  1. Gone too soon...What can i say?...Eric Carmen's music spoke to me as i was coming of age...and i never forgot what that meant to me...This past Sunday night i was watching The Raspberries "Go All The Way" from the reunion concert...I was wondering if they'd ever do it again...Sadly now i know the answer...My condolences to his family and to all his friends here.

  2. It's brilliant!...strong vocals on a soaring melody and some amazing harmonies...This is for REAL!...I love the chords in the melody...it reminds just a little of my EC favorite "Let's Pretend"....This song is not an easy song to sing...So kudos to Eric Carmen for keeping his voice in shape...Your age is only a number....and this song proves it...64 must be the new 24!

  3. I suspect some of this extra interest in Go All The Way is because of the DVD/Blue Ray release of Dark Shadows...After hearing the cover by The Killers play over the end credits of the film a lot of people had to be wanting more of it...btw...the cover is so true to the original it had me wondering who was who on that track!

    I'm late to this party as i was on hiatus out in the ether...glad i dropped in for a look.

  5. he's older than he was

    but we still love him just because

    he gave us all a place to go

    all us people in the know

    he's an Eric Carmen fan

    like a member of the band

    he's a hit with all the lasses

    with his nutritious milk mustaches

    and if you don't know by now

    the man's an adman for the cows

    it's not too late nor is it early

    for the man who we call Bernie


  6. I think Eric deserves the honor...not only because of the large catalog of timeless classics that he has written...But also because he has inspired others to write better quality songs...When he went solo he raised the bar for pop music compositions...He wrote songs that found an audience when they were first released...and continue to appeal to new generations of music fans...That's the work of a hall of famer to me.

  7. The cold spell has finally broken in Southern Illinois...We finally made it past freezing yesterday...the first time it's been that warm since just before Christmas.

    Honestly i like real winter weather...and it's been absent in our area for the past 3 or 4 years...Last year the NWS issued a Tornado Watch for us just after Christmas...And we had several really intense thunderstorms in January...With the exception of a few really cold days...winters just haven't been that cold around here...It's been more like Georgia than Illinois...The frigid air we had the past couple of weeks is the real winter weather i've been craving...
