Song of the Day: "'Cause You're Not Mine" by Regina Richards and Red Hot

I recently wrote about my discovery of Regina Richards and Red Hot, a New York City band formed in the late 1970s led by someone who later became better-known as a one-hit wonder for her single "Baby Love." I've only become more enamored with the group's 1981 eponymous debut -- I sing along like I've had it since I was 14 -- but now I'm getting even more intrigued by the 40th anniversary bonus tracks, which were likely recorded for a sophomore album that never came to be. Today's song of the day reminds me a bit Blue Angel, Cyndi Lauper's pre-fame rockabilly-esque band that also got dropped by its label as a second album was coming about. Curious if the women knew each other and/or were influenced by each other's work. Have a listen and tell me if you hear it, too.
