christopher cross – 1980
christopher cross is a funny looking fella. especially now, that he’s bald and kind of reminds me of kevin from the office. (just me?)
look at him on stage, singing this beautiful little ballad in that fucking football jersey. come on man, put some effort into it! i guess that advice would have helped 20 years ago when he was getting ready to go on stage. where was his manager, who should have been all, “hey, chris. a jersey? really? come on. you can do better man. a cosby sweater or something. you look ridiculous.”
but who’s going to remember that he was wearing a football jersey and playing a double neck guitar while he belted out his almost patented version of soft rock when he was winning award after award for this song? me, that’s who.
