A: All I Need

A: All I Need

“All I need
Is just a little more time
To be sure what I feel.”

Oh, Frisco Jones! I was a little too young in 1985 to watch soap operas, although I did watch One Life to Live with my grandmother a few years later.  Shout out to Cord and Tina!

What I remember most about this song was that my older high school neighbor was obsessed with General Hospital and Jack Wagner (Rick Springfield too). This song was always on repeat when I’d go to her house to visit.

Here is ol’ Jack on Solid Gold. Gosh! Remember Solid Gold?! What a great show that was. I wish they’d bring that on TV, for the awesome music and the crazy costumes.

This was Jack Wagner’s one and only hit. He peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, only to be shut out by Madonna’s Like A Virgin. He did hit #1 on Billboard’s adult contemporary chart and was also ranked #71 on VH1’s list of 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders.

Not too shabby for a soap opera heartthrob!

  1. I never watched General Hospital, but I did like this song a lot. And I love just about everything Rick Springfield does. And I miss Solid Gold! I don’t think I could watch it with today’s music. But, it would be cool if they showed the old episodes somewhere.

  2. I love the 80s! I’ll be back for sure. The other day, I couldn’t get out of the car until Lindsey Buckingham’s Holiday Road finished playing. I turn on the 80s station on the TV whenever I have to clean the house.
