Musical Interlude: Back To Paradise (1987)

Summer ended nearly 2 months ago, and Spring Break is some 4 months away. To tie you over until March, we present a little sampling of Spring Break, Nerd style.

In 1987, 38 Special recorded "Back To Paradise" for the movie, "Revenge of the Nerds 2: Nerds in Paradise", and included the track on their CD, "Flashback". I can tell you that I wore out the vinyl single I had, I loved this song so much. After roof raising rockers like "Back To Paradise", "Caught Up In You", & "WIld Eyed Southern Boys", 38 Special dialed it down and crossed over to the Adult Contemporary charts a couple of years later with "Second Chance". Go figure.

"Back To Paradise" was uploaded by David Puls to YouTube:
