geht so
***
Erster Hit für die Boomtown Rats im Jahre 1977. Im Gegensatz zu ihren nachfolgenden Hits, ist das punkig angehauchte, etwas holprige "Looking After No. 1" nichts besonderes.<br>

*****
Fetzige Nummer mit Punk-Elementen. Aufgerundete 5.<br>1. Hit-Single in England, #11 im August 1977.
****
Ja, eher schwach, weder richtig Punk, noch Pop - am ehesten noch Rock'n'Roll.
****
Good
***
klingt nach Garage..
****
passable, leicht behäbig wirkende Punkrockscheibe aus 1977 - 3.5 (knapp aufgerundet auf 4*)...
**
nichts für mich<br>
**
Da gab's damals viel, viel besseres aus der Richtung.
**
schwach
****
Ok
****
Ist noch ganz okay.
****
... aber nur knapp, 4 - ...
****
Pete Townshend sucht nach den Ursprüngen des Chanel No. 5- Parfüms - die legendäre No. 1, mit der alles angefangen hat. Damit lässt es sich auch bestimmt viel besser rocken...
****
Die Ziele wurden hier zu hoch gesteckt, erst zwei Jahre später mit dem Montags-Song war es soweit.
***
Sorry, für mich leider keine No. 1!
***
Jaja, die erste Single und gleich so hohe Ansprüche! Aber sie schafften es ja sogar fast, zumindest in Irland erreichten sie die #2 in den Charts! Mir gefällt die Nummer allerdings garnicht!
****
<br>Flottes Debüt...Single stieg dann bis auf #11 in UK.
****
erste Single der irischen Punk-Band um Bob Geldof...
****
Schon leicht kommerziell wirkender Punk, dem die Aggressivität und Rohheit der britischen Ur-Punks fehlt.
****
#11 ist ja quasi eine doppelte #1 ;-)
