"Lights Out" by Peter Wolf

Although birthday boy Peter Wolf's greatest musical success came as lead singer of the J. Geils Band, he had a solo hit in 1984 with this song, which was the title track of his first album.

Yet one of the joys of researching is what one discovers that one didn't know - in my case, a vast amount indeed. I had no idea, for instance, that Wolf was once married to Faye Dunaway (from 1974 to 1979) and I'm not sure which amazes me more - that he studied art under Norman Rockwell or is friends with Bruce Springsteen.

Anyway, I always liked this song, which is the main reason I'm posting it today. Enjoy!
