Has anybody here heard of the 80s group Face To Face? They were this great band that was sort of a combination dance/rock group. My favorite song by them is "Under The Gun", mainly because of this rap:

"Shot for shot,
Search for escape,
From the city of fire,
And the cries of rape,
You got red lights flashing in the zone,
When boy meets girl two hearts atone,
Blind man walking with his cane,
You've got a lady with a bag,
She got no name,
Burned-out buildings, burned-out lives,
When burned-out hearts just can't survive,
It looks just like Sodom And Gomorrah,
The rulers are evil,
The days are getting shorter,
There's talk of Armageddon,
Never heard the call,
You took no time to read the writing on the wall,
On the 7th day, the 7th time around,
Like the walls of Jericho,
It's all coming down,
It's all coming down,
It's all coming down,
Like the walls of Jericho, it's all coming down,
The party is over,
The world's on the run,
We're all living under the gun."

Pretty cool rap, huh?

Sincerely,

John Kilduff

For years I thought that 90's pop-punk band Face to Face was the only group with that moniker, but I think I have the 80's group on a compilation of sorts. Is their other stuff good?

I know of only one other song by them, entitled "10-9-8". That was a good song also. The extended mix is recommended as well.
