Album · 1974 · 17 Songs. Not that it's a huge stretch or surprise, but did you know that Rick "Jessie's Girl" Springfield starred in a ‘70s Saturday morning cartoon before landing a role on General Hospital? During his tenure on the animated Mission Magic he rocked out for small children with a morally conclusive song at the end of each episode. This collection of those songs assembles a surprisingly stellar body of work, especially if you happen to dig '70s guitar pop with stick-to-your-shoe bubblegum hooks and glammed-out double-guitar leads.
Richard Lewis Springthorpe (born 23 August 1949) is an Australian-American musician and actor, known by his stage name Rick Springfield. He was a member of the pop rock group Zoot from 1969 to 1971, then started his solo career with his debut single "Speak to the Sky" reaching the top 10 in Australia in mid-1972, when he moved to the United States. He had a No. 1 hit with "Jessie's Girl" in 1981 in both Australia and the .
It was a forgettable piece of fluff that would be forgotten entirely except for Springfield's future stardom and the album made up of songs he would perform at the end of each episode. Mission Magic was released in 1974 and disappeared without a trace but is actually a pretty magical piece of bubblegummy goodness. Unlike the usual procedures for an album like this, Springfield wrote all the songs on the Mission Magic soundtrack, and he proves quite adept at cranking out hooky, fun, and simple tunes that won't tax your brain but will leave you feeling good.
