Subject: MICHAEL MCDONALD IN THE 80'S POLL (2 options)

Written By: robby76 on 11/10/05 at 11:24 pm

Michael McDonald in the mid-80's rocked! "No Lookin' Back" is simply genius and his version of "What A Fool Believes" is awesome! i have this album on in the car all the time!

EDIT : I meant for this to be a 2 option poll, but too late to change it... sorry.

I liked Sweet Freedom the best.  It was from the excellent '86 movie Running Scared  8)

I didn't know he sang What A Fool Believes on his own.  It was originally a hit for him in 1978 (i believe) when he was a Doobie Brother :)

Sweet Freedom...but let's not forget (pun intended) "I Keep Forgetting"

No way did I miss that one out... ha ha! Not my favourite song of his, but worthy of being on the poll. Rush job - sorry!

And for those who haven't heard "No Lookin' Back"... please track it down... it has that quintessential 80's feel!

Totally agree. :)

This seems to be the least played hit of his today, but it's my fave song he's done (either solo or with the Doobie's). Very synthesized - sort of a love song, but upbeat at the same time.

I do not like Michael McDonald or the Doobie Brothers!

I did like "Yah Mo B There."  What a title!  The video was great, too.

It was referring to God. Yah is God in African countries.
