One hit wonders…Backstreet Boys and Keith Martin

“You say that we’ve got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we’re falling apart…

And I said what about “Breakfast at Tiffany’s?
She said, “I think I remember the film,
And as I recall, I think, we both kinda liked it.”
And I said, “Well, that’s the one thing we’ve got.

Familiar?…right…It’s from a song …Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Deep Blue Something…again it is from Deep Blue Something…Not surprised if the artist does not ring a bell…Deep Blue Something comes from this society…society of One Hit Wonders (nyeeek!)…Believe me, membership is quite simple… release a song, let it be played in the radio over and over until listeners get pissed off..they start calling your song a Big Hit…:), then after a while you’re no longer to be found, either by choice or not (when people realize the lack of talent..or that your song seems to be too old already when it only topped the charts a month ago)….Don’t get me wrong, though…Breakfast at Tiffany’s (not the movie) is a nice song…I love it and Deep Blue Something seems to have talent written all over the faces of the band members…But Lady Luck (shall I say, Unluck) seems to drive the band to the society…

Look into my eyes
Can’t you see they’re open wide

Would I lie to you baby??
Would I lie to you??…oh yeah
Don’t you know it’s true
Girl there’s no-one else but you
Would I lie to you baby??
Would I lie to you??”….

Yeah, that’s it!  another One Hit Wonder…this time from Charles and Eddie (who????)
By the way, Backstreetboys are coming back in Manila before the end of February…wooow Big time!…are they still popular???. I’m sure they are not as big as they used to…but can they still carry a big concert… Knowing our country and it’s allergy to moving on…, I’m sure this concert will still be a blockbuster!

Just an observation…when artists start losing their luster in their hometown… How come they start visiting the Phils. for concerts in unimaginable frequencies???.. If Nora Aunor’s downfall (I heard …come on… we all know that she’s coming back…surgeries and all…) was sealed by her marriage to a lesbian look- a- like, then foreign artists show their demise by coming and coming and coming back to the Phils for performances…See,  Filipinos are indeed lovable!!! Air Supply, Rick Astley, David Pomeranz, Earth Wind and Fire… just to name a few.

If there are one hit wonders and artists who keep coming back to the Phils…there’s one who fits both categories…. “If ever you wonder if you touch my soul..yes, you do….Beacause of you, my life has changed…thank you for the love and the joy you bring….ooops enough, enough”… Do I need to say more about this song..done in every version possible…acoustic, male and female versions,… And whatever happens to the guy…yes, Keith Martin…he practically became a Filipino citizen…how can you beat that!!!
