    I forgot about that. That's EXACTLY what it is. A fucking country music video.

    5 tracks each from both WACF and FW are in my all time top 20. 4 from WACF and 3 from FW are in my top 10. My top 3 are all from WACF.

    I got to put together a top 20 one day. I tried to put together a top 10 once and it ended up with 26 songs on it.

    This one came on Classic Rewind when I was driving home from hoops last night. Definitely in my top 10 …

    It's a nice pop song, a good song. But not a top 10 VH song to me. If I want pop from that record, I go to JC.

    FYLT is the quintessential VH pop song and obliterates JC.

    Nope - JC's lyrics are quite meaningful, as one of the rare VH song written in the female POV. FYLT lyrics are quite generic. I give the edge to JC!

    I know that I should have more 80s respekt for Greg Kihn. I do. But why don’t I?

    Our love’s in jeopardy, baby.

    I haven’t really followed Sam too much outside of VH so I’m sure this question or observation won’t go over well BUT is this song a good indication of where he is vocally in 2019? It sounds like he lost his upper register? Maybe it’s just me? I realize he’s 70+ which may be as good as it gets...

    Sammy desperately wants respect and one final shot at a Grammy so what does he do? He joins an 80s tour full of has-beens.

    He still has a higher register than what's on this song, as evidenced by plenty of video of him singing his older stuff.

    I think he sang this one lower for one of two reasons, or maybe even a mix: One, because he wants to be able to sing all the new stuff night after night, and/or Two: Because he simply thought that was the right way to do it.

    But it's certainly not because he couldn't sing it an octave higher, especially in the studio.

    I don't think he sounds great doing it this way, and it kind of defeats the point of Mikey's backing vocals, too. Mikey is too low and doesn't sound right, either.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    Let's face facts: Pretty much everyone we grew up with is a has-been at this point. Few of those artists are still putting out new music, and none of them that are has that music being relevant.
