This is a great one hit wonder from the '80s. Too bad. Mr. Sexton deserved more hits than this 1 gem. I'd like to point out a mistake in the 2nd songfact. It was the April 5, 1986 chart (not May 4) that Mr. Sexton had all those 17s lined up (& he was 17 years old to boot).

A decent song, but IMPRESSED is the gem track of this album.
