Musical Interlude: Stand By (1983)

Before Brian Setzer traded the rockabilly sound of the Stray Cats for big band and swing with his self-titled orchestra, England's Roman Holliday mixed old school swing with modern pop. However, despite the fact that their only American single, "Stand By", gained a fair amount of airplay on MTV, it didn't translate at the cash registers. "Stand By" peaked at #54 on the pop charts.
