t make it on Billy’s Greatest Hits album. But when it comes to the great ones, no listener will be disappointed by the biggies: “Get Out of My Dreams and Into My Car” has to be one of the best songs on the album.
I’d forgotten how good the producing was on that song. It is worth the price of admission for that single alone.
Now, I can say with confidence, “Who is Billy Ocean?” Because now I know the answer and am glad I took the time to do the research.
