Romeo Void: A Girl In Trouble (Is a Temporary Thing)

It was a colossal hit on MTV; however, Romeo Void’s “A Girl in Trouble (Is a Temporary Thing) did not score too high on the Top 40 charts only peaking at 35. This 1984 single was Romeo Void’s one-hit wonder. This San Francisco band featured Debora Iyall on lead vocals. Ms. Iyall is a member of the Cowlitz Native American tribe. The great saxophone work was provided by Benjamin Bossi.

I swear this song also has a melodica in the mix – it might just be an electronic keyboard sound, but it shows up in the chorus. The production is fantastic on this one and the stereo mix sounds great in headphones. Too bad this wasn’t a bigger hit. Love it.
