Song From 1986 Still Relevant to Midland/Odessa

In 1986 a song came on the radio by David & David called, ‘Boomtown’. It was written about Midland/Odessa, well not really, but it could have been.

‘David & David was an American rock duo composed of Los Angeles-based studio musicians David Baerwald and David Ricketts. They were best known for their debut single ”Welcome to the Boomtown” from the album Boomtown. The single reached #37 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1986 and #8 on the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart.[1]

Boomtown was produced by Davitt Sigerson. It peaked at #39 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold in the U.S. by theRIAA. The followup single, “Swallowed By the Cracks” reached #14 on the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart, while “Ain’t So Easy” peaked at #51 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #17 on the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart.

David & David disbanded shortly after Boomtown and Baerwald and Ricketts continued to work with other musicians. They both collaborated with Sheryl Crow on her debut LPTuesday Night Music Club.’ -Wikipedia
