3AM Eternal: The Motels “Suddenly Last Summer” (1983)


I’ve always been amazed by The Motels‘ two big hits, 1982’s “Only The Lonely” and this track from 1983’s album Little Robbers. They’re very powerful, emotion-evoking songs that lyrically are quite simple and repetitive. It’s not so much in what leader Martha Davis has to say, but it’s the way that she says it. it’s hard to avoid the songs on the radio, because they’re powerful and vivid numbers.
