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 … Jon Polito
Closing out our week with Jon, he continues to be one of the most prolific actors in Hollywood, and recently won the Best Actor prize at the Hollywood Independent Film Festival for the short film Anti-Muse
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 #17 is “Forever Young” by Alphaville
Earlier on the list we featured Alphaville’s “Big In Japan,” and here we have their most well known song. But well-known doesn’t mean successful on the chart, as “Forever Young” only reached #93 in March 1985. It was re-released three years later, and peaked at #65 in December 1988.
