Into the Groovy #64 - "Ah! Leah!"
May 30, 2016 6:13pm CST
This Memorial Day edition of Into the Groovy (#64) takes us to Pennsylvania, birthplace of Donnie Iris. You might remember a song called "The Rapper" by a band called The Jaggerz. That was Donnie Iris. He also did a stint in Wild Cherry (after "Play that Funky Music.") In 1980 Iris released his solo debut, Back on the Streets. That album spawned "Ah! Leah!," a hard rocker that hit #29 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #6 in Canada. And what's more Groovy than a geeky-looking fellow rocking out? He's pretty Groovy indeed.

Love it. LOVE it. LOVE IT!!!! It played on my iPod on the way to the country music conference one day last week, so I had to flush my ears out with Hank Williams. His other hit, "Love Is Like a Rock," is great, too, but "Ah Leah" is one of the great underrated and overlooked songs of the 80s.
