Not at all! One man's meat, etc. etc.

I have my own "guilty pleasures", but must confess this track isn't one of them.

I of course recognize the cheesy nature especially given the catalog of Perry Como, but I think there is something about him that can almost make it "do no harm" in my mind, which probably carries over to a lot of other folks opinions of other groups.

My dad was a WWII vet and I was the youngest of all my siblings. I grew up listening to my dad's music and not appreciating it at the time, but since the 17 years since he's passed (and the few years since my mom passed), I find myself really enjoying Glenn Miller, Perry Como, Johnny Matthis, of course along with the obvious choices of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, etc. I could go on, but I'm surmising that my personal feeling could be paralleled with other peoples' feelings for other music, despite it being technically "good" or not.

In 1977 this group was nominated for five Grammy's and won two for this. It won Best Vocal Arrangement over "Bohemian Rhapsody".

There’s not a thing wrong with this song. Catchy pop, all synths with some good patches. Fat synth bass.

Rebuttals follow.





First "real" band I was ever in, that played in clubs with alcohol, was fronted by, and a vehicle for the recent Miss Brevard County, who won the prestigious crown on her looks and her singing this song, which we had to play ad nauseum. And nauseated I was!

I thought she was smokin' hot, but the Captain always bugged me. It seemed like his body was moving around, but his facial expression never changed, kind of like he was possessed by a nonchalant robot.

I was just excited about an all-synth pop song. I think it was the first. The only all-synth hit that preceded that was Gino Vannelli’s ‘People Gotta Move’ but that wasn’t a huge hit like this was. I really didn’t care about the Captain. Or Tennille. Although she was cute.

Wow, great live version. What a tight group....thanks for sharing. I remember hear this song in Jr. High and LOVING it. One of those tunes that just jumped out of the speakers. I always loved those groaning sounds they made before the chorus...

There's no way Rufus and Chaka and "crappy" can ever exist in the same thread!

Absolutely 100% correct... having this on a crappy song thread is just a ridiculous troll. Let's get back to the true crappy songs! cool

Agreed. And it should be judged by the people who listen to and play the music of that era.

And then there are cringe-worthy performances of great songs, like this one from Bobby Darin singing Sail Away as a patriotic hymn to America. Check out 2:05. You know what I’m talkin’ about.

Wow. I'm almost speechless. Missing the point of the song much? Tone deaf to the lyrics? Painful, astoundingly bad idea.

...though no one mentioned that "Tell Me Something Good" was written by Stevie Wonder. (And "Love Will Keep Us Together" by Neil Sedaka.)
