It`s a very rare quality to find this in our days. Thank you to the uploader for letting me relive my childhood 🙂 Reply never heard this song until now, very good…I like it. Reply "188.8.131.52." (1978) – back to 70s, legendary decade with so many memories . Reply Saw this on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert or the Midnight Special. Can't remember. Reply If phone numbers were still that short,I'd remember them all. Reply People with the phone number 5-7-0-5 hated this song back in 1978. Reply City was such a great band… !!!! Reply I think this song was a few years ahead of its time. If it had come out in 1982, it would have been huge. Reply Big City Boy!!!! Reply AH, memories of Top Of The Pops 🙂 Reply Roy Ward. Fine drummer and singer. Reply Roy Ward what a Great Singer Reply Extremely good!
