Great Lost Singles of the 80s: Special Pre-CIALIS® Edition

From Austin, Texas in 1987, please enjoy the Wild Seeds and their hilarious college radio hit "I'm Sorry, I Can't Rock You All Night Long."

I actually reviewed the album above at The Magazine Formerly Known as Stereo Review when it first came out, and if memory serves I loved it, especially "I'm Sorry." Nevertheless, I seem to have lost my copy, and until discerning commenter MBowen sent the mp3 my way the other day, I had totally forgotten that the song had ever existed, let alone that it was such a pitch-perfect skewering of 80s hair band machismo.
I'm sorry
So sorry
I can't rock you all night long
It's an interesting idea, baby
But it would be wrong
Lord knows, we've all known the feeling, but it's rarely been expressed so eloquently.

Is it anything like Please Don't Rock Me Tonight by that friggin' genius Adam Schlesinger?

I have the Mud Lies and Shame CD. I'd be happy to make you a copy.
