Fair old mix there, Karen...

1. Macho Man - Village People 3
Not a terrible attempt, but less worthy than 'YMCA' or 'In The Navy'...

2. Live And Let Die - Wings 3
Once again, not terrible, but spoiled by that mock-reggae bit in the middle...

3. Do What You Do - Jermaine Jackson 3
Inoffensive piece of slush...still listenable, but far from his best...

4. Carrie - Europe 3
Big power ballad from the big-haired Swedes...it's okay, but 'Countdown' was their finest moment...

5. Trouble - Lindsey Buckingham ?
I'm certain I've got a copy of this knocking around somewheres...obviously I haven't played it enough as it's just not registering...!!

6. Cherish - Madonna 4
Just about borders on the acceptable side of twee without overdoing it...simple little catchy tune...

7. Stoned Soul Picnic - 5th Dimension 4
Superior vocal group with a brilliantly 'lazy' song...excellent...

8. They Don't Know - Tracey Ullman 4
Very clever 60's-sounding tune...still appeals...

9. It's Raining Again - Supertramp 4
Only heard this again the other day after many years...not their best, but a fine effort...

10. Last Dance - Donna Summer ?
Same comments as per #5...

11. All Day And All Of The Night - The Kinks 4
As raw and as basic as you're ever going to get...this was before Ray developed his lyrical skills...!!

12. Shattered Dreams - Johnny Hates Jazz 4
Rather embarrassingly, I thought this was McCartney when I first heard it...!! Still a good song, but a bit dated on the production...

13. Born To Be Alive - Patrick Hernandez 4
Dead catchy disco thumper which I still like...incidentally, one of Patrick's backing singers when he played live many years ago, was that girl at #6...

14. Turn To Stone - ELO 4
A fine number when they were on their top form ('77)...

15. Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time) - The Delfonics 4
Delicious 'sweet soul' effort from a more-than competant group...who decided to let the New Kids near it years later??!!

1. Macho Man - Village People  Not one of their best.  3

Crashes in at about 1 minute 20 secs into the song, Karen...

15. Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time) - The Delfonics  NKOTB borrowed this??!  I was not aware!  The original is very nice.  3.5

NKOTB certainly did borrow this...it was stuck on the back of 'Hangin' Tough' in the US...I think we had it on the back of something different...well, at least it was on the back...!!

I can't believe ( :o ) the rating some of you people are giving "Macho Man" (except for woops).

Okay, here's what I'll do: I'll re-rate my listing and be as easy as possible. I think I was a too unfair to some songs (must've been the time of day). So here I go again...

1. Macho Man - Village People  = 1 (No change here!)
2. Live And Let Die - The Wings = 4 (Not a bad Bond song. Not the best, but I like it)
5. Trouble - Lindsey Buckingham = 4 ("I think I'm in trouble...". Do you remember its funky beginning? LB has done some good solo stuff. 92's "Out of the Cradle" comes to mind)
6. Cherish - Madonna = 5 (No change here. One of Madonna's last great songs)
7. Stoned Soul Picnic - 5th Dimension = 5 (No change here. A great '60s song)
10. Last Dance - Donna Summer = 3 (Let's up its rating. Why? Because for a disco song it's infinitely better than #1)
11. All Day And All Of The Night - The Kinks = 4 (Gots to love The Kinks, but I do prefer "You Really Got Me")
12. Shattered Dreams - Johnny Hates Jazz = 2 (too bland, but compared to #1 it gets another point)
13. Born To Be Alive - Patrick Hernandez = 2 (no change but still ahead of #1)
14. Turn To Stone - ELO = 2 (to me not one of their best, but better than...)
15. Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time) - The Delfonics = 3 (move it up a point)

;) ;D

I'd say it's pretty evident that you don't like "Macho Man", zcrito!  ;D ;)
