"Hot Child In The City" by Nick Gilder

Vancouver's own glam rock band Sweeney Todd had a big hit in 1975 with Roxy Roller; shortly thereafter that band's guitarist James McCulloch and lead singer Nick Gilder (born in London on this day in 1951) went 'solo', producing 1978's Hot Child in the City from the album City Nights, which went Number 1 around the world (including Canada and the US).

Behind the scenes, Gilder has also had a successful career as a songwriter; in addition to The Warrior, a smash for Scandal in 1984, he has also written for Patty Smyth, Bette Midler, Joe Cocker and Pat Benatar.
