    Tunnel O' Love is a great track by Walter Egan, it was the B-side of the Magnet And Steel single back in '78 and every bit as good as well. It rocks and is available on iTunes.

    PLEASE try a song of his other than Magnet and steel, some are really good. The smooth Hot Summer Nights and the catchy Finally find a girlfriend are exceptional tracks. No reason they shouldn't have become a hit like Magnet and Steel.
