#41. "It Doesn’t Really Matter" - Platinum Blonde (1983)

Are you sitting comfortably? Then let's begin.

Let's begin with Platinum Blonde's first single "It Doesn’t Really Matter", which is also their best.

That classic guitar riff, the iconic bridge, the drum solo...and some of best caterwauling this side of "Sweet Child 'O Mine".

Canada's answer to Duran Duran, Platinum Blonde enjoyed much success at home with a slew of catchy singles during the mid-80s. 

It doesn't really matter that the band didn't last for too long. Much like the UK's The Smiths and Frankie Goes to Hollywood, the Blondes packed in a lot of good stuff in 4-5 years. One of my other faves is "Situation Critical" from the 1985 album Alien Shores.

  1. Canada's answer to Duran Duran, that sounds familiar. I saw them in concert three times.
