Michael Stanley band was just not meant to be a national smash. Sadly. They were on Solid Gold, American Bandstand, MTV. Just couldn't click with hit radio. They were Rock enough but had enough Pop sound too. I really think if "She can't love you" came out post 1984 when TOP40 really took off again, they might have been met with a different conclusion.
It also shows how ####ed up radio is in 2021. There were so many local hits in Chicago during the 80s that WLS-FM, WDRV even WCHI or any other station will not touch. Also another reason why terrestrial radio matters less and less every day.
