Eric’s worst album…


Recommended Posts

Let’s Pretend (sorry) that a friend of yours is sick of you waxing poetic about EC and finally relents and says to you, “Make me a CD of his stuff” and I’ll tell you what I think”…

What is the WORST ten songs that you could compile for your friend to reaffirm his conviction that “EC sucks”…

Don’t worry about the running order, just 10 lousy songs(there may be more than you think)…

1.) Everytime I Make Love To You

2.) I Could Really Love You

3.) Marathon Man

4.) Everything

5.) My Heart Stops

6.) Lost In The Shuffle

7.) You Need Lovin’

8.) Reason To Try

9.) Spotlight

10.) As Long As We Got Each Other

I realize that there are a few on this list that he didn’t write, but man o man, I hope my “friend” never hears  them…

Haha.

You dislike Marathon Man so much that you put it on your list TWICE?!?

I love that song!

You're gonna have to come up with another to fill the void. My list is filled with additional tunes to skip when playing an Eric Carmen "Marathon." Plenty to choose from.

The only 3 I could bring myself to write down are: "You need some lovin", "Almost Paradise" and "Tonight you're mine". The worst of the rest of the catalog are at least good songs.

P.S. one day Lew will have to answer to his God for listing "Everything". : )

Gosh, Doreen chose "Runaway" AND "Cartoon World". But at least, as opposed to Lew, she had the guts to post Runaway, and didn't post "Everything".

But still, even the gulag is too good for her. Better she be banished off to "Lew's Lair".  

Heh. You guys deserve each other.   : )

Interesting to read everyone's responses once they let their hair down. Normally there is nothing but praise for Eric's songs- as it should be- he's a great songwriter who has more quality songs per album than 99% of the artists out there. For me, he has practically written the soundtrack of my life. To see so many of his songs make different people's 'bad' album is a little disconcerting. What I think is even more interesting is that I 'assumed' that because we all liked Eric's music our taste in songs would be very similar with regards to Eric's music, but that is obviously not the case. Some of the songs on a few of your lists have been an eye-opener. Carry on...

PS- if Eric were still posting here, I doubt this thread would have gotten off the ground. Can I get an Amen?!?

MM and She Remembered are both also on my border list, on my least fave EC songs list, but given the greatness and consistency of his catalog, that certainly doesn´t mean they are bad songs, ...in fact they are both, overall, good songs, so I will not list them here.
