The "Spoons" was a 1980s Canadian New Wave Band that was lesser known in the States. I first heard about them on MTV back in those days. I listened a little bit to them and I do remember the song that I have posted below. I learned something online that is interesting about them. After they released their break through album, they had three top forty songs in Canada. They won an award for that which led to them having a higher profile. That led them to go on concerts with more known bands where they opened for "Culture Club", "Simple Minds" and "The Police". Have you heard of this group? Have you heard the song before?

Not many have heard of it, especially if you didn't listen to New Wave and you live in the States.

There's just so many unheard bands back in the 80s. It would have made a difference if there was commercialized internet then.

No, I haven't heard of them or the song, or the groups they opened with. I guess I wasn't into that kind of music or music in general in the 80s.
