Hit Me Loverboy One More Time

Loverboy will be on NBC tonight performing an Enrique Iglesias song. It’s for a new (i.e., imported/Americanized) reality show in which has-beens veteran hitmakers compete for lunch money.

Great concept (bands play their biggest hit and a contemporary song), but I’m so disappointed by the cover selections.

A Flock Of Seagulls: “I Ran” and “On The Way Down” (Ryan Cabrera)
Arrested Development: “Tennesse” and “Heaven” (Los Lonely Boys)
CeCe Peniston: “Finally” and “There You’ll Be” (Faith Hill)
Loverboy: “Working For The Weekend” and “Hero” (Enrique Iglesias)
Tiffany: “I Think We’re Alone Now” and “Breakaway” (Kelly Clarkson)

Other songfighters this season include Wang Chung, The Knack, Irene Cara, Sophie B. Hawkins, Cameo, Tommy Tutone, Vanilla Ice, and The Motels. I wanna see Vanilla take on “Mr. Brightside.” That’ll give us something to blog about.

Anyway, good luck Loverboy. Hope you’re as good as this guy (link via Best Week Ever).

Here is the original Loverboy video for “Working For The Weekend.”
