BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

The Romantics is an American New Wave band from Detroit, Michigan, formed in 1977. The band adopted the name “The Romantics” because they formed on Valentine’s Day, 1977. The Romantics achieved popularity in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, parts of Asia, Australia, Europe, and Latin America during the first half of the 1980s on the strength of the band’s songs and music videos. They were influenced by 1960s British Invasion rock (most notably the music of The Kinks, The Who, The Beatles, The Hollies, and The Rolling Stones).

“Talking In Your Sleep” was the first single released from The Romatics fourth studio album “In Heat” released in 1983. “Talking In Your Sleep” was The Romantics’ biggest chart hit, garnering substantial radio airplay and sales. The song reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1984. It also went to #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart in the U.S., where it remained on top for two weeks. In Australia, Talking in Your Sleep climbed to #14 on the Australian Singles Chart (Kent Music Report). The song’s music video, widely aired at the time on MTV and elsewhere, featured the band performing while surrounded by standing, but seemingly sleeping women who were dressed in lingerie, pajamas, and other sleepwear.
