Red Rider - Lunatic Fringe

Another perfect song by Tom Cochrane and the Red Rider boys, from the album "As Far As Siam" from 1981. This is also probally, one the greatest songs of all time along with "White Hot".

Hip Hop killed the radio star. We will never be blessed with artist like this again. We are witness the the dumbing down of America. don the con is a perfect example.
Aaron Hadley
Been one of my favorite songs since my freshman year of high school. Some songs come and go but some stay on your play list forever and this is it.
Andrew Friedl
Timeless. You can play this tune any day any time and people will relate.

This election has brought out the Lunatic fringe from both sides.
Austin Hanks
god i wish music was still like this today

I was the Capitol Rep in the USA that got the ball started on this...Seriously.

Robert Mueller's theme song🤟

To bad the rest of the album sucked, a true one hit wonder, was very disappointed when I bought the album. Nothing else on it sounds anything like this masterpiece.
Cameron Stell
Who ever is a part of the 1K that didn't like this is just not right in the head.
Carl Moore
1967 Pontiac Firebird and this song = running from the cops
Carlos Chavez
Still better than the sh#t they play today especially for the new generation snowflakes

How this song never made the Top 40 is beyond me... Especially with the crap that makes it nowadays!
Chris Hull
I que up this song before I go on a ride put in the ear buds and crank it up and and head down the highway

Dave Schwartz
A great song in the 80's we used to drink to. Nothing like an old fashioned Friday night cruising the streets and jamming to the best music around
David Galloway
It perfectly describes the time in which we live in in which extremist groups are given the credibility that they do not deserve.
David Reid
Did Dan Henderson bring you here??
David Salt
The year of 1981 is very over looked in rock history. They played this all the time on the radio then. Now it seems forgotten. There were a lot of bands like this too.
Donna Franklin
Damn .. Miami Vice anybody?
DustyRusty81
I thought this was a new PinkFloyd song back in 81 when this song came out

..........A TIMELESS CLASSIC.........!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a great one-of-a-kind rock song but it always given me a little bit of a panic attack.

Jamie Anthony
I grew up listening to this
Jason Cameron
Perfect song to go down a road in the summer of a hot town.. Road trip
Jessica Eaton
I remember this from the album when it came out but it got a second wind when used in the movie Vision Quest....kinda of a Rocky-Type film about wrestling in the mid 80s. Cool jam.

This is the one song that I consider my all time favorite. When I was going through my recent bout with cancer, this was my rally song, Now that I am clean of cancer, will enjoy this song. Especially since it was an inspiration during the most recent difficult time, Remember, I hear \
Mark Raker
The kind of song that you turn up after doing seven days of meth, that's why they call it tweaking. Seven days.....
Mason Albert
Any of the one hit wonder breakout masterpieces like this by Red Rider would STILL top the charts if new today. So long has this world been under spell of Trump'sEnvy of John Lennon. He has made it his goal to seek destruction of ANYONE more beloved, respected, or admired than himself. Newsflash: ALL EDUCATED HUMANS free of bigotry will ALWAYS be superior to Private BoneSpurts.\nALWAYS.
Matty Geez
This Song is one of those songs you put on before you kick someone's ass, literally..

This song was actually sampled in Kurt Angle's TNA theme song created by John Cena's cousin Tha Trademark, and, of course, is the nickname of Dean Ambrose. I'm diggin' this beat.
Nuclear Blues
I don't understand how you people can think this sounds like Pink Floyd. The singer sounds nothing like David Gilmour or Roger Waters. The whole song has a different feel from anything Floyd, too. He's playing a Strat, or at least a guitar that sounds like a Strat, but that's the only connection I can make.

Lunatic fringe\r\nIn the twilight's last gleaming\r\nBut this is open season\r\nBut you won't get too far\r\n'Cause you've got to blame someone\r\nFor your own confusion\r\nWe're on guard this time (on guard this time)\r\nAgainst your final solution

Boston radio station WAAF played this song during the 1990s and the DJ NEVER said who the band was. I spent two and a half decades looking for this song until the other day, when it miraculously started playing on the radio. I asked ‘Siri’ who sang this song, and my two and a half decade search was finally over. Thank you 21st Century technology! You were more reliable than some fat, balding Boston radio personality!
Z Arostegui
great song, definitely a masterpiece

i always thought this was pink floyd.crazy

Even after 35 years this leadbreak still reminds me of Pink Floyd, which is never a bad thing. Cool jams. Thanks for posting.

Awesome
theKrocker225
Great to crank on a Friday night cruising through the city in a Crown Vic. This is so much better than the music being released today except Greta Van Fleet. This is coming from a 17 year old
thorinbane
I hear this and for some reason I think Smugglers Blues and Miami Vice. \nGreat song.
tikiduck
Damn, being a young man during this time, there was so much good music coming out we didn't know which way to turn. The shit they throw up these days is an insult.
