:D I loved this show! There were a lot of good songs on this show, which did well on the British charts, but never on the North American charts....

We Got The Power (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLx70UfIcvc)

Luckily the studio version fixed the Gene Anthony Ray/Lee Curreri vocals...while Erica Gimpel did fine without any help. :respec:

Valerie Landsburg - Beautiful Dreamer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRpcFI7idbk)

This one might be the best written song of all that appeared on the show. :)

I just got Season 2 on DVD. Shorofsky's grey face makeup not so flattering on a high-def TV. I still have a crush on Bruno. :swoon:

Wow, 80's fashion galore! (it's a marathon today and I'm at my sister's house, who gets the "ovation" channel)

I was SUCH an addict when I was a kid!
My friend had a record of the show too that we listened to endlessly - I mostly remember the Othello musical - "I wanna own ya Desdemona" and "Friday Night's gonna be all rights gonna be right's gonna be all right now baby!"

I still have a crush on Bruno. :swoon: Me too. :)

My very first skating exhibition was to "I Still Believe In Me" which was sung by Coco and Miss Grant.

Snort. he does kind of have a Rockne Brubaker look about him, doesn't he?

I liked the theater teacher who did Music Man and how it was SO DEEP that "trouble in River City" mirrored the trouble in his own life. . . .

Leroy was SUCH a sexy dancer.

I wish I had that channel - I loved that show and went into 1,000 depressions when it was canceled. Then it was picked up for first-run syndication, but never seemed the same again.

Loved the concert show from London!
