I know this isn't really a SD question, but since we all seem to have knowledge of some obscure information, perhaps someone can help me. There was a song in the early 80's, the chorus was "Oh Nicole, My Sweet Nicole". And there was also a stanza about looking like a burnout, like you stayed up all night....I have tried to find out from other sources-but I knew I could come here and find out!

"Nicole" was by a group called Point Blank. It was their only song to make the Billboard U.S. Hot 100, peaking at #39 in the summer of 1981. The song came from their "American Exce$$" album. Info about the album, plus the song lyrics, are located at: Point Blank American Exce$$ Lyrics.

(I wonder if this was only a regional hit. Even seeing the lyrics, I have no recollection at all of this song).

Well popokis' location is California, as well as ruadh, and I grew up in New York and I certainly remember it. I would've guessed it was later in the 80's but as I get older the memory ain't what it used to be.

Actually, "Oh Nicole" I think was an earlier hit. I would say 1979 or 1980. Alledgedly the band was named after this little hick town about 70 miles N/NE of Houston, so maybe it got sooner airplay down here.

Thanks for the info. It was driving me crazy trying to remember. And 1981 would have been the right year.
