This week's theme? Sappy ballads!
Aww, come on -- everyone loves a sweet love song. Especially one sung by a man with a mullet! Yesssssss.
This first song I absolutely adore. The Hubs says this song is "for pussies." You know my answer to that?
Me: "I would totally make out with you to this song..."
The Hubs: "Um, I mean I LIKE this song. This song is awesome. This is my favorite song..."
Me: "Uh huh. I thought so."
This is one of those songs that I crank up and sing at the top of my lungs and remember the days of couple skating at the roller rink....
I'll Be Over You by Toto, circa 1986
(and remember Michael McDonald has a teensy cameo in the song!)
Hard Habit to Break by Chicago, 1984
Ok, this one I'm REALLY embarrassed to love...but I do. I know all the words and it's another one I will turn way up and sing along to (but only if no one's around and the car's windows are rolled up). This is another one that The Hubs would say "turn this crap off." I totally disagree with him -- I think Richard Marx is a brilliant song writer. Just sayin!
Now and Forever by Richard Marx, 1994
And to finish off the night, I'd like to add another "man with a mullet" tune. But one of my favorite artists I'm embarrassed to love.
Meet Me Halfway by Kenny Loggins, 1987
