WTLX Mix Tapes: Side 2, Song 11

Note: This series originally appeared on Facebook in a slightly different form, Aug-Sept 16.

You know how when you encounter something new, you often try to fit it in with your past experience? That happened to me the first time I heard this song (think I was in the car with my parents in February of 80, on the way to one of my sister’s basketball games). This is no lie: as I listened to the opening verse, I somewhat seriously wondered if it wasn’t a Barry Manilow/Cher duet… I ended up liking most of Air Supply’s big hits well enough; “Sweet Dreams” is probably my favorite, but this one still sounds pretty good.
