GREATEST HITS
What I Like About You (And Other Romantic Hits)   The Romantics Super Hits

The Romantics were a new wave punk band from Detroit.  They called themselves The Romantics due to the fact that they formed on Valentines Day in 1977.  After doing time on the club circuit in and around Detroit, the band eventually landed a record deal and released several singles in the late 1970's, all of which ended up on their self-titled debut in 1980.  Many of you will remember the hit song "What I Like About You" from this album.

The Romantics were on a role.  Their crowning achievement was their 1983 release,  In Heat, which featured the hit songs "Talking in Your Sleep" and "One in a Million".  MTV made the band even more popular by airing their videos on a regular basis.  The band's 1985 release, Rhythm Romance, did not produce any significant hits, and it would be their last release of the 1980's due to legal issues with the band's former management.

After the lawsuit finally settled in the mid 1990's, The Romantics returned to the spotlight, somewhat, with new material.  In the 2010's, the band was still known to be active on the tour circuit, and new material was being rumored.  The Romantics Discography is as follows:

  • 1979: Tell it to Carrie/Runnin' Away//First in Line/Let's Swing
  • 1980: The Romantics
  • 1980: National Breakout
  • 1981: Strictly Personal
  • 1983: In Heat
  • 1985: Rhythm Romance
  • 1993: Made in Detroit
  • 1996: The King Biscuit Flour Hour Presents: The Romantics Live in Concert
  • 2003: 61/49
  • 1980  Self-Titled Debut

    TALKING IN YOUR SLEEP:
    [chorus] You tell me that you want me, You tell me that you need me, You tell me that you love me, And I know that I'm right, Cuz I hear it in the night, I hear the secrets that you keep, When you're talking in your sleep [etc]
