Hidden Gems : The Fixx – Stand Or Fall

Continuing this very popular viewed series of Hidden Gems (tracks which should have been hits). I’ll present you a track via YouTube, Daily Motion, Soundcloud or another site. These posts are for the music only.

Continuing in from yesterday’s post on ‘The Brits That Rocked America‘ theme I thought I’d highlight a British band which actually did well in America but didn’t even scratch the UK market. The Fixx’s debut album ‘Shuttered Room‘ contained many fine songs like ‘Some People‘ which at one point MCA Records were selling it at a loss of £1.00 to the public to gain chart places. The singles from the album ‘Red Skies‘ and ‘Lost Planes‘ laid the foundations for future US hits which included the Top 5 smash ‘One Thing Leads To Another‘ (Failed to enter the UK Top 75).

Bonus: The Fixx – Red Skies (Remix)
