  1. Rare Photo of the (Ahem) Week?

    I finally got all of the photos restored to the "Rare Photo of the Week" Forum. It was a lot of work—and I can't imagine it being meaningful to anyone but a handful of fans who still visit—but something inside me still wants to keep EC.com up and running. I also added a new photo. The first new one in about two years! 😳 Bernie
  2. Long window of brilliance

    "Hell Yeah" was my favorite track from 12 Songs. Bernie
  3. Happy Birthday, Eric!

    August 11th is Eric's Birthday...so Happy Birthday, Boss! Hard to believe that EricCarmen.com is still chugging away 21 years after it started. We've logged in an incredible 2.8 million visitors over those two decades. Thanks for letting us share the remakes of "Top Down Summer" and "I Could Really Love You," Eric. Just in time...as there's still a whole month of Summer left! All good thoughts to you on your special day! Bernie
  4. American Bandstand - 1978

    Here are a couple of RARE photos of Eric's appearance on American Bandstand on December 16, 1978. Eric was interviewed by host Dick Clark and sang "Baby, I Need Your Lovin'" and "Change of Heart." Bernie
  5. Top Down Summer (2018)

    Can I keep a secret, or what? http://www.ericcarmen.com/music-topdownsummer.html Bernie
  6. Eric's solo rankings

    Oops. I mistakenly starred "Lost In The Shuffle," which is not one of my faves. I corrected it. Bernie
  7. Eric's solo rankings

    I decided to try a more scientific poll. I don't think I'd actually change the order of my list (I just love some of the songs so much, that quantity doesn't always beat quality), but the results were interesting: BOATS AGAINST THE CURRENT (7 out of 8) 88% * Boats Against The Current * Marathon Man * Nowhere To Hide Take It Or Leave It * Love Is All That Matters * She Did It * I Think I Found Myself * Run Away ERIC CARMEN (ARISTA) (8 out of 10) 80% * Sunrise * That's Rock'n Roll * Never Gonna Fall In Love Again * All By Myself * Last Night * My Girl Great Expectations * Everything * No Hard Feelings On Broadway TONIGHT YOU'RE MINE (6 out of 8) 75% * It Hurts Too Much Lost In The Shuffle * All For Love * Tonight You're Mine * Sleep With Me * Inside Story * Foolin' Myself You Need Some Lovin' CHANGE OF HEART (6 out of 9) 67% * Desperate Fools Overture Haven't We Come A Long Way End Of The World * Heaven Can Wait Baby I Need Your Lovin' * Change Of Heart * Hey Deanie * Someday * Desperate Fools WINTER DREAMS (6 out of 11) 54% * I Was Born To Love You * Someone That You Loved Before Everytime I Make Love To You Cartoon World * Almost Paradise * Top Down Summer Isn't It Romantic I Could Really Love You Caroline, No * I Wanna Take Forever Tonight * Walk Away Renee ERIC CARMEN (GEFFEN) (5 out of 10) 50% * I Wanna Hear It From Your Lips * I'm Through With Love American As Apple Pie Living Without Your Love Come Back To My Love * She Remembered You Took Me All The Way * Maybe My Baby Spotlight * The Way We Used To Be I know a lot of people will object to me not starring some of the fan favorites like "Cartoon World," "Isn't It Romantic" or "American As Apple Pie," but those tunes never made my Top EC songs list.

  8. The Rubinoos w/Jim Bonfanti

    Teresa and I had company this weekend. We did all of the things good friends usually do, have a cook-out, sit by the pool, go out to dinner...oh, and watch one of them kick ass playing drums on a song he originally played drums on for one of the most awesomest power pop bands around! Yeah, just another weekend. 😎 Bernie
