After that intro I swear I heard "You know, when we first started performing in the sedatives..."
Chet
Rupert holmes was a real soft rocker's rocker.
Spit Spingola
This is the best infomercial. I love the reads on these lines. "I can still sing along to all of these songs." "I know what you mean".
FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown
Amazingly, I don't want the dude from Exile to kiss me all over.
dr_rock
Also, he looks just like Dan Deacon.

Guh.. that was a reply to Chet.

Pacobird
ok so one dude's first name was russel and the other's last name was russel

my mind = blown

who the fuck is Gino Vannelli????

also "in 1979 people were reaching for another line of coke"
C. Eloi Marx
If the first clip of him is all we have to go by, then I would say Gino Vannelli is the owner of the world's greatest 'white-fro'. An accomplishment to be sure.

This went from sort of boring to great with Air Supply's live performances. I hope to god that was sprung on them with zero time to prepare.
boner
I wonder if that guitar is even his... since he is playing it upside down

Graham Russel can't sing any more. Could he ever? Who's to say.

Testicles of Doom
There's a full 30 minute version of this (repeating mostly the same song clips over and over), and one morning I watched almost the entire thing by accident.

You have to be careful with that soft rock. It sneaks up on you, weasels its way into your life, and then before you know it YOU'RE DEAD.

Perfect for department stores.

It's important to remember this is what punk and rap were up against when they started out. Just for the context.
OxygenThief
Now it's only the smooth sounds of the 1970s that can save us from present day punk. The children need Michael McDonald's smooth baritone stylings.

kingarthur
True. Present day punk is the equivalent of this garbage.

ashtar.
No, Air Supply is still worse. There is nothing worse than Air Supply.

...except linkin park.

Strangely enough, I was talking with someone who works at a classic rock station who said they're seeing an upswing in younger listeners, because they want to hear songs like the ones in Guitar Hero/Rock Band.

Marge: Wow, you can't find this stuff anywhere. Seals and Crofts, Pablo Cruise, Air Supply, oh, Loggins and Oates...and it's free!
Lisa: I've never heard of these bands, Mom, what kind of music do they play?
Bart: Crap rock?
Marge: No...
Homer: Wuss rock?
Marge: That's it!
zatojones
yacht rock

retrocious
This is a good argument for the heat death of the universe hypothesis
Caminante Nocturno
Are we supposed to imagine them lounging around their house like this in real life? Because I really can't.
Billy the Poet
Well, they're only showing the balladry and foreplay.

Repomancer
GAAAAAH I thought I'd forgotten all this shit but you had to GO AND REMIND ME
dead_cat
Needs the "white people" tag.

5 stars for making me realize that I have apparently memorized the lyrics to most of these completely against my will. Now that is FUCKING COSMIC HORROR.

I submitted the Exile video to the music site. Check it.
athodyd
Would it be better or worse if Air Supply was really sincerely dedicated to the greatness of Soft Rock? Like, to the point where they almost did this commercial for free as a sort of public service?

Well, mental note to self. I wanted to comment on Benny Mardones singing about showing 16 year-old girls loving like they've never seen, and instead I learned a harsh lesson in trying to include less-than-three heart emoticons in PoE comments.

I openly admit I've developed a somewhat masochistic fascination with this genre.
