    The video with Ross as a savage jungle cannibal/tigress? I was just a teenager but I knew it was very, very wrong for her to be depicted in that manner. I was embarrassed for her.

    Well, I'll just note that even though "Mirror, Mirror" was a top 10 pop hit and "The Boss" was not, you rarely hear MM in her live show but she ALWAYS includes "The Boss." As for "Swept Away" -- I...

    Ashford and Simpson? They could have helped with good songs, cohesion and pop crossover dreams. It wasn't strictly the production with the RCA albums. The songs were either subpar or a poor fit for...

    "This Time, Baby" was the hit of my birthday party last spring. It amazes me how it is not better known but everyone loves it on first listen.

    Agree. I love her for this reason. She is the ultimate survivor -- though I am still indifferent to her insistence on closing shows with 'I Will Survive.'

    Whitney making the list for the HOF is perplexing. She was not a songwriter and the type of music she is known for can only loosely be categorized as rock and roll. If Whitney is eligible then...
