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