Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

Before I get to the video, I just want to let you all know that I know that I haven't posted recaps for the last two weeks of The Two Coreys. I keep forgetting to watch it. I'm sorry...especially to all of you whack-off artists out there who keep finding my blog via Google searches for "Susie Feldman tits." I'm sure she and her tits are just fine. Hopefully I can catch a marathon one of these days and get us all up to speed on all the Coreyness.

And, even though I gave up its weekly recaps, I've been meaning to give an update on Rock of Love. I will, eventually. I keep forgetting that too.

So, in honor of all my forgetfulness, here is Michael McDonald with "I Keep Forgettin'" from his 1982 solo debut, If That's What It Takes. Oh, some of you may turn up your noses at this "soft rock," but why don't you just admit that you love it? How could you not? This song kicks so much ass, I'm surprised that there's any ass left in this world at all.



I also keep forgetting to remind you all about that time I met Glenn Tilbrook. Remember that? That actually kicked more ass than this song, if you can imagine.

I'm sorry, I think you're really cool. But this song kicks no ass whatsoever.

yup yup good song

Um, it has an excellent bass line, witness Nate Dogg and Warren G's sampling of it. Michael did sing his heart out, but he puss'd out on the lyrics.

Not my favorite Michael McDonald song, but it's not too bad. Like WP said, the bass line is killer though.

I think that Michael McDonald is one of those male vocalists that non-singers such as me try to sound like. Try as I might, my voice is too deep to hit those higher notes on "What A Fool Believes".

this is the part where i have to cop to being lame because i've heard this song before. i WAS only 2 when it came out though. although i feel like that's not going to win me any sympathy ;-)

Shelly said...

Omigod, I *love* that song! I have it on a compilation cd and I listen to it all the time.

Barbara (aka Layla) said...

I like Michael McD. but yeah, its a 2 compared to meeting Glenn which would be a 99.9 (even though I didn't know who he was till I saw your post a few weeks ago, I'm so uncool and unhip sometimes).

Beth said...

I should kick your ass for touching my Tilbrook.

Turnbaby said...

Mmmmmmm really like him and really like the super smooth vibe of this song.

Travis said...

I think that sometimes "soft rock" is a euphamism for "really good music that doesn't make your ears bleed". Sometimes we need a little mellow in our ear buds.

I've never had a romantic encounter with Metallica blasting in the background, although I'm sure there's nothing wrong with that if it's your style.

Michael McDonald makes really good music. It may not be to everyone's taste, but for me this song does kick major ass.

Cheers!

I remember this song, but I don't remember this video.
You always find the ones I have never seen!

Have a great weekend!

Love the bass line, love the song. I have this on my iPod.

Coaster Punchman said...

Dear, I too have my share of um, strange songs that I like. But Michael McDonald? What on earth did we do to deserve this?

But before you get too angry with me, please remember that I like 3 (three!) songs by Bryan Adams. Yep, me and old Pizza Face. We're a happy pair.

LoraLoo said...

I'll cop to it, I like this song. I too have it on my iPod!

There's definitely a time and place for "soft rock"...

"Susie Feldman tits."
And what is wrong with being a whack-off artist?
We prefer the term: "Onanistic Engineer" by the way.

Artful Dodger said...

Isn't this the song they kept playing over and over on the 40 Year Old Virgin? Where they always play it on the TV's at the electronics store he works at. Me thinks so, me must watch movie again to findeth out.

Johnny Yen said...

I love the album that I Keep Forgetting came from, though that might crush my punk cred.

He did a bunch of studio backing vocals, including a bunch with Steely Dan, before he joined the Doobie Brothers.

Dale said...

I like the way he ambles to the piano like he just sort of remembered that he's gonna sing, sing a song.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Isn't there a special corner of hell where they play nothing but Michael McDonald?

But please, grandma, tell us about the time you met Glenn?

An80sNut said...

I think they find you searching like that because you come up #4/#5 on Google. (I checked.)

McDonald's best of is on my iPod. But I'm still trying to understand the lyrical significance of "Yah Mo B There."

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
