I just get off the road, for the 1st time in 3 years.   I figure I would whip up a little garlic sauce, have the tv running and happen to have it on VH1.  They are doing the 100 Greatest Songs of the 80s.  From 80 - 60 there are an incredible amount of music that, well wasn't memorable.  If Heat of the Moment and Only Time Will Tell does not make this list then VH-1 must be a crack smoking community.

Let's put it this way.

Billboard or any Top chart magazines or TV channels don't know great music if it was forced down there throat.

All they care about is rich dingy broads who can't sing nor play an instrument.

I'm sick of these dingys like Paris & Britney.
I don't even watch those tabloid shows cause thats all they seem to talk about.

Just be HAPPY That ASIA is Here with You,who cares what those idiots think.

  MK,


I don't think I want to click on that link because I just love that song in spite of its blue mood.

It is all good.  The main Stuck In The 80's host Steve Spears is an ASIA fanatic and he interviewed CP right before the band landed in FL for the start of their Summer tour.  They do not insult ASIA or the song at all, it is all good, though Spears does give some wrong info about the forthcoming tour.
