Raspberries vs Cheap Trick…

Too much of the "Raspberries / Eric aren't COOL enough" crap. And on top of that, the guys that are too macho to possibly like a ballad or a song with too good of a melody. 

I'll choose the Raspberries over Cheap Trick every time.  But I'm one of those "wussie girls", so there's that.  After all of these years, my mood elevates and I can't wipe the smile off of my face whenever I listen to the Raspberries.  Beautiful, beautiful harmonies and lyrics.

I think that's probably one of the very things that bugged Wally too. At some point, he wanted Raspberries to be Rapberries and stop trying to sound like other bands or doing cover material. I can kinda see the argument of the cover songs, but their original material stood alone, whether or not it was a tribute to another bands sound.

Great find…RCT…

Shucks...just an unexpected tidbit I came across while catching up on some light rock & roll reading in a waiting room.


C'mon Susie, don't be like Dina. (One of the few film characters I share a name with...and played by Spruce Bringsteen's sista!)

Razz music means more to me emotionally too, but I hear many merits in the Cheap Trick catalog. Fave track that to me sounds quite Berries-esque: "I Can't Make It Alone."
