Picture A Day - Day 12
I have to confess that I’m a big sap when it comes to the love songs of the 1980s and 90s. You know the ones: Cant Fight This Feeling Anymore by REO, I Just Fall In Love Again by Anne Murray, When He Shines by Sheena Easton. I love ‘em, I love ‘em, and they always bring me to tears and fill me with a delicious, temporary melancholia.
I never bought any of the albums these songs are on, or anything by these artists, but I loved the "soft rock" stations we used to get back then. When I was a performer singer-songwriter, this genre of music was called MOR: Middle-of-the-Road. I even wrote a lot of songs in this style. I swear these love ballads release infatuation endorphins into the brain.
As much as I love real Rock (I could listen to Zeppelin's Dazed and Confused all damned day), I equally love MOR.
