3605. Roman Holliday - Don't Try to Stop It

From: Cookin' on the Roof; Year: 1983; Genre: New Wave/Rockabilly
Whilst working on the yard yesterday I had this song pop into my mind and continue to stay there. I have not heard it for over 30 years or thereabouts, so I don't know where it came from; but I'll take it as a sign I should pick it.
I had to do a search to find the band that did it, but they sound, at least in this song, like a new wave Stray Cats to my ears. Apparently Roman Holliday only had a couple of hits with this being the big one.

Hear Don't Try to Stop It on YouTube.
