States - "Picture Me With You" (forgotten song)

While reminiscing with friends about Norfolk's Boathouse being torn down, I was poking around YouTube and uncovered a song which I had completely forgotten about: "Picture Me With You" by Norfolk's own States.

Released in 1981, I recall hearing this pretty frequently on the radio in middle school but I don't think I realized at the time that they were a local band (was this song ever played outside of Hampton Roads?). This was their second and final LP; I have no idea what happened to them after that.

Squarely in the late 70s / early 80s new wave mode (check out the shirts in the video!), this song still sounds pretty good.

"Picture Me With You" -- live version (@ Rogues in Va Beach), studio version.
