  1. I saw Air Supple in concert last summer and swooned.

    “Here I am, the one that you looooveeee!!

  2. Holy History! Does that bring back some memories!

    Word.

  3. Lily says:

    Ah, the memories. Love them!

  4. Tam says:

    Wow, blast from the past.

  5. Jenre says:

    Nope. Never heard of these guys or this song. They can't be/have been very popular in the UK.

    I'm wondering who the next two are. Do you count the ozzies who have sold out, moved to the UK and started lucrative music careers with Stock, Aiken and Waterman?

  6. nichem says:

    Oh good, someone I've heard of. 😛

    Aww, I used to love Air Supply. Umm, I may even have that CD on my ipod.

  7. Tracy says:

    Ah Air Supply. They were fine at the time but I'm REALLY glad they didn't last. lol

  8. Ingrid says:

    I am afraid this one hasn't reached the shores of NL either.

  9. Mariana says:

    LOVE that song! My sister and I break out into song occasionally… for that one we always do the arm wave 😉

  10. C. F. says:

    These
    songs
    just
    aren't
    doing
    it.

  11. When do we get the real classics, like N'Sync, Backstreet Boys and Menudo?

  12. Jenre: Gasp! Never heard of Air Supply?? Biggest duo of sappy 80's love songs. Their greatest hits album is a must buy!

  13. Kris says:

    Katiebabs chook: Those boys are sexeeeeee.

    Wren: LOL. Now you're beginning to see how much fun I had listening to DJ K's choices.

    Yo.

    Lily: Glad you're enjoying them, Lily. 🙂

  14. Kris says:

    Tam: I know, right. *g*

    Jen: What Katiebabs chook said.

    “Do you count the ozzies who have sold out, moved to the UK and started lucrative music careers with Stock, Aiken and Waterman?”

    Gee, Jen. I wonder to whom you are referring.

    Richelle: HA!

  15. Kris says:

    Tracy: Go soft cock. I mean, rock.

    Ingrid: You really missed out, Ingrid. You might recognise some of the songs if you look on youtube. They had hit after hit in the late 70s/early 80s.

    Mariana: LOL.

    “… for that one we always do the arm wave ;)”

    Who doesn't. 😉

  16. Kris says:

    Castanet: You're not fooling anyone. We all know that you were one of those girls with the blonde big hair, who were swaying all star eyed at these sexy boys. Don't try to deny it.

    Katiebabs chook: Ozzie classics, hun. Ozzie.

    Also, I think I'd rather kill myself.

  17. Wait, Ozzie? isn't Air Supply the complete opposite of Ozzie?

  18. Kris says:

    Nup. They were Australian.

  19. Eyre says:

    I can't like Air Supply because they make me think of my worthless brother-in-law. He loves them.

    Why don't you play some Journey or REO Speedwagon? Now those are some bands for romance reading!

  20. Jenre says:

    Their greatest hits album is a must buy

    Erm, I think I'll pass on that one.

  21. Chris says:

    One I actually know!

  22. Kris says:

    Eyre: See, here's the thing. I know you can read and stuff SO WHY DON'T YOU GET THE BIT ABOUT OZZIE (AKA AUSSIE AKA AUSTRALIAN AKA DOWN UNDER) CLASSIC LOVE SONGS!

    Geezus.

    Jenre: Wuss. 😛

    Chris: “One I actually know!”

    And like? Maybe??

  23. Chris says:

    I tend to like most 80s songs better when they're covered by later artists… strangely, I have no covers of Air Supply.

  24. Eyre says:

    Kris, I can read, but I don't want to get that part! I, like my students, am being obtuse on purpose so that hopefully in your frustration you will post some music THAT IS ACTUALLY GOOD!

    Chris, there's a reason you don't see covers of Air Supply songs.

    Veri word–advers

    I am advers to Air Supply. Where the hell is Journey?

  25. Kaetrin says:

    Okay I'm back on board now. Although I think Love and Other Bruises is a better song than The One that I Love, there is NO bagging the Supply!

  26. Amora says:

    Nice. Haven't heard that in forever. 🙂

  27. hdsmith says:

    I know it was the early 80's but seriously, I have hair that curly and I know that they made conditioner then.

    I also have the greatest hits and I would have voted for All Out of Love or Making Love Out of Nothing at All.

    I think it was this type of music that made the whole 90's-Alanis Morisette-angry chick music happen- purely as a backlash.

    I am eagerly awaiting the Savage Garden entry for the great Ozzie love song list.

  28. C. F. says:

    How about the classic Australian queer love song?

    Kookaburra sits on an old gum tree,
    Merry, merry king of the bush is he.
    Laugh, kookaburra. Laugh, kookaburra.
    Gay your life must be.

    Okay, so maybe it's not a love song, but it's damned hot. A nekkid guy who's a “merry king of the bush” (heh, I get it) sitting “on a gum tree” (uh-huh, we know what that's a symbol for), laughing, because of his gay life. Plus, Keith Richard or Cliff Richard or Little Richard or somebody named Richard told me “kookaburra” is Aboriginal for “he of the insatiable carnal appetite who's hung like a whale.”

    Oh yeah, that song always did it for me. Catchy tune, too.

  29. orannia says:

    Not to be contrary, but I think I would have to say my favourite Air Supply song is Lost In Love.

    You've seen them in concert KB? WOW!

    DJ K – you rock!

  30. Eyre says:

    Okay, I guess that I can grudgingly admit that All Out of Love is not a bad sond.

  31. Ingrid says:

    Kris I was born late 70-ties. I don't know much about that period

  32. Juniper says:

    Have heard of Air Supply, but have never heard this one – sorry!

    If we don't get any Michael Hutchence, there's something seriously wrong with your taste!

  33. Kris says:

    Chris: I agree you are strange. 😛

    Eyre: “Okay, I guess that I can grudgingly admit that All Out of Love is not a bad sond.”

    Har. Har. Changed your mind. *g*

    Kaetrin: “… there is NO bagging the Supply”

    Word. 😀

  34. Kris says:

    Amora: I knew I could rely on you for good taste. 😉

    Heidi: “I think it was this type of music that made the whole 90's-Alanis Morisette-angry chick music happen- purely as a backlash.”

    LOL. You could be right there. Oh, and you'll be waiting a long time for that Savage Garden song so you better prepare yourself. Just sayin'.

    Castanet: Please go back on your meds. I'm begging you.

  35. Kris says:

    Orannia: *sigh* Everyone's a critic.

    Ingrid: No excuse! Air Supply are the Gods of Soft Cock. I mean, Rock.

    *gotta stop doing that*

    Juniper: “If we don't get any Michael Hutchence, there's something seriously wrong with your taste!”

    DJ K said it was too hard to choose just one so they will get their own Top 5. 🙂
