Listen: Truth Or Dare / Shirley Murdock ShirleyMurdock.mp3
Nothing like the sight and sound of Shirley Murdock making her way down the hallway at Elektra to visit Bob Krasnow – kitted out in high, high heels and tight, tight dress. She brought it to a whole new level. About twenty minutes after said sighting, my phone rang – Bob wanted me in his office. I couldn’t believe Bob had remembered my infatuation with her. By this time, they’d been joined by her producer, Roger Troutman, famous for his WB/Reprise band Zapp and his own solo hit, ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’. I was in heaven and Kras with that big smile on his face.
Her debut single ‘Truth Or Dare’ didn’t get the props it deserved, and admittedly the 80′s production dated fast, with a revival yet to be planned. But man, what a track.
