#AtoZ 1981 Songs to Remember – “N” is for “(The) Night Owls”

I chose 1981 music as my theme this year. My newest novel The Summer of Princess Diana is set in the summer of 1981, and oh! the music! Let’s take a look back at a pivotal time in the music industry.

Little River Band was an Australian group originally formed in 1975. Probably best known in the US for their hit “Reminiscing” (1978), this song, “The Night Owls,” was released in September 1981 as the lead single from their album Time Exposure.

Little River Band is considered to be one of Australia’s most significant bands. As of 2004 they had sold more than 30 million records and had 13 US Top 40 hits.

  1. The band sounds familiar, not the song though.
    A local radio station plays music from the 1980s and 1990s all Easter Weekend long, who knows, maybe it’s on their playlist?

  3. Sold 30 million!??!! You can understand why the music industry lost their minds when Bands started “self-publishing” with CD’s and My Space, and digital downloads! Wait, are we talking about the Music Industry??? Hahahahahahah!

      1. I did love that movie! Of course, your list this month has reminded me of all the music that has not “made it” due to the age old music industry. Great Month M!!

  4. Ah, I loved “Reminiscing.” I have a special fondness for it as my brother-in-law, who has a lovely voice and played flute, too, sang this with his band, Hot Saki. Back in the day.
    I have absolutely NO recollection of “The Night Owl!”
