Red Light Spells Danger

Billy Ocean had lots of hits worldwide in the 1970s and 80s. I'll be posting one of his 80s hits soon. His debut single Love Really Hurts Without you was a number 2 UK hit in 1976. That's a great pop song but one of his all time brilliant songs is also from his debut album and it's Red Light. It's sometimes called Red Light Spells Danger. Billy Ocean is now 60 years old and tours constantly, he has been in Dublin twice in the past two years and I'm definitely going to see him the next time he plays here. I think Red Light is one of those really powerful songs from the 70s that combines the best elements of soul and disco.
