I rocked down to Electric Avenue

A year ago, I strolled down ELECTRIC AVENUE, the market lane in south London's BRIXTON.
I decided to commemorate the event by listening to some tunes by the British singer who popularized Electric Avenue, EDDY GRANT.

Only a trio of Grant's solo singles broke into the Top 100 in America -- the aforementioned "Electric Avenue," as well as "I Don't Wanna Dance" and "Romancing the Stone."

Grant scored many more hits in Britain, including classics such as "Living on the Front Line," "Do You Feel My Love" and the anti-apartheid anthem "Gimme Hope Jo'anna."

It's fun listening to his "sunny" music on a cold day.
