"(The Ballad Of) Lone Ranger" isn't an alright song, but as the previous reviewer allan_k said, the b-side, "Chorus Girl" is a phenomenal song. The female vocals remind very closely to some of the best synth-pop vocalists in Europe of that time: Grace Jones, Berlin's vocalist, and even Blondie's Deborah Harry! As for the synthesizer work in this song - it's amazing! Correlating with the beautiful vocals, we hear the sounds building up all the way into the chorus of, "Hold on, hold on! Hold on, hold on!!" Finally, the drum machine work is also A+ in this song, intermittantly appearing throughout the entire song. "Chorus Girl" is an amazing and relatively unknown b-side Italo Disco masterpiece!

Go straight to the B-side. It's a 5-minute Broadway musical, except with actually bearable music. More than bearable, in fact. This is choice stuff. It's almost a Ronny song, except Chris Keane goes for Shirley Bassey instead of Marlene Dietrich.
