This is one of their best albums.
Jerry W. Hall
This is a guy who knows what he's doing, and you can hear the maturity in his playing.

25 years later I feel like I've discovered their music all over again.

Canadian rockers Loverboy released its sophomore effort Get Lucky in October of 1981.
In 1981, Loverboy broke out big at the height of the Canadian invasion alongside fellow Canadian rock bands Rush, Triumph, Bryan Adams and Saga when their self-titled debut album went Gold at the hands of the singles Turn Me Loose and The Kid Is Hot Tonight.
Faced with topping a successful debut, lead singer Mike Reno, guitarist Paul Dean, keyboard player Doug Johnson, drummer Matthew Frenette and late bass player Scott Smith(R.I.P.) went back to Vancouver with co-producer the late Bruce Fairbairn(R.I.P.) and recorded their most successful album ever as I found out in 1981 when my third older sister acquired this album on vinyl and played it to death (but was fine by me).
The album's first and biggest hit "Working for the Weekend" opens this album on a rocking note. It's a truly great song and is still a rock radio staple 25 years on. Next is the album's other big hit "When It's Over". This mid-tempo rocker showcases Reno's versatile voice and Dean's harmonies and extra backing vocals from Nancy Nash. It also features a superb Dean solo. Next is "Jump" which was written by Dean, Reno and fellow Canadian rocker Bryan Adams and his colleague Jim Vallance. This song is a great rocker and a song that should have been a hit but never mind. Next is another mid-tempo rocker "Gangs in the Street" which is a social commentary on gangs and their fight to protect their territory. To hear a rock band like Loverboy write a track about this subject without vulgar language is a miracle and nice to hear unlike rappers who throw every obscenity in the book in their gangsta tracks.

When this album was at its peak you could hear nearly any of the songs on the radio. This is one of the essential albums of the 80's. Why can't new artist sound this good?

"Get Lucky" is Loverboy's best album. When I was in middle school in the early to mid 1980s, this was my favorite album. I had it on cassette, and I played it so much that I wore it out.
Everyobdy knows the song "Working for the Weekend." It's a truly great song. But it isn't necessarily the best song on here. Actually, there's so much diversity on this CD, it's somewhat hard to say what the best song really is.
"Take Me to the Top" gets big credit for experimenting with non-conventional song structure. That keyboard riff is so awesome! And then combine it with all the other great instruments, and Mike Reno's perfect singing, and you have a true classic.
"Jump" is also excellent. I don't remember ever hearing this one on the radio. That's too bad, because it could have made an excellent single. It's got a great guitar riff, great lyrics, great drumming, and a certain urgency and seriousness that give it strength and power.
"Gangs in the Street" is a good social commentary. How nice to hear a song about this subject that doesn't contain any vulgar language.
"Lucky Ones" is a song about how some people have better luck than others. Again, Loverboy does a good job at making social commentary. Yes, it does idneed seem as if there are some people in the world who have everything handed to them, without ever having to put any effort into it at all.
Now that I think about it, every song on this CD is excellent. There is no filler here at all.
For some reason, when this album was issued on CD, the order of the songs was changed. I like to program my CD player to play the songs in the original order.

This is the album that put Loverboy on the list of '80's superstars. It is a classic pop/rock record from start to finish. Nearly every track got radio airplay. "Working For The Weekend" and "When It's Over" hit the Top 40 and "Jump", "Gangs In The Street", "Lucky Ones" and "Take Me To The Top" were rock radio staples. Most of these tracks still get played on AOR stations. If you're looking for definitive '80's rock, this is it. It's simply one of the best albums of the early '80's. (If you're wondering what I meant by the bandana question, Mike Reno, the lead singer, always wore one as a headband; it started a fashion trend during that era!)

"Get Lucky" is without a doubt Loverboy's best album. Great songs from beginning to end.

'Nuff said.

Chances are you've already heard the songs on this CD. I was in high school when Loverboy hit the big time. To be honest, I really didn't care for them at the time. Me and my friends always made fun of how they looked in their videos. Now, at 40, I was browsing through songs of my youth and found Loverboy. I was surprised by how much more complex they were than other pop bands of the day. As a band, they are tight. Mike Reno's vocals are as good as anyone in this genre. I'm still not a big of "Working for the Weekend" (never warmed up to this one) but "Lucky Ones" and especially "When it's Over" are are the gems here. I don't know what's in the water in Canada, but they seem to turn out more than their fair share of solid musical acts.
