‘Goodbye To You’ by Scandal – Classic Hit or Miss

It’s the People Choice for the hit or miss this week – this one came from Robin.

The song was written by band member Zack Smith. It appeared on Scandal’s 1982 Scandal EP. The song was also released as a single, and reached #65 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The video shows Scandal keyboardist Benjy King playing a rare Digital Keyboards Synergy synthesizer, which provided the main 8th note foundation of the track, and also features Late Show with David Letterman’s bandleader and sidekick Paul Shaffer playing a solo — based on Del Shannon’s “Runaway” on an Oberheim OB-Xa.

The song was also covered by Alvin and the Chipmunks in the season 3 episode “A Chip Off the Old Tooth” of the TV series Alvin and the Chipmunks.

The song was also covered in the season 5 episode “The Band Singer” of the TV series Kate & Allie.

Hit back in 1982, how about today?
