The beast has finally awoken although she isn’t straying too far from the EZ-Boy.
And who can blame her?
Anyway, we’re moving onto the 3rd part of our “Home Sick from School” vinyl celebration this afternoon with – Gawd, I can’t even believe I’m typing this – ‘Vital Signs‘ by Survivor.
What can I say?
The kiddo also likes her cheesy 80’s rock n’ roll.
This is something we’ve been sitting on since August when we visited Vinyl Destination in Merrickville, Ontario along the way.
I bought this (click HERE) and she found this album.
I didn’t even know that Survivor had another album. But, believe it or not, this album is the bands 5th studio album and their first with vocalist Jimi Jamison. The album was their second most successful in the U.S., reaching #16 on the Billboard Album charts and being certified platinum by the RIAA.
And, low and behold, it also had some hits including ‘I Can’t Hold Back‘ (which, I definitely know but didn’t realize it was Survivor), ‘High on You‘, ‘The Search Is Over‘ (which was bettered only by the #2 placing of ‘Burning Heart‘ from the Rocky IV soundtrack a year later) and ‘First Night‘. Outside of the singles, the other songs on the album keep up with the band’s cheese-personified formula.
I can’t say I’m loving it too much and I most assuredly including it on my Shit List, but HRH sure is and, today, if it’s alleviating the headaches and tummy pains while I work, then so be it.
Suck it up I will.
