FLIRTS (Buy CDs by this artist)
10¢ a Dance (O/Vanguard) 1982
Born to Flirt (Ger. Ariola) 1983 (Hot Productions) 1994

The three young ladies who sing on this New York girl-group concoction (one of 1982's better bandwagons) are merely mouthpieces for Bobby Orlando, who wrote, played and produced 10¢ a Dance, which was released on his own O Records label. Mostly routine pop-rock dance music with dumb lyrics, the album does have one song to recommend it: "Jukebox," a catchy example of a fine tune given bouncy zest by the gum-chewing voices.
