There is one thing better than to have a hit, and that is to have a hit with a memorable “feel good” hook (the Doobies’ “Listen To The Music” comes to mind). On such a hit, a group can tour forever. “Shining Star” is such a hit. “We toured for years behind that record alone,” Manhatten singer Blue Lovett said. “It’s just one of those tunes that makes you feel good.” Shining Star” was a hit (#5) in 1980.
