    Tonic - The Way She Loves Me
    (couldn't find an actual video on YouTube, so I went with this one somebody put over scenes from X-Men. It's better than going with any of the horrible "covers" by people putting themselves on YouTube)

    :icon_huh: WTF is Der Kommissar??? I was 11 in 1982, and at that time I probably only listened to 1 album: AC/DC Back in Black.

    You guys are pullin' my leg with this Falco ****. :lol:

    Fer Kommissar was not a Falco hit.

    Falco did have two hits in the early 80's though, Jenny, or Jeanny.

    Herb Alpert was far more than a one-hit wonder. He and the Tijuana Brass did all sorts of instrumentals back in the '60s, the better-known ones were "The Lonely Bull", "Tijuana Taxi", "A Taste of Honey", and they even did "Tusk" in the '80s. :yes:

    Agreed, however the song I posted, IIRC that was the only song sung; I believe all the others were instrumentals...not that that would make any difference, I suppose. :no: :icon_shrug: :icon_huh: :icon_sad:

    Point taken, Toby. I never thought about it that way.

    :yes:

    "The Shoop Shoop Song" by Betty Everett (I think). Personally, I think Cher's remake of that tune was better than the original, and I almost NEVER like remakes of songs.:tup:
