Tim Scott - Swear


In that magical year of 1983, Sire Records released an EP by a young man by the name of Tim Scott. The title song was later covered (And BADLY, I Might add...)by Sheena Easton. But Tim's version had just the right amount of creepiness and camp to it. The rest of this 5 song EP doesn't hold a candle to Swear, but it's not terrible either......
FUN FACT: The Go-Go's Jane Wiedlin sings background vocals on "Swear"


On Tim Scott's own website he states the following:
"This was my young and confused record...I wrote the songs over a couple of weeks on a little Casio keyboard...Sire heard it and offered me a deal...no use apologizing for such a thing...my mistake... the good part of it was working with Richard Gottehrer ...really took me under his wing...shame we were working on the wrong kind of music....."

as opposed to the successful music he makes now right? What an A-hole! - just because you accidently hit with a one hit new wave wonder doesn't mean you can crap on the whole genre.

You're beautiful, man! I just found your blog today looking for Nowhere Girl by B-Movie, and then I found this song. I've been looking for this for years.

Crushed - just found this blog post and the zshare links are dead. Trying to avoid ripping my vinyl copy... boohoo.
