We built this city on Michael McDonald

by

There are some people in this world who enjoy music under strict guidelines. It’s gotta be technical. The lyrics need to be unique. Whatever. I was lucky enough to be born to judge music by nothign else than its melodies and beats. If it sounds good, it’s good. That’s pretty much the extent of it. Michael McDonald is the butt of a lot of jokes, but that some would knock “I Keep Forgettin” is just beyond me. It’s a pop gem. Warren G had the foresight to see the crossover potential of that song. I wonder if crossover potential is a measure of a truly good pop song. It’s worth mentioning James Ingram and Kenny Loggins in the same paragraph.
