Now you're getting it.
I also really like 'Candy' - wouldn't mention it though unless asked.

Eddie Rabbitt—"I Love the Rainy Night"
One of my favorite songs when I was a little Zoon. I still like it, probably mostly out of nostalgia, but I have to admit it is pretty catchy.

How did you get into that song? I don't remember ever hearing it but it must have been popular. I looked it up and saw that it was a hit in the early 80s and is on the 'GTA: San Andreas' soundtrack. I heard the radio all the time in 80-81 and I played that video game for many many hours, but still don't recall the song.

It was really popular. I knew it from the radio I guess, though we're talking about some of my earliest memories here so details are sketchy. I also think my brother may have owned it on tape because he used to threaten me with not playing it any more if I didn't leave him alone. Or maybe he was just fucking with me because I was three or four and didn't understand how radios worked.

Yeah, I didn't have control of the radio either at the time. And no older siblings so it was all my parents which meant that I heard Baroque and Classical (dad) and Disco (mom). Any pop music that didn't somehow fit in with those styles wasn't played much. I think my mom, as a child, was taught that Elvis was evil (Michael Jackson and Madonna were a-ok, though) so it makes sense that the station was changed if Eddie Rabbitt was playing.

My dad played the **** out of that record and Johnny Paycheck for some reason. My favorite of his tunes was always the Billy Joel records. Its still rock n roll to me was huge at that time also. I preferred it over the Endless Love and bull**** my sister was into.

I still get all misty eyed when I listen to Bob Seger's "Against The Wind" album. Some great tracks in there, and after looking at the wiki, I find that Glen Frey sung harmony, and Dr John played keys on it. Cool.

Thats a great album. Cliche 70's rock but I can't deny my love for it. Seger has that raspy voice that just sounds like a man ready to kick someones ass.

I thought his voice was just raspy from running against the wind, or perhaps from smoking the day's last cigarette.
