The Producers - "What She Does to Me"

(Not Available on iTunes)

(Debuted June 13, 1981, Peaked #61, 6 Weeks on the Chart)

The Producers were an Atlanta-based band that started out as a Beatles cover band called Cartoon. They soon changed direction and espoused a power-pop style that was really suited for the 1980s but really couldn't break out on a larger scale. Despite one Billboard Hot 100 single and some MTV success, the band was unceremoniously dropped by Portrait Records after two LPs. They split up in the early 1990s, but still get together from time to time to play a show.

The bridge of the song mentions a lady named Diana. Since 1981 was the same year that Lady Diana Spencer married Prince Charles and instantly became a worldwide celebrity, the timing was perfect on this song. Although I'm certain that Diana wasn't the same person, the association definitely didn't hurt.
