The Romantics are an American rock n roll and power pop band from Detroit, Michigan. The band adopted the name "The Romantics" because it formed on Valentine's Day, 1977. The Romantics achieved moderate popularity in the United States, Canada, and parts of Asia, Australia, Europe, and Latin America during the first half of the 80s on the strength of the band's catchy, energetic songs and stylish, memorable music videos. Their success has ebbed and flowed, but hit singles "What I Like About You" and "Talking In Your Sleep" remain very popular.
