Bob’s Rate-a-Record (10 9 8 by Face to Face)

Face to Face was a New Wave quintet from Boston, Massachusetts.

They recently started playing this song at work. So, I thought I’d rate it. I vaguely remember it from the 80s. I think I like it better now than I did then. It’s kind of catchy. Face to Face is supposed to be a new wave band. At least that’s what the internet says. It doesn’t sound new wave to me at all.

On a scale from 35 to 98, I’d give this song a 75. The tempo is just a tad bit too slow, making it almost undanceable. Also, they forgot all about the number 7 in the song.
