Flat as a Pancake would remain their most popular album spawning two charting singles, the well-known anthem "Never Been Any Reason" and "Love Me tonight", both written by guitarist Mike Somerville.
This lineup of John Schlitt (vocals), Mike Somerville (guitars), Roger Boyd (keyboards), Dan Birney (bass) and Steve Huston (drums) would last through four more studio albums and a double-LP live album when in 1980 Schlitt, Birney and Somerville left the band although Somerville would return for 1994 through 2003. By the mid-80’s, John Schlitt, had joined Petra, a christian rock band when lead singer Greg X. Volz left the band.

- LyricsDid you see any action?
Did you make any friends?
Would you like some affection
Before I leave again?
Well, I've been walking behind you
- LyricsI get the same old dream
Same time every night
Fall to the ground and I wake up
So I get out of bed
Put on my shoes and in my head
- LyricsDrive 200 hundred miles
To a place I've never seen
One more bar, back to the car and
I'm gone before I know where I've been, yeah
Now, I don't know where you come from

Yeah, down in Jefftown creek
You and me and a bottle of wine
And the night just felt so sweet
Came up Sunday morning, the first day of the week
- LyricsGettin' lucky is the name of the game
What you call it, it all means the same
Put on your good looks and your dancing shoes
Go downtown and try to shake those blues
But you know, another night
