I think that The Woodentops are an extremely underrated band. There were very few indie bands in 1986 who were making music for the dancefloor, I actually can't think of any other and for that reason alone The Woodentops should be given a bit more credit, they were at the forefront of what would later be tagged indie dance.
The track posted today comes from the more experimental second album but you wouldn't think of that from You Make Me Feel, as it sounds most like the stuff from the first album but tracks like Stop This Car especially the 12" version and Tuesday/Wednesday are quite a departure from Giant and the album didn't do nearly as well. I have to admit that the album is pretty neglected in this household and I think that a couple of listens may be required.
You make me feel was the first single released from Wooden Foot Cops On The Highway in 1988 and is just the tune for this unexpected extended sunny period we are having up here.

and as a bonus also posted the b-side of the 12", the strange Late Night mix
