Fixx is a 9. True is a 10. Sexy & 17 is a good rocker, but a bit icky now: a 5. Ritz is a 1. Bad singing of a public domain song in front of a cheap Casio keyboard shouldn't even be played on the radio. Fuck. This. Song. Kill it with fire. Shoot it into the sun.
Tangential mondegreen for today from "King Of Wishful Thinking": "I get over you/I know I will' I'll pretend my shit's not stinkin'"

Here's the last top 40 hit for past TNO subject Bruce Hornsby & The Range, "Across The River". It comes from their 1990 A Night On The Town album, which hit the US top 20 but failed to go Gold. It was also the last album credited to The Range before Hornsby went solo. The song, which features guitar work by Jerry Garcia, would peak at #18 pop, #8 AC and #1 rock. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmIJ-q9uCq0
Welcome, SCMarc. Say 'hello' to Billy Pilgrim if you see him in your time travels.

Goodwill from recording "Back in Black", "Urgent", "Photograph", "Rock Of Ages", "Drive", "Animal" and "Pour Some Sugar On Me" can only go so far. This song is strike one. Strikes two and three will come with Bryan Adams in another year. Not to mention the whole Shania thing.
2 more Rock #1s from 1990's Recycler and 1 from 1993's Antenna.
*I've always said that what sells in rock is rebellion. Rebellious people latched onto this in COFTZ, because the band was rebelling against the need to record it. They didn't give a fuck about the song and were trying to deliberately tank the recording. That attitude came through in the performance and actually helped sell the song. Metal Health is just an anthem of metal; an all-time classic that brought 'head banging' into the mainstream vocabulary. I still get pumped listening to it, even though it sounds like it was recorded in a glass jar (damn 80s reverb addiction). *ON-J 80s Rop 10 hits ranked by me. 1) Magic 2) Xanadu (with ELO) 3) A Little More Love 4) Make A Move On Me 5) Twist Of Fate 6) Heart Attack 7) Physical *"Alright" is the only Janet single from RN1814 that I still can't quite remember the melody.
1) The model in the video is not a hobo, but what about the guy in the song? 2) I know the costs/hassle of adopting is a lot, fucking randos you pick up on the side of the road should be at the bottom of the list of ways to get a baby. It shouldn't even be on the list. It shouldn't even be written down on paper.
Spoiler alert: They'll have 3 more in the 90s.
Same here, 3,2, 1. It's a countdown to Suck.
Gotta go with Giant here. Dann Huff is an unsung guitar god and this album rocks.
Because the orphanages are all empty, so the only thing left to do is to fuck some hobos.
Their appearance in BTTF3 really takes me out of the movie, but man, I love this song. Very welcome lack of synths here.
Meanwhile, on the AC Chart, Divorced Dad Phil Collins maintains his hold on the #1 spot for a second week with "Do You Remember?" He'll be back here on Wednesday as well.

Most of his hits range from bittersweet ("Sacrifice", "Nikita", "Sad Songs (Say So Much)", "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues", "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word", "Someone Saved My Life Tonight") to just plain bitter* ("I'm Still Standing", "I Don't Wanna Go On With You Like That"). There are exceptions ("Philadelphia Freedom", "Don't Go Breaking My Heart", "Crocodile Rock", "Bennie & The Jets", "Island Girl", "Wrap Her Up", maybe "Kiss The Bride"), but in a career of over 60 chart singles, they are the rarities. Maybe that's what makes "Club At The End Of The Street" stand out so much. Bernie Taupin was trying to emulate the Drifters' classic "Under The Boardwalk", and even noted "Think Drifters" at the bottom of the lyric sheet to John. Here is the animated video for CATEOTS directed by Derek Hayes, who did Rod Stewart's "The Motown Song" and Madonna's "Dear Jessie" videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m34NGreosnE&ab_channel=EltonJohnVEVO
Going with Madonna, Penn (not Sean), and Humpty Dance.
Achilles' Hell is the name of the Greek bar I used to shoot pool in back in college.
