    I actually liked "Baby Come Back" from 1978 by Player. "The Pina Colada Song" by Rupert what's his name from 1980 not so much.

    Come on JAI, I know there has got to be a few. Thinks about one from over the years where you just turned the dial as soon as you heard it come on.

    Me too. One of THE all time great ballads in my humble opinion, but it has to be the full length album version. That piano intro/outro is so moving and tear inducing.

    Correct me, if I'm wrong, Bluebrock. But I do believe TL was produced by Jam & Lewis.

    Like the Third Rock From the Sun "laff". Lurved that show!! Especially - " My God! I'm gorgeous!!" Whenever John Lithgow's character saw his reflection.

But even though Jam & Lewis blew the top off of them with Tender Love, I always thought the Force MDs bore that '80s NYC sound. Lost opportunity to have done so much more in the short time they recorded.
    Thanks, Jerry for letting me know TL was a Jam & Lewis production.

    I respectfully beg to differ on Rio! That cut was one of my favs from LeBon & co.

    The only good came out
    Say, Say, Say was the video and the quote I still spout in 2019 - "... I'm a lover, not a fighter!" (MJ to Sir Paul)

    Well, at least she has striking resemblance to Carly Simon!!!

    That line, along with Mr. McCartney's assertion that she calls him her 'super lover', is a hoot. I did get the impression that Michael's line was spoken more earnestly, though. Sir Paul was clearly camping it up.

    This is what I was talking about early in the thread. Don't get mad, this is just for fun. Besides, how can you tell another people to like something just because you do? LOL!

    she looks more like Vicki Lawrence to me. Mick Jagger and Carly Simon resemble one another more in my opinion.

    You are right, Marv! We should call this thread - "or Those songs you love to hate!"

    What about the one where the era's wrestling champ plays her "O Daddy- dear, you still the fortunate one. But girls just wanna have fuh-un!" (rinse, repeat)

    That was with Captain Lou Albano. He was a wrestling manager. That was a good song.

    So right! Thanks, Marv. Senior moment!!

    Watch it now! Girls Just Want To Have Fun is an all-time '80s happy jam. That song was emblematic of New York pop at the time that punk and new wave were starting to dominate. With that said, Cyndi lost me completely with this huge turd:

    or maybe a little like Helen Reddy??

    Perhaps her German accent which makes her annunciations a little unclear is what is bothering you? it can't be the blood curdling "ahhhhhhh"s! Lol! It's quirky , I've always liked it .

    We all know Penny's from Silver Convention right?
    "that's right !!

    Get up and boo-gie!!!"




    she's on the left .

    Groan. Get Up and Boogie and Fly Robin, Fly both belong very prominently in this thread. I cosign to both.

    My father liked this song. I remember coming home from school one day and heard this blasting from the basement. It was a new record and a new sound at the time.

    You're right. First time a record placed the strings front and center and LOUD.Who'd ever heard of such a thing? In fact the strings dominate and in essence "sing" the record far more than the scant vocals.
    I can see how this would either grab someone or totally turn them off though. I love violins so .....

    Ok. I can't remember, but who made the hit version of "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy", the song? It sounded like it was done live at a Jazz club.

    Ok, just answered my own question, Cannonball Adderley Quintet in 1966 they did "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy". I heard that so much because Dad use to play it a lot on weekends.

    That and this, ever since first listen on school bus radio, to almost everyday at the workplace radio for years, will absolutely grind the gears with its mindless pop-radio-crossover-friendly-dance-repetition, to even more mindless lyrics that I still do not understand its meanings:

    I actually thought about this one too when starting this thread. This was played so much during the Summer of 1988, along with idiots in my office repeating it drove me up the wall! LOL!

    Integrating a Holy traditional spiritual hymn sacrilegiously with rock Three Dog Night, with none of them having to do with each other, other than the coincidence of its title.

    Didn't McPherrin throw this in to fill out the album? If I recall correctly, he totally unprepared for it to be the only pop hit of his career.

    I don't know, but I wanted to beat him up for making this record! LOL!
