Daddy Warbucks - try this on Youtube and download it using Torch browser - it will strip the audio out - let it down the MP4 video and then it will download the audio as aac.

Background
Look close at the center figure behind the door. That's right, a very young Demi Moore, wife at the time of the sporting dude to the left - Freddy Moore, leader of Los Angeles based power pop band Boy. If you never heard of Boy, don't feel bad. Their run was brief and in fact L.A. was a long way from Freddy's hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota and his previos band - Skogie. The band were an anomaly in the Twin Cities, dressed in three piece Pezband-ish suits and releasing a terrific pop single in 1973 on the local Mill City label - 'The Butler Did It'/I Won't Be Pushed Away'. A year later Skogie put out an LP which is best forgotten, but Moore had his sights on California and the band moved west at a time when power pop was just becoming in vogue thanks to Greg Shaw and Bomp! Records. For some reason, Skogie never quite clicked with L.A. audiences, but Freddy stayed behind forming a number of outfits, including The Nu Kats who put out a 1980 EP on Rhino before settling on Boy as well as a minor acting career with an appearance with wife Demi in the 1982 B-movie blockbuster that never was - 'Parasite'.


The Songs
The 'Parasite' soundtrack was a typically orchestral affair from composer Richard Band, but conveniently Boy landed one song on the album, the rather average 'Show A Little Emotion' which sad to say sums up my opinion on this four song EP released on the little-known Radioactive label. Moore's bratty vocals are close to that of Rick Derringer and the cover of 'Tears Of A Clown' while unnecessary is somewhat interesting, but the paranoid and oh-so new wave 'Money Speaks Japanese' doesn't have the hooks. Written at a time when American's felt it was taken over by big Japanese companies, it's all a very dated and dull listen. Quickly flipping over to side two and 'Lost My TV Guide' is a notch better, mildly quirky with pompy keys reminding me of the first Steel Breeze album. Closing and none to soon; 'Too Good to Be True' turns out to be a plodding ballad with no redeeming features whatsoever, making 'Next Door' a very nonessential listen.
