    They're a UK band, and I think they may have been a one hit wonder over here. T'Pau is a character in Star Trek, and I remember William Shatner mentioning them in the VH1 100 one hit wonder show.

    Can you tell I'm a nerd? :sweat: :anime:

    Awesome song, by an awesome singer. He was a country singer, who pretty much started the whole pop-crossover phenomenon.

    Cool story: My dad met him in 1998, and got me his autograph. Sadly, Eddie died of cancer just a few months later :(

    UK- "The Power Of Love" Jennifer Rush
    US- "Part-time Lover" Stevie Wonder
    AUS- "I Got You Babe" UB40 with Chrissie Hynde

    I've definitely heard "Part-time Lover", and I'm gonna presume "I Got You Babe" is a remake of the Sonny and Cher standard. Have no idea about the first one though.

    There was a country music cover of this, believe it or not. By a one-hit wonder named Robin Lee who had a couple albums on Atlantic, but she's been a songwriter for years, as has her husband, Trey Bruce.

    I was born 10 March 1987, so #1 that week (March 7) on the Hot 100 was "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. I don't know any Bon Jovi songs at all besides his three releases to country radio (the Jennifer Nettles version of "Who Says You Can't Go Home", "(You Want to) Make a Memory" and "Till We Ain't Strangers Anymore" with LeAnn Rimes). March 14 was "Jacob's Ladder" by Huey Lewis & the News, whose catalog I am entirely unfamiliar with outside Garth Brooks' limp cover of "Workin' for a Livin'". There oughta be a law against covers that are duets with the original artist, because most of them suck.

    #1 on March 7, 1987 on the country charts was "Morning Ride" by Lee Greenwood. I know several Lee Greenwood songs (yes, he had much, much more than just "God Bless the USA", which isn't even among his several #1's), but I don't know this one. #1 the next week was "Baby's Got a New Baby" by Schuyler, Knobloch & Overstreet (SKO), which I do know. It was their only #1, although Overstreet had another #1 in 1990.

    Snappy little song. Eddie's a country pop singer, had a buttload of #1's in the 70s and 80s, last Top 40 country hit was in 1990 if I'm not mistaken. "I Love a Rainy Night" if I'm not mistaken, this is the only song to top the country, Hot 100 and AC charts. His "Every Which Way but Loose" from the movie of the same name was once the highest debuting country song ever at #18, a record which has been tied once and broken thrice. Given that we've had a country song debut at #1 (which is quite a feat for an airplay-only chart), I don't see the record being broken anytime soon.

    Except Bon Jovi, I don't know any of those songs. I do know that the reunification of Germany happened on the day I was born, as well...

    I didn't care for Lost Highway that much. It started off well, but quickly got way too country for my tastes. I like country, but it had too much of an influence on that album. The best of Bon Jovi's discography is much better, especially their '80s stuff and 2005's Have A Nice Day.

    Huey and Garth are my two most favorites, so I was absolutely thrilled when I read that they were pairing up for a duet. It was a dream duet that I thought I'd never see, and I thought it was great.

    What I don't particularly care for is when a current artist does a "cut-and-paste" duet with a deceased artist. There's just a bit of oddness to it. The worst one I've heard is "When You Say Nothing At All" by Alison Krauss and Keith Whitley, as the audio quality of Whitley's lyrics are so drastically different it completely destroys it. Krauss' solo version, however, is fantastic.

    That was cut and pasted by a DJ in Dallas if I'm not mistaken, so thankfully it was never official. Whitley's and Krauss' versions are great separately, but together... eh.
