Something in your eyes gives me a wild idea

From the 1978 Stiff Records album Stateless, the born-in-America but UK-resident Lene Lovich had her first hit with this track, the commendably hooky 1979 new wave single Lucky Number. It reached number 3 in the UK charts in February 1979, and Lovich went on to have two further top 40 UK singles that year: Say When (number 19 in May) and Bird Song (number 39 in October).
