I am Eric's age, but never really heard a lot of his music.  I went to parochial school, and the good sisters kept the lust driven "Raspberries" off of our approved listening lists.  Last year, after enduring a few horrible years, I first heard "Brand New Year". As Roberta Flack once said "he was singing my life with his words".  Since then I have listened to every Raspberries song I can get, and am now downloading every Eric Carmen song from iTunes.  I am so glad that I found the musical score to my entire life.

OMG, I just hear "Desperate Fools" for the first time. In the 2000's I took what should have been a dream job for me in Miami, far from Boston, MA,  my home.  As it tuned out "the games that I played were not worth what I paid"  I went from the height of my profession to the lowest depths, I had no idea people could lie so easily.  When I realized that I was beginning to be what they wanted me to be, I left for California for a few years.  I finally became myself again and returned to my profession.  I so wished I had this song back then, what an incredible songwriter/artist.  Eric Carmen has touched all the days of my life, without me even knowing.

Great you found the path back to yourself.  Eric has a way of speaking to all of us here directly through his music.   Very cool, right?  ?
