I'm not sure why but I had this song stuck in my head this morning so I went looking for a different version from the music video. I've always liked the song and think Rick is still adorable.

It's a level 5 earworm, and a flagship member of my "Known Allies of Mambo #5" playlist.  You don't even have to hear that song for it to suddenly be in your head.

 

So, I was never a huge fan of the hair metal bands even though they were thriving during my teen/college years.  There were songs I liked, and there were definitely videos I liked, but I don't remember spending money buying Poison albums for example.

However, heh, these days I've come to appreciate them for what they are.  I'll have my little Sonos system playing music while I'm working in the kitchen when Pandora will say "You look like you would like to hear a hair metal power ballad right now!" And then I hear the first few seconds of Skid Row fill the air, and me:

Beginning tomorrow (July 1, 2020), U2's permanent new SiriusXM radio station, U2X Radio, will launch at 3:00 p.m. ET on Channel 32 if there are any U2 fans here. I guess the limited channel from the summer of 2018 must have been a big hit.

I still rock out to that (and "Youth Gone Wild", but especially "18 and Life") whenever it comes up on my iPod.

I think the only song of Kim Wilde's I know is her cover of "You Keep Me Hangin' On", and that is my jam!  As soon as I saw her name, I had to pull it up online to listen to it (I have it on some '80s compilation CD).

I know that one and "Kids in America". I like her version of "You Keep Me Hangin' On", too :).

Oh, of course!  I don't particularly like "Kids in America", but it was quite the debut for her; I can't believe I forgot that one.

All the talk of Skid Row and no mention of their best (IMO!) song?

This has been driving me crazy, so I hope somebody can figure it out. At the end of this video, the guy is sitting on the couch & the girl comes in and sits down & he says something to her, & she answers. WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY SAYING????????? I've lost count of how many times I've watched it, & no matter how much I turn up the volume, I just can't understand what they're saying. I have no problem after that when she gets the text, but whatever it is they says before that baffles me. Can anybody understand them?

That embedded video played with the CC on, and according to it - which sounds correct to me (her line is clear without, his is difficult to decipher) - when she joins him on the couch, he asks, "What do you want to do tonight?" and she replies, "Honestly, I'm really tired."

THANK YOU. The CC wasn't on for me & I never realized I could turn it on or I would have. I've lost count how many times I've watched that part & could never figure it out.
