Ray Parker Jr had a long career in pop music that was almost solely defined by his 1984 monster hit "Ghostbusters," the theme from the movie of the same name. Yet very few people today remember that prior to his solo success, Ray fronted a popular
1970's pop/soul band called Raydio. One of their biggest hits still resonates on the airwaves today. "You Can't Change That" is an infectious tune that staked its claim in the Billboard Top Ten in 1979. Once this song gets going in your head it's hard to shake, but luckily it's one you don't seem to mind.

From 1979, a rare video clip of a live performance by Ray Parker Jr. and Raydio.
