My Music Monday
For no good reason, I've had the Romantics' (my lord, they have a website and are still touring - with the likes of Night Ranger and Loverboy!) "One in a Million" stuck in my head.
Circa 1983, the song is better than their "Talking in Your Sleep" and not nearly as overplayed or annoying as "What I Like About You". If they had other songs they were lost on me.
"One in a Million" is one of those semi-guilty pleasures. It's got a hook, but still not horribly definable than most (post) new wave groups that were flooding the airwaves of the time.
I'd never seen the video for it until I searched it out for here.
Horrible. Yet, again, not horribly original from anything from 1983. A very typical video for this type of band and genre. And oy - the hair!
And while clearly, they lip sync the song, you can still tell (or bet / assume) that the lead singer has a speech impediment of some kind. Look - I swear he has some slushy esses going on - which would just send Meredity over the edge.
