Today is the 31st anniversary of the very first CD I ever purchased. That is the self-titled debut (one of only two) from Bad English. I purchased it, along with my first ever CD player at a Wal-Mart in Orlando, Florida. It was the 26th of December and my family, including my brother, and my girlfriend at the time took two vehicles down and spent a week in Walt Disney World. Par for the course with my family, at the time, we didn’t have a “plan.” It’s the worst-ever time to go to Disney (the week between Christmas and New Year’s) and we had no reservations. We drove around until my dad was able to find a cheap motel that had two rooms next to each other. The next day, I went into a Peaches and purchased KISS’ Music From ‘The Elder’ and Hotter Than Hell. That started a good collection.
Anywhat! Bad English was a supergroup. Basically a mix of The Babys and Journey with Deen Castronovo and Ricky Phillps filling out the band. I liked it. It was sugary pop rock and I’m okay with that. There were a few really good songs on there. This one, written by Diane Warren (who wrote/co-wrote a lot of music in this era) was the biggest hit for the band and you can still hear it often on 80s radio channels. This is a decent version of it, too! Enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
