  1. Debby Boone…Yikes! It’s soooo bad. Yes, it’s syrupy sweet, sappy nausea inspiring warbling and to add insult to injury she sings it flat! What’s worse, I was 11 years old and had the album. I loved it. I drove my mom crazy by playing it over and over. I’m ashamed, as I should be.

    • Yes it was like he was gone and then this song popped up- and then the other tributes- none of which were too memorable.

  2. The list is only ok and I’d like to say that I was feeling the Commodores and Barry White tunes back then. Truth be told I was singing my little heart out to Keep It Comin’ Love and On and On. Don’t judge me!

  3. There is some good stuff on there. I remember most of it. I was 11. I miss hearing Rita Coolidge.

    I liked You Light Up My Life the first 10 times. After that, I wanted to barf. The next song I learned to hate was Babe by Styx.
