“I Can’t Fight This Feeling” – REO Speedwagon.  Ok, next time I hear this song; I am ripping the radio out of my car. Growing up in the 80’s, this song was so over-played. And the video – there were a lot of sappy vids in the 80’s, but this one wasn’t just cheese, it was an entire cheese dept.

I used to work at cool Deli in DenverTechCenter, and we would get riders from the touring bands that came into, at the time, Fiddlers Green. Well here comes REO Speedwagons … No B.S., it was a 6 page rider that was truly unbelievable. Stuff like – 1 gallon of chicken soup with only 2 stalks of celery, an 18” pepperoni pizza with 28 pepperonis, and get this – red carpet from their trailer to the stage. 75 yards of it. And the topper – their hotel rooms had to be carpeted red.

Now you know why I hate this song and for that matter, that band.  Stay humble musicians! It will get you much farther and certainly more love and respect!
