Friday Night Video

One week. That's all that's left, folks. Just one week. And for the countdown, that means just two more songs/videos. I honestly don't know what you'll do without this weekly segment. You might not realize it now, but you're gonna miss it. You'll wake up on Friday mornings with an anticipation you can't quite explain or place, only to go to bed at the end of the day feeling a little more empty inside than when you began. That's what it feels like to be denied your week-end dose of Rick. I pity you in advance.

I don't think there's a lot of mystery as to what the #1 video will be (though this countdown is really not in any sort of logical order), so picking this second to last song is a real challenge. Lots to choose from like Human Touch or Affair of the Heart, but I'm gonna go with Rick's third most popular song according to the billboard charts...a song featured heavily in his 1984 movie Hard to Hold, and a song that reached as high as #5 back in 1984. Love Somebody is about a woman who is running out of time to fall in love...somebody who has over idealized "the perfect image of the perfect man" to the point where it's almost too late. Nope, doesn't sound like anyone I know. It's also a song which features one of my favorite lyrics which is, "Your eyes are wild, your skin so're undernourished and overfed."

This performance was from Live Aid (everyone remember that?) and the best part is the person who introduces him to the stage is...Joe Piscopo! Now we're talking.
