Asia - Heat Of The Moment

The supergroup Asia (Steve Howe, Geoff Downes, John Wetton and Carl Palmer originally) formed in 1981 and went right for the jugular of the radio format that was then called AOR (Adult Oriented Rock) and today rather is referred to as Classic Rock. They didn't mind their backgrounds from progressive rock bands Yes, ELP and King Crimson and may have disappointed fans of those bands, but with their melodic rock they gained more than enough new fans to make it worthwhile. Truthfully, Asia is extremely far from being the best band in the world, but I love "Heat Of The Moment", their very first single and biggest hit, lifted from their self-titled 1982 album. It's good fun, with an awful video.

Watch and listen
