Although “Simply Irresistible” and “Addicted to Love” are awesome songs and the corresponding videos that aired on MTV in the 80s will never go out of style, once upon a time Palmer was a critically acclaimed rock/soul/funk/R&B singer. Who knew? His debut album, Sneaking Sally Through the Alley, is so much fun, you'd never believe it came from the guy who didn't mean to turn you on. The album kicks off with this phenomenal 9 and a half minute medley, I think the first part is about cocaine:
He's got a dime/
Says he catches more fish every time/
Well I've gotta line If you've got a pole/
Well I'll meet you at the fishing hole'.
But I'm willing to admit I could be totally wrong, maybe he's just singing about fishing.
