Keep on Loving You - REO Speedwagon

Tal com deia ahir, els meus primers LPs no entraran mai en la llista de les compres "cools". Evidentment a banda de comprar discs, gravava en cinta musica de LPs dels amics, dels cosins, directament de la radio - com tothom, no? Com molts d'aquests que avui en dia s'aixequen l'alarma per les baixades de música per interent.
Bé, si els Muppets puc posar l'excusa de l'edat, quan ja tenia 14 anys, i el meu primer tocadiscos a l'habitació, vindria el primer LP comprat de "gran". Al 1981, quins LPs hi havien! Teniem el Human League, els Psychedelic Furs, Depeche Mode, the Police, Prince .... pos, vaig comprar una recopliacio de musica americana, American Heartbeat, amb el que diuen "adult-orientated-rock" ... un LP d'aquells que qualsevol adoloscent ha de portar a casa en una bossa de paper marró i amagar-ho rapidament. Tenia els Kansas, Boston, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner etc - tots, possiblement bons, pero res de "cool" en aquell moment!
Potser fa 25 anys que no escolta als REO Speedwagon, per exemple, fins ara que he buscat aquesta cançó, Keep on Loving You.
...
The early 80s, I suppose I wasn't the only one recording onto cassette everything they could get their hands on - pretty much like today's downloaders! But from time to time, the pocket money reached as far as actually buying an LP. As I said yesterday, the first album, the Muppets, could be excused as a childish choice, but LP no.2 was bought fully aware of what a 14-year-old boy should like. At that time, I suppose the Clash, Prince, Police, Human League, anything would have seemed more cool than my actual choice - a compilation of AOR music called American Heartbeat featuring a long list of "where-are-they-now" groups such as Foreigner, Boston, Styx, REO Speedwagon. Here are the latter with Keep on Loving You, a track I had left behind in the 80s - where it belongs - until now!
