80s Turd Of The Day: Loose

I tortured my child and her friend with this song in the car yesterday. Then at the stop light I danced in my seat like an aging drug-addled rocker until people in other cars looked at us. Ah, 80s channel -- my sweet revenge for hours of (S)Hits 1.

  1. Bwahahaha my daughter tortures me with that Sirius Hits channel as well.

    I absolutely draw the line at any hip-hoppy, rappy shit that goes on however. There was one crappy song a while back where the guy just repeats "I'm ridin' solo, ridin' solo" so I've been singing that around the house for awhile to torture her.

  6. Knee pads and a dance belt. That's a pretty bold fashion statement for a lead singer.

    Good tip on the song, Cary. I'm always looking for something new to embarrass my kids with. My disco moves in Kroger are wearing a bit thin.

  9. You know that vague feeling that something is missing, but you can't put your finger on it? It was there for LOTD and now I know why - no 80s Suck Rock of late.

    I am always in awe of how such bands that were like real rock bands with Strats, flailing drum Styx on a Bonham scale drum kit, thump-along bass etc can end up with such a glossy, thin and, well, sucky sound. The prominent synths, of course, but there must be something more...

    Add a seriously up himself sub-Freddie Mercury singer and the pretentious 'jazzy' solo bits and Saga had it in spades.

    Credit to Cary for showing no remorse at torturing the kid in front of the friend. Such is how character is built.

  10. First "Stay the Night", and now this. Cary, you have a talent for labeling some of my more favorite 80's songs as utter tripe. I'm not sure if that says more about me, or you.

  11. Now we know why you never hear of anyone saying, "I used to play in a band called SAGA."
