Here's a compilation of pussywhipped songs we (Mia and I) and other people have come up with. Of course, there's more to add ;) (in alphabetical order listing artist's first, then pussywhipped song... the listed artists are in order of the first letter of the first name listed e.g. Eric Clapton would be listed under the letter "E"; anything with 'The' as the first word of their bandname, etc, will be listed under the first letter of said band, etc).
I'm listing seriously pussywhipped songs. There's a difference between genuine love song and pussywhipped song. I was tempted to add Stevie Wonder's I Just Called to Say I Love You but it's more genuine and sweet. Maybe I'll change my mind later.
Air Supply (anything by Air Supply!)
The Beatles - Girl (she's a femme fatale...)
Bryan Adams - (Everything I Do) I Do It for You
Chris de Burgh - Lady in Red
Commodores - Three Times a Lady
David Cook - Lie
1 Sep 2008, 13:42 de Eclectic-GFurther to my journal entries of September 24, 2007 and January 26, 2008, the August 30 edition of Toronto's Globe and Mail newspaper, once again under the title "This week in history", ran a copy of the CHUM Radio Top-10 charts for Saturday, September 2, 1978: 30 years ago.
I immediately recognised nine of the ten songs on the list only one stumped me. (As they say, nine out of ten isn't bad.) Have a look at the list and see how many you recognise.
Here is the list:
1 Three Times a Lady (The Commodores)
2 Love Will Find A Way (Pablo Cruise)
3 Grease (Frankie Valli)
4 You Needed Me (Anne Murray)
5 Break It To Them Gently (Burton Cummings)
6 Live's Been Good (Joe Walsh)
7 Two out of Three Ain't Bad (Meatloaf)
8 Hot Blooded (Foreigner)
9 An Everlasting Love (Andy Gibb)
10 Hopelessly Devoted To You (Olivia Newton-John)
The only song I didn't recognise? "An Everlasting Love" by Andy Gibb. (A quick look on the internet tracked it down, though.)

Let's start with Bruce Springsteen. He has loads of #1 songs, right?
Nope - not a one. He got close though in 1984 when Dancing In The Dark spent a solid month at #2.
A case of leapfrog left Bruce gasping at #2 and these are the two offending songs that spent time at #1 while he sat at #2: The Reflex and When Doves Cry. Ouch! Nineteen Top-40 hits for Mr. Springsteen, but never a trip to the winner's circle.
Gary Wright had just three hits - all of them memorable, but his first two, Dream Weaver and Love Is Alive both peaked at #2 for a combined total of five weeks!
Who kept Gary from #1? The 4 Seasons (yes, it was the numeral "4" in their name) and Johnnie Taylor played leapfrog with Dream Weaver. Bad enough, but yet another leapfrog with the MANHATTANS and, Elton John and Kiki Dee doomed Love Is Alive to #2.
