GREATEST HITS
The Best of the Power Station

The Power Station was a short-lived super group that consisted of Robert Palmer, Tony Thompson, and Duran Duran member John and Andy Taylor.  The idea was hatched after Palmer was invited to participate in a charity concert with Duran Duran in 1983, and later to participate on a purposefully short-lived project for a band called Big Brother.  It was during a Duran Duran hiatus that the plans came to fruition, and the bands Arcadia and The Power Station were Duran Duran spin-offs.

The Power Station, with Palmer on vocals, performed the hit tunes "Some Like It Hot" and "Get It On (Bang A Gong)" on Saturday Night Live in 1985.  Shortly after, they released their self-title album in 1985.  "Communication" was another top 40 hit from this album.  The entire project was short-lived.  Palmer decided to work on a solo album, and his album, Riptide, was released in 1985 (with the help of the boys from Power Station).

Other than some movie soundtrack contributions, that was it for the band until the mid 1990's, when all original members, including Palmer, reunited for a new album.  In 2003, Palmer and Thompson passed away in 2003.  The Power Station Discography is as follows:

  • 1985: Power Station
  • 1996: Living in Fear
  • 2003: Best Of
  • 2005: The Power Station: 20th Anniversary Edition

    SOME LIKE IT HOT:
      [chorus] Feel the heat pushing you to decide, Feel the heat burning you up, ready or not Some like it hot and some sweat when the heat is on, Some feel the heat . . . so let's turn up the heat 'til we fry [etc]
