Where did Strike get that amazing piano riff? – Feelgood Saturday 8th October

I played two songs this morning that were Acceptable in the 80s – UK top 40 hit singles that you probably haven’t heard in a while. My clues to the first were that this 1986 one hit wonder contains the lyrics: “If I gave you my soul – For a piece of your mind – Would you carry me with you – To the far edge of time?”, and that the band might have named themselves Jenny Wren; the second song was a hit in 1985 for a jazz funk band who had a string of hits throughout the 80s and into the 90s, with the clue that the song contains a piano riff that was sampled in the 90s by Strike on their song I have peace.*
