Boston's "More than a Feeling" at least sported some decent vocal harmonies (but that's about it as far as praising them goes) and I don't really mind Supertramp, because anyone who makes a career out of playing a fast version of "Chopsticks" on a Rhodes piano has got to be admired.

"Rosanna", though... I really would rather be pulled off by the aptly-named Dik Mik than gyrate pelvi to that one. And how can you possibly get the horn to that ghastly Foreigner track? Or Pamela Anderson, for that matter. Before I sound too pious, though, I did allow myself to stay through a Nik Kershaw song once. That could go on one of those sickly, "Love is..." cartoons.

:lol: don't knock Kershaw. Stacey had "Wouldn't It Be Good" on on 8 hour loop one day at work. Well, close to it.

That was the song. Inoffensive enough number, not the most interesting but one rarely gets arms popped around the neck when - f'r'instance - Smack My Bitch Up starts playing.

When I did my series of Dirty Dancing hits, including I've had the time of life, I found the women just couldn't resist. It's the whole Patrick Swayze angle.

1bassleft would beup for a smooch to the entire foreigner catalogue if there was the promise of a matched set of NOS EL84 Mullards, and access to the private valve stock of Alfie, our local TV/Amp/Radio repairman. :lol:

Funnelly nuff, I can snout Mullard EL84s for even less than you pay for sex, Lee. I don't need them matched as the cathode-biasing takes care of that. However, your Alfie has a stock of nice old valves? I'd even snog Pamela Anderson to get my eyes and hands on them...

I got an arm round my neck during 'Smack my bitch up'. I was in a circle pit at the time tho...

And yet, "Jukebox Hero" has to be the secret theme song of all us guitarists, doesn't it?
