Overnight Sensation / Hit Record

Recommended Posts

"Overnight Sensation" is a song that brings the early 70's back to life for me every time i hear it...The background chant of "want a hit record yeah...number one" in the chorus...and at the end of the song...is a hook i never get tired of...It reminds me of a snippet of a radio station jingle with it's persistence...The promise of being an overnight sensation is another kind of hook...The kind of hook that could seduce a band or solo artist into a sinking sand of a record deal like Eric wrote about in his Clive Davis thread...Overnight Sensation is a pop masterpiece that still packs a wallop more than 30 years after it was recorded...When you're talking about 70's music...it doesn't get much better than this.
