John Lennon, without a doubt. I poured out my remembrances of his death, forty years later, here in the TNOCS, when Tom covered "(Just Like) Starting Over". I don't know that you'd call her a celebrity, but I was heartbroken by Christa McAuliffe's death in the Challenger explosion. Each of the seven crew members' deaths was unspeakably tragic. Yet I found it just so poignant that the schoolteacher had died.
In your second paragraph, irishbear, you describe perfectly why I still enjoy "How Will I Know" (which I give a 9) a little more than "I Wanna Dance" (which I now give an 8). "Dance", it seems to me, just lacks that certain little bite inside of it.
I'll have metamorphosed thoughts on "Toy Soldiers", when we get there in virtual '89. Another song on which my take has changed considerably over the years.
And you'd identified it as a petticoat above. I clearly don't know much...
Yes, I think that's the case, thegue. Lots of people liked the music, a lot, until they didn't. What will Tom do? Is he going to score solely on the music itself, or is the scandal going to overwhelm? I can't wait to find out.
Oh, thanks! It seems kinda like a type of petticoat, as little as I know. And I don't know much...
Brigit, congratulations on your awards, even though I'm 30+ years late! One quick question: What are tulle crinolines? They sound fancy and decorative.
This is exactly what we needed to hear today, mt! Here's wishing everyone a great weekend!
A shout out to "Waiting For A Star To Fall". It's a 9.
This might not be my favorite Whitney Houston number one, but I seem to enjoy it a good bit more today than I did when it was released. I'm not quite sure how this reappraisal happened. I'm also not sure that I can make this like-it-more-now claim about very many songs from that era.   Maybe I'd been just a little too taken with her first album's hits ('cause I was), and was inevitably going to have found her sophomore effort wanting. My belated apologies, Whitney!
I wouldn't have necessarily figured that "Head To Toe" would reach 600+ comments, but sometimes we reach a critical mass of nostalgia and/or appreciation. That (sometimes unanticipated) level of appreciation isn't evidence that posters' comments are suspect or inauthentic.
Leave it to John McVie to tie a bow around the entire situation. Sometimes I'm glad I'm not a multimillionaire rock star. Sometimes.
All the best to your teams, DanceFever! Are you at leisure to say which state and classification?
I've never heard of this in my life. Whippets? All I know is the dog.
I turned 26 in 1987, but was still listening to new music and even following the charts. It got more difficult as I edged into my 30s, though. Some of that was simply having greater family and work responsibilities that took up almost all of my time and brainwaves.
The very softest rock! It's literally "one" on the scale of one to ten.
