THE MOVE - LIGHTNIN' NEVER STRIKES TWICE


Buried as the b-side of UK hit "Brontosaurus" is this gem written by Move guitarist Rick Price and Birmingham singer Mike Tyler (aka Mike Sheridan). Unlike practically anything else in the (mostly excellent) Move catalog, this song has all the elements of a perfect single; excellent song, production and incredible hooks and harmonies.

from 1970...

Being a major Move fan, I had to have that 45 for my collection. Of course I bought it for the A side, but when I flipped it over, I was blown away that a song that good would be stuck on a b side. A band would do well to cover that one.

"Unlike practically anything else in the (mostly excellent) Move catalog," except, imho, "Do Ya," another great song that was originally a B-side!

Great tune. Excellent sound quality from this 45. Thank you!
