States - "My Latest Girl" (forgotten song)

Three years ago (!) I covered Norfolk's States and "Picture Me With You" as a forgotten song.  Today, on a whim, I played that song again and in the Youtube recommendations was a song called "My Latest Girl".  The title seemed vaguely familiar so I clicked on it and there it was -- a song I haven't heard in probably 30+ years.  I can't remember the room number of my office but I can remember a song title I haven't heard since middle school?!

This song is the first single of their 1979 debut LP "The States", and the sound is squarely in the late 70s / early 80s, Cars-influenced new wave genre.  I don't remember much about the song, but I assume this is another thing we can credit to the late Carol Taylor and her commitment to local music.  Of course at the time, to me it was just "music on the radio" and I didn't really understand the difference between local and national acts.

Anyone else remember this song from K94 and/or FM99 from back in the day?
