  1. “Convoy” gets a big fat F from me, as it’s one of the worst and most annoying songs ever made. And I like “All By Myself”, but have really soured on Eric Carmen lately. He followed me on Twitter, but tweeted a lot of crap in support of Donald Trump, which I simply cannot abide.

    • Well I am at the point where any political crap is a turn off to me. This afternoon I was having a nice conversation on the phone with a longtime friend and then he turned the conversation- on a dime – political. I had been in no hurry to get off the phone until then- within three minutes “I have to go”- It’s all garbage.
