    Curiously not. Maybe it's considered passable? Or too obviously bad to be ironic? Low hanging fruit, perchance? :argue

    Somehow, fighting over the Osmonds strikes me as akin to having a brawl over whether the Baltimore Orioles or the Miami Marlins are the worst team in baseball.

    That's like saying death by hemlock is 99 percent better than death by lethal injection.

    That was so great I had to look for more of her work. Glad I did.

    I know I use this meme a lot but some times it's the only thing that truly expresses my reaction.

    I came here to post this. I'll give you another perspective with the video. I will admit, I played the grooves out of my 45 when I was a kid. Time has not been kind to this tune....

    It's funny that you chose this one as it was the one that I was thinking of.
    The real strange thing was that for a 5 year period (1978 on) their touring band director was a really superb blues guitarist John Marx. How he survived 5 years playing that crap night after night one wonders. The pay must have been good.

    Agree, a totally different time. I grew up in the 70’s and remember a lot of these (but not all). They, mostly, haven’t aged well but were popular at the time. As someone else mentioned, these were mainly Top 40 songs so no real deep cuts. I hate to think how today’s music will be judged in 30-40 years.

    I never understood Leo Sayer or his appeal.

    Manfred Mann's version of Blinded by the Light. And no, I'm not looking up a video. The farther way I can get from that POS, the better.

    It's hard to separate the music from the image. He's a hell of a songwriter and singer, especially when he's in his natural range. The falsetto can be offputting if you're not into that style. But the toilet-brush hairdo, the goofy mugging, the stringbean physique and the movements that look like a Fleischer Studios cartoon are...well, they served their purpose of giving him a memorable image but for some reason it's one that gets tiresome.
