For me, hearing Sowing The Seeds of Love for the first time was one of those "What the hell???" moments.  Because it was so out there from Tears For Fears' previous songs on the radio.  It took a while for me to like the song, actually.   Of course my dirty little teenage mind couldn't help but to snicker at the song title.

I also miss Tears for Fears. STSOL is a very Beatles-esque song, but there is something about Head over Heels that gets me every time. I think the cover of It's My Life is by Gwen Stefani. She does a pretty good job, but I agree that the original is stellar.

On the Beatles, Julian Lennon had an eerily sounding hit in Too Late for Goodbye. He sounded just like a younger version of his father. Hopefully he has overcome his demons.

I agree, not only did he SOUND like his Dad, he LOOKS very much like him too. THAT has got to be a spooky thing even for him. The likeness is uncanny! I think Julian had great talent, I wonder where he went?

Wow!  Yeah and I have that Julian Lennon album on vinyl!  Man, I wish I had a turntable right now.

His demon was Yoko.
I saw an interview with him some years ago and he isn't very nice about the Yoko subject.

I think he called her something like the queen of all Beeches.

Oh well I wish him luck,he sings great like his dad John Lennon,I just think he doesn't get credit where credit is due.

Has there ever been a child of a "mega-famous" musician that has achieved the same type of successes as their famous mother or their famous father?  I cannot think of one.  If I am wrong, hopefully someone will set me straight.

Good call, Paul.  I am not sure he will achieve the same legendary status as his father, but he has managed to keep his name out there pretty well throughout the years.  He is about to get another big boost when he performs in that Led Zepp reunion performance coming up.

Interesting question. I can think of a few that were marginally successful (on par with Julian) and like Julian all of them had famous fathers who had died young -- Jeff Buckley, Dweezil Zappa, and Gunnar and Matthew Nelson (One of which I swear I saw as I came off of Space Mountain a month ago. But I didn't want to ask which one he was. lol.)

How famous would Bonnie Raitt's dad be considered?

The only ones I can think of that might be a step up from those are the women in Wilson Phillips. Were they as big as their dads? No. But they did very well for a while in the 90's.


You see a lot more of this kind of thing in the acting world.

The Tex Ritter/John Ritter pair is interesting. Completely different fields and styles.

Confession: When I was six a friend of my dad's got tickets to the rodeo and back stages passes to see Tex. It's the only meet and greet I've ever done. He was a very nice man.
