Has Lou Gramm done a Geico commercial? Didn't think so.

Eddie Money wining 2:1 over Double Vision is a pile of shit.

didn't Eddie Money have a stroke? that should disqualify him right then and there.

back in the early 90's, there was a commercial for Carl's Jr featuring Eddie Money + band. they were having a severe bout of writer's block and then, someone takes a bite of a burger and ketchup splatters against sheet music IN THE FORM OF A SINGLE EIGHTH NOTE WHICH COMPLETES THE MUCH-HARANGUED-OVER-SOON-TO-BE-POP-HIT. of course the song the ketchup helps write is "Take Me Home Tonight", a song that, by 1993 or so, would have been 60 years old.

if that song wins this round, I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

Eddie Money only had one good song and this aint it. It isn't even a love to hate. Double Vision!

@7 "Baby Hold On"? "Two Tickets To Paradise"? "Think I'm In Love"? "Shakin'"?

Eddie Money planned to have some studio backup singer do the "be my little baby" line after the Ronnie Spector reference. But then a producer said, "hey, why don't we get the real deal?" And so it is Ronnie Spector singing that line in the song.

"Take Me Home Tonight" makes me want to climb up a bell tower with an assault rifle.

Wow, what a bunch of grouches we have here. "Take Me Home Tonight" is pure gold. There is that chorus towards the end when the percussion drops out and it's just the vocals over the guitars, and then the drums come pounding back in. It gets me pumped up every time.

I was never able to figure out that line! Not that I tried too hard. But seriously, all these years I've always just assumed my best guess, which is nothing close to "just like Ronnie sang."

I voted for the one I think is the worst because all classic rock is terrible, therefore the worst one is the better classic rock song. It made sense to me at the time.

Since we are figuring out difficult to understand 80's lyrics, can someone provide some clarity on that "carry a lazer" song by Mister Mister?

And just for the record, Eddie Money's true classic is "I Wanna Go Back". I mean come on, that song drips with bittersweet nostalgia, at least when you are very drunk it does.
