Wonderful One-Hit Wonders: “Just Got Lucky” by JoBoxers

This song from JoBoxers is one of the seemingly endless stream of New Wave singles that came out of England in the ‘80s and found a temporary home on MTV, pretty much their only exposure to American audiences.

This is a sunny, bouncy love song with a great refrain, the kind of song (If I may skew old and cranky for a moment) that they just don’t make anymore. The English have always been very good at being influenced by sounds from other places like American R&B and you can hear the flavoring this genre has in this track’s beat and vocals.
