  1. Frankie Valli

    I bought this album simply because I saw Eric's name on the back in the store. Pretty good album, though.
  2. Frankie Valli

    I enjoy both "Oh What A Night" and obviously, "All BY Myself', but let's be honest, ABM is still getting covered and airplay forty years later and I haven't hear anyone cover "OWAN"
  3. If Wally is up for it, I would definitely consider taking the drive to Ohio for this.
  4. I hear the influences in the songwriting and they definitely should have been the next great thing, but aside from their demos and a handful of later songs like "I Saw The Light" and "Nobody Knows" I don't hear when people say "I thought that was the Beatles". I always thought badfinger tried to sound like the Beatles, while Raspberries tried to write like them.
  5. Roxette Singer Died

    Very sad..."Must've Been Love" has deep significance for me, though I have to admit I was shocked to find out they did "The Look", always thought that was Prince and Sheena Easton.
  6. Crazy thoughts on Berries by Crawdaddy Simon

    Carly Simon>Simon Cowell>Simon Sez>Crawdaddy Simon
  7. Some fans rank Raspberries lps...

    1.Fresh 2.Side 3 3.Starting Over 4.Raspberries This would be my ranking, but I love them all! I have the first album ranked in fourth place yet it features three of my favorite songs.
  8. Double Fantasy

    I always thought Mariah Carey should have done either ABM or "Boats". I believe I once read she considered ABM, but Celine beat her to the punch. I think Mariah's career would have gone a better route in the 90's had she gone with either!
  9. Interesting Topic and Response

    I would say "GATW". Can't tell you how many times I went to bat for the band as a teenager and that song was always the one no one could come back at me with any negatives. You'd think I'd choose a Beatles song, but everybody likes the Beatles in some form (except hipsters who just like saying it along with no tv). I went to war for the Raspberries!
  10. Rip Taylor dies at 84

    Just saw him on a couple of Monkees episodes, including him being "Wizard Glick", a famous Monkee reference.
  11. A Great Piece on “She Loves You”

    Nice find! I would have loved to have seen Paul open with this on one of his tours. I think people would have gone crazy!
  12. Good Girls

    James, How many women do you feel have lost control of THEIR cars watching you walking down the street over the years?
  13. Good Girls

    I always said this song was a smash!
  14. Good Girls

    https://vimeo.com/video/318198303 My daughter just texted me to let me know that she was watching a show called "Good Girls" on Netflix. There is a scene in tonight‘s episode where a guy is driving and make me lose control comes on!
  15. Teddy Does Eric

    I have always been a huge fan of the singer Teddy Pendergrass but somehow this version snuck by me. I am in the process of watching the new showtime documentary about him called “if you don’t know me” and in the background I heard the piano Interlude done so I looked it up on YouTube and here you have it!
