I loved Nick Kamen. I thought he was gorgeous. He's one of the reasons why I like Madonna because she penned his debut single "Each Time You Break My Heart" in 1986.

As much as I enjoyed some of their songs (Patience, Knocking On Heaven's Door, Live & Let Die) I never went much on the voice. Personal opinion, of course, ech to their own.....

1985 - Close My Eyes
1987 - Believe in Me
1987 - One Night (is All it Takes)

Crap I totally forgot Michael McDonald who would be right up there at the top spot! His Sweet Freedom album always makes my top 10 albums from the 80s.

Vocally I like Kenny Loggins too, but his music for me never did the voice justice.

Paul Carrack (Mike and the Mechanics)


No argument there.  As a solo artist, he was awesome, and in Mike + the Mechanics, he was excellent, but I kind of prefered Paul M. Young more as the vocalist for the Mechanics.  'All I Need is A Miracle' and the seemingly forgotten 1991 classic 'Word of Mouth' are still amazing!

I thought the song went "Ooh it takes every kinda putters, to make what putts about" or the classic "I didn't mean to hole in one".  How about "Top Flite's always running around, trying to find Titleist" :D

That could be it.  A lot of people get kind of thrown off by anything that makes someone that's well known look different.  Times have changed a lot and Simon has changed his looks over the years.  :) Or it could be the eye makeup that threw you off too.  :)
