"Reason To Try"

Recommended Posts

Just for the record and according to the credits, Eric didn't write the song.

Sorry guys for bringing up this old un-wanted memory.

Still though, compared to some of the other stuff that was coming out at the time, I've heard worse.

I was talking to a friend of mine and he asked me if I would have bought it if it was recorded by someone other than Eric...the answer of course was no.

Any recording that had Eric's involvement found its way into my house.

Sorry!

That's the ONLY reason I bought the album - yes the album, not the single. As bad as the song is, it does have some stellar musicians - Michael Lloyd, Michael Fisher, Oren Waters, Jim Haas, and from Venice - Mark and Kipp Lennon.

The songwriters Jon Lind and Phil Gladston, have had success with other songs, especially "Save The Best For Last" by Vanessa Williams, and "Crazy For You" by Madonna.

That song really sucks.

I commented on another thread (we were discussing Hungry Eyes) that I hoped you got paid a lot of $ for singing that thing! I have that Japanese CD of Tonight You're Mine with the 8 extra tracks; I always skip that one song. I actually have that 45 with the picture sleeve; like Jay, the only reason I bought it is because Eric Carmen was associated with it (and the flipside is awesome!).
