The Producers - She Sheila

The Producers started as a Beatles cover band, but soon began performing original material and ended up as an early (if brief) MTV success story.  Their 1982 album You Make the Heat yielded this Top 50 hit, and the video went into heavy rotation on my favorite video music channel.  The band was even one of the headliners of the 82/83 MTV New Year's Eve concert.  Sadly, their label dropped them soon afterwards, although they still occasionally perform to this day.  By the way, there is another Producers video on ERV that is worth checking out, just above -- "What's He Got."

The Producers also deserve a special shout out for their supremely cool keyboard player, Wayne Famous.
