Favorite Eric Carmen Album

Favorite Eric Carmen Song


  1. Hi Eric, I don't know much about the technical parts of music, I don't know much about keys, reading music and all that stuff, I just know what I like. So, I'd like to ask about the song, "High Cost of Loving." I haven't seen much talk around here, so I'm probably way off base, but that sounds like a very, very difficult song to sing. The way you start singing low and then go high on the "High Cost" parts just sounds so difficult. I really appreciate that range and I doubt there are very many artists that can pull it off. Could you comment on that song? Is it as tricky as I think? Thank you. Scott
  2. You admire Brian Wilson and wrote in his style. What was it in his arrangements that inspired you?
  3. Eric: I have heard the Raspberries version of Locomotion/Be My Baby countless times. I also have heard the almost legendary tale how Todd Rundgen was at the Carnegie Hall concert, heard the Berries version and sold Grand Funk on covering the song and the rest is music history. My question is did the Raspberries ever considering covering the tune as a possible single or were you all more concentrated on your own material? Steve-O
  4. Diane has written a lot of great songs, but just curious if the has ever released anything on her own? I've heard Bernie Taupin's solo stuff, and have seen Irving Berlin sing in a movie. Also heard Beth Nielsen Chapman's demos on a radio special-- actually has a lot more life to them than most of the garbage you hear on the radio. What was interesting about the Nielsen-Chapman show was that she intended "This Kiss" for Paula Abdul, originally, and not Faith Hill. It would be interesting to hear Diane Warren's take on her own stuff....
  5. Eric: I would like to know when did you meet singer Michael Stanley for the first time? What about singer Dwight Twilley? Have you seen the Saturday morning show "The Bugaloos" (Sid & Marty Krofft) show from the early 70's?? Matt
  6. Here is a question for Eric...Have you written any songs lately that you are especially proud of that you would like to tell us about?...And if so...Who are they intended for...You...The Raspberries...or someone else?
