Let’s spend a couple days on Reid’s greatest claim to fame so far, as the scene-stealing, adorable lunkhead with a heart of gold Dylan on Modern Family. Who can forget his epic, romantic love song, “In The Moonlight (Do Me)”


Three years ago I presented my personal favorite Briefs list, The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s, and because if there’s one thing Hollywood has taught us, it’s that sequels and reboots and remakes are ALWAYS better then the original, we’re going to the well again with The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s Part 2: The Even More Forgotten

We’ll be spotlighting 100 more of the greatest minor hits of the decade, the songs you don’t hear on any 80’s nostalgia show. Songs that missed the top ten, or top twenty … or top forty. Hopefully these forgotten gems may ring a long dormant bell, or for younger readers, provide a pop music history lesson.

At #60 is “Love Will Show Us How” by Christine McVie

Christine-McVie-Love-Will-Show-Us-456962

Christine was sometimes overshadowed by whatserface in Fleetwood Mac, but her 1984 self-titled solo album was one of the great hidden treasures of the decade, filled with pop gems. “Got A Hold On Me” hit the top ten, but the second single “Love Will Show Us How” should have done much better, peaking at #30 in June 1984.

I remember the video well, it was one of the first I saw that had TALKING in it. And Paul Bartel!

 


Congrats to jazz and matth, who guessed that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Rambo: First Blood Part II. Actually, neither of you were technically correct, because neither “Rambo” or “Rambo: First Blood” is the full title, but this scene pretty much represents the entire series.
