And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Anthony Callea

Anthony proved he was no one hit wonder in Australia when his second single “The Rain” shot to the top of the charts in March 2005 and spent two weeks at #1.

“The Rain” was a double a-side with his remake of “Bridge Over Troubled Waters,” which he performed on Australian Idol.


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 #50 is “I’d Do It All Again” by Sam Harris

Out singer Sam Harris was the first Star Search Grand Champion in 1983, and was immediately signed by Motown, releasing his first album in 1984, which included his only top 40 single “Sugar Don’t Bite.” His 1986 followup “I’d Do It All Again” should have been a bigger hit, but peaked at #52 in March, and would be his last entry on the Hot 100.
