I saw drummer Terry Bozzio play last night with his group that he was in prior to Missing Persons, UK. He is amazing. Here he uses electronic drums and/or programming. I always thought Missing Persons had some thought provoking lyrics. This cd is out-of-print and worth usually at least $40 on Ebay
Missing Persons "The Closer that you Get"
I always thought "The Bridge" was half of a really good album. I like the message in this one and having Steve Winwood on organ and backing vocals helps.
Billy Joel w/Steve Winwood "Getting Closer"
Produced by Jon Bon Jovi and Danny Kortchmar, this version is a little more polished than the Unplugged. The songs speaks to the alienation and emotional distance a lot of couples experience after years together.
Hall and Oates "So Close"
A "supergroup", if you will. Jimmy Page and Paul Rodgers got the idea to form a band after playing together on the star-studded ARMS tour in late 1983. The material never did quite live up to their former bands but some of the tracks had a good energy.
The Firm "Closer"
A song celebrating those that are able to do work that they like or even love. Taking a chance to pursue a craft that brings meaning to your life, sometimes at the sacrifice of financial gain.
Rush "Closer to the Heart"
