That glop was in the top ten for worst song ever. He should have gotten 10 to life for that alone. What's on the flip side? Barry Manilow?

Maybe the song was sappy & gloppy, but what a hit it was for Debby Boone back in 1977. The late Casey Cisyk did a terrific version of the song as well. Yeah Joe Brooks lit up their lives. Yeah on his way to a jail sentence possibly.

originally performed and written, i believe, by America, my first concert. Burton Cummings opened for them. He's the lead singer from the Guess Who but he had a 'hit' called, "stand tall, don't you fall". ugh!

I just heard a radio promo for REO Speedwagon coming to the Mid Hudson Civic Center. You know you've sunk to new lows when you resort to playing the Mid Husdon Civic Center.
