Friday Video #61: Pretty Poison

It was twenty years ago this month that "Catch Me (I'm Falling)" by the Philly band Pretty Poison peaked at #8 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. The single was originally released on the band's own label Svengali Records back in April 1987 and it wound being a hit on the local radio stations like Power 99 and Hot Hits 98 that summer. Virgin Records took notice and signed theact and then re-released the single that fall. It would also go to #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart.

Here is a clip of Pretty Poison performing the track on the USA Network TV show Dance Party USA. It originated from Philadelphia, based on a local program on WWPHL-TV called Dancin' On Air.
