From the 1970s band The Spinners, we move to the 1990s band The Spin Doctors. Instead of being from Motown, this next band is from New York City.
This is not a one-hit-wonder band either, but I think I'd call it a "one-album-wonder" band. That album was Pocket Full of Kryptonite, recorded in 1991. There were a number of hit songs off of it, once they got more publicity in 1992, including Little Miss Can't Be Wrong. There were a few more albums from the band, and like a lot of them, they played way past their prime, but from the Wiki discography, I don't know songs from any of the others.
What a great beat and bright sound! The early 1990s were an era of "alternative rock", and no, we didn't say "alt-rock". I don't know if you would consider this part of that alternative rock, but it reminds me of some of that - see the 10,000 Maniacs, with Hey, Jack Kerouac , Lilydale , and Like the Weather.
I don't think I've ever seen this video, stated by youtube to be their "official" one. I know I had a TV in 1992, but I doubt I had a cable hook-up. Anyway, it beats watching a vinyl record go 'round and 'round at 33 rpm, right?
