Greg Guidry: Goin' Down

While its different musically, the beginning of Greg Guidry’s one hit wonder “Goin’ Down” with the electric piano and bass reminds me of The Alan Parsons Project’s “Wouldn’t Want to Be Like You.” That is where the similarities end, as it is a fairly typical pop song. I like the limited use of the vibra-slap in the intro.

This 1982 hit charted at #17 and came from his album “Over the Line.” Guidry had an untimely end – his charred body was found in his car in his garage. His death was determined to be a suicide.
