Richard Marx

A driving hazard

The background: I love Peter Kay’s Car Share, I truly believe it to be one of the best TV shows of the decade. When I shared the show with Mr C, he was also on board - comedy and music aren’t too hard to argue with. On the flip side, one thing we argue about more than we probably should is the guilt of the protagonist of Richard Marx’s song Hazard.

So, Mr C and I have a history of arguing about Richard Marx - I’m on the record as forecasting that his song Hazard will be the one and only reason we ever get divorced. However, that’s not on this album so I can have no complaints. And I actually have no complaints anyway, I really enjoyed it. Nice, proper eighties pop rock, good tunes. I had only heard of Right Here Waiting before listening to this, and that was a highlight, but I think the whole album stacks up.

I actually didn’t discover this song until quite recently, one of those ones that I’ve heard plenty of times but never really knew what it was. As ever, Mr C was more than happy to educate me, and now I really, really like it. It’s not so much the song that I like, but the fact that this song, and more importantly the video, creates amazing conversations. For the record, I think he did it, and Mr C thinks he was framed.
