    Well...I don't have a defense for "All Out of Love" but "Lost In Love"...? I'll meet you in the parking lot, good sir.

    My co-worker was like, he's outside of her dressing room. I'm like, you have to get him to get some good stories for us!

    Here's one by Sherrif. I remember calling up a radio station and the jockey told me "we don't play any wimpy songs here." He said it in a really patronizing way too. And I should have cussed him out but I was too flabbergasted. This was a mainstream station that played all sorts of "wimpy music" and as someone who hung out with punks and ones that really liked the raw stuff and not the mainstream stuff would have laughed their heads off at this guy. I myself, was listening to stuff this guy probably never heard of.

    The video might actually be more embarrassing than the song.

    Y'know, "Lost in Love" by itself wouldn't be so abominable, but then there's other "winner" tunes by these guys like:
    * "The One That You Love"
    * "Making Love Out of Nothing at All"
    * "Every Woman in the World"
    and countless others that, in the end, condemn all of their output to one (or two) of the circles of AM-radio hell.

    I guess Air Supply's biggest crime was not being a one-hit wonder.

    Not embarrassed by this group at all. Don't think it's unhip or uncool. But I can see why people would think it. When I was in Hong Kong, I found out about a very popular group there from the 1970s called the Wynners. Performed a lot of their songs in English. Even had a movie about them, which features this song, "Gonna Get You."

    "I am a man of peace."

    "A man of peace...who fights like ten tigers."

    Whatever her occupation, she sure was purty!



    I thought she was the most gorgeous country singer of my youth not named Crystal Gayle.

    That wasn't really a bad song, IMO, but it paled in comparison to What I Like About You. As for the video, I used to get annoyed with that type of stuff to get my attention as a teen - not that it didn't, but still...

    No argument from me, Major. They were earworm peddlers of the most insidious kind, IMO.

    The melodies and harmonies were fine...the lyrics, however, were cringeworthy.

    Exactly, BA. If it weren't for the crappy lyrics, I wouldn't mind their melodies stuck in my head.

    Yeah...if those songs were somehow about continuity in DC comic book stories, they'd be great.

    My co-worker said her uncle said that she was short. I thought Cher was like 5' 9" or something? On the other hand, she's like 72 and uh, sometimes older people do sorta shrink...
