They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To

This song from 1987 hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. in addition to being a Top 20 smash in his native England and in Australia. This is when the singer was at his best. After legal mishaps and political controversies, it is too bad he may never have that same mainstream worldwide success again.

In Comparison, Plain Janes are Hotter than Average Joes

This track went to #1 on one chart, that chart being Billboard’s Hot Dance Singles Sales. The song made no impact on any other chart, however, the tune’s been used as background music for several TV programs. Some criticize the singer because she doesn’t have the genetic structure of a model, but hey, she’s talented, in good shape, and dresses well. I’ve seen regular looking male singers and this lady is miles sharper in appearance.
