I only know "I Want To Know What Love Is". I must say it sounds like the most typical eighties song there is. And no, that's not a compliment. Are all songs like this? What others should I hear?
I know that you don't mean that complimentarily - I've never heard "typical 80s song" being used as a compliment.
As for your opinion of IWTKWLI, well, in my opinion, it is the greatest vocal performance I have ever heard, by anybody. I shall admit that the instrumental part took a little getting used to, but the vocal just shines through it, and after a while, you stop caring about the average backing. The vocal line is all that matters. Exceptional lyrics, sung wonderfully.
