The Jars - Start Right Now


On this date in 1980, The Jars released their debut single, "Start Right Now". It was backed by "Psycho" and "Electric Third Rail". The Berkeley, California powerpop/new wave band released two singles and a live album to complete their catalog. The sleeve for this single called the feature track "Start Rite Now". It was, however, correctly called "Start Right Now" on the actual label.

"I'm not looking for a fight now,
And I don't care who's wrong or right now,
So release the dove into flight now,
So we can start right now,
We can start right now"
