Corny Stuff That Is Actually Really Good

A song that tells a story worthy of the scrapper birds thread. Something I really like about this one is the way Dolly Parton phrases the lyrics with pauses in some places you wouldn't quite expect but which add to the meaning.

A bold choice for sure. They could both sing, no doubt about that.

Thing is, Liberace was actually a really good piano player.

XYY's interest was more about Liberace's bouffant hair styling than the music.

Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart.

Meatloaf would have been better though if he'd got the chance.

Edited to add:  Bonus points for the bizarre video by the same mental that did Duran Duran's "Wild Boys"

Dolly is a fantastic songwriter. She wrote I will always love you, and Elvis wanted the song, but she would not sign over half the rights. Good decision in the end.

I didn't know that, fascinating (I assumed she was covering it).

It sounds like a relationship breakup. It's about him losing his father.

 

That’s not corny, it’s a classic! Great piece of guitar playing and a big hit for a Boy George as a cover IIRC.

Not so much corny more morbid but still it`s a great tune and based on a true story apparently

Pat Friday singing On The Sunny Side of the Street. She worked with Glen Miller, did song voice overs for Hollywood actresses who could not hold a tune and recorded the original version of “At Last”. Could have had a big career but gave it up to get married. She claimed the part of her job she liked best was singing for US Troops in World War 2. So much more talent than the useless wannabes we get now most of whose only gift is the ability to murder great tunes.
