Goody Two Shoes 45 by Adam Ant

April 30, 2011

Adam Ant (born Stuart Goddard) was the leader of the glam/punk rock group Adam And The Ants, which formed during 1976. Ant lost three members of the band to Bow Wow Wow in 1980, but carried on until 1982 when he went solo.

He would place three singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart, 1982-1984 before making a comeback in the 1990’s with two more. He also acted in a number of movies and televison episodes.

“Goody Two Shoes” was released November 13, 1982 and would become the biggest hit of his career reaching number 12 on the American singles charts.

The use of drums with a guitar sound in between was a great way to introduce this strong rocker. I was not a huge Adam Ant fan but this one was a keeper as it had a smoothness that much of his material lacked.
