Love Plus One by Haircut 100

Album: Pelican WestReleased: 1982Charted:

  • Haircut 100 was a British New Wave band fronted by Nick Heyward. Pelican West was their debut album, and achieved instant success in their native Great Britain, where this was one of 4 Top-10 hits. In America, this was their only song that caught on, aided by an intriguing video that got a lot of airplay on MTV at a time when the network had very few videos to choose from. The group appeared poised for stardom, but Heyward left in 1983 to pursue a solo career. The group continued to be popular back home, but broke up the following year. They briefly reunited to perform for fans in 2004. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)

On June 26th 1982, Haircut 100 performed "Love Plus One" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
One month earlier on May 6th, 1982 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #89; and on August 1st it peaked at #37 (for 1 week) and spent 17 weeks on the Top 100...
On the day of the sextet's appearance on 'Bandstand' the song was at #49 on the Top 100...
This was their only record to make the Top 100 in the U.S.A.; but in their native England they had four Top 10 records between 1981 and 1982.

I love this song! It's super catchy, I love Nick's song writing! I just love Nick in general, seriously, how adorable was he??! He's still really good looking nowadays, too! The whole "Pelican West" album is amazing! <3Kayla - Winnipeg, Mb
Where does it go from here, indeed.... This song is crazy catchy. The sax is irresistable. The vocals draw you in. That voice-in-a-can that pops up before the refrain is one of those things you wait for when the song comes on. ...But honestly -- what in the world were these lads trying to communicate here? Down to the lake I fear? Nick, baby -- give us a noun or something to work with.Dirk - Nashville, Tn
I have always loved this song. Takes me back when you could turn on MTV and it be playing. i wish I could see the lyrics and continue to reminese.Alma - Laredo, Tx
