Born on this day in 1956, in Birmingham, England, musician, Dave Wakeling, of The Beat and General Public fame. Cheers, Dave!
Tenderness was General Public‘s second single from the Lp, All The Rage. It appeared in a trio of classic 1980’s teen films, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Weird Science and Sixteen Candles.
Here at Pop-A-Looza HQ, General Public‘s “Tenderness” is one of our favorite tunes from the decade of excess. Featuring Dave Wakeling and Ranking Roger of The English Beat, General Public had a really great, positive sound. Enjoy!
