The Hooters are an American rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. By combining a mix of rock and roll, reggae, ska and folk music, The Hooters first gained major commercial success in the United States in the mid-1980s due to heavy radio and MTV airplay of several songs including "All You Zombies", "Day by Day", "And We Danced" and "Where Do the Children Go". Their popularity resulted in the band opening the Philadelphia portion of the Live Aid benefit concert in 1985. [Wikipedia] Thanks to Shahin for introducing them to me. See Poster.

I have a crappy memory in general but I never forget what songs my friends and family like. These Italian, French, and English songs, mostly from the 60s, are some of the first songs I have ever heard in my life. I think they, and other types of music from the 60s and 70s are still superior to most of the music that is being fed to people through aggressive marketing nowadays. "con le canzoni con amore, con il cuore, con piu' donne sempre meno suore."
