GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!- “AH !LEAH!”- DONNIE IRIS

Girls! Girls! Girls!- Ah! Leah!”- Donnie Iris. Donnie Iris was in his late 30’s before his first solo album was released in 1980. He had previously had success in a couple Pittsburgh area bands- The Jaggerz- he wrote “The Rapper”- and was a member of Wild Cherry when they hit #1 with “Play That Funky Music.” “Ah! Leah!” was his first solo single and it went to #29 on the Billboard Hot 100- and got a ton of airplay here in the Pittsburgh area. He would have three Top 40 hits in the early 80’s but this was his biggest and his ‘signature” song. Iris is now in his late 70’s and still active. This song still gets a good amount of airplay in the area- Iris being a local hero.
