The Servants - Look Like A Girl
I know this movie should have been right up my alley. I really like Michael Keaton and I’m the stay-at-home dad of a working wife. I’m Mr. Mom, right? This movie was probably fun in 1983 but it doesn’t hold up. It looks really old and it’s point of view is just not something we have much of anymore. This kind of comedy went the way of “Home Improvement” and should remain hidden away like Wilson from “Home Improvement.”
This movie was not good and that’s because society has evolved a lot since 1983. They can’t all be winners. It was not as bad as “The NeverEnding Story” but it should remain close to the bottom of this list when all the dust settles.

Survivor : Premonition (Side 1)
Survivor is an American rock band formed in Chicago in 1978 by guitarist/songwriter Jim Peterik. The band achieved its greatest success in the 1980s, producing many charting singles, especially in the United States. The band is best known for its double platinum-certified 1982 hit “Eye of the Tiger”, the theme song for the motion picture Rocky III. The band seemingly reached success overnight with that single, and simultaneously reached their peak. Since then the band has been plagued with revolving members. Original members quit and rejoin more frequently than even the local Walmart’s turnover. I had the good fortune of seeing Survivor in the middle 90’s during one of their shift changes. It was my first bar show, as I had just turned 21. I guess that proves I have always been an old soul. Never trying to sneak in to bars and seeing a band “past their prime”. Anyhow, I thought it was a pretty good show. Of course we just wanted to hear them sing THE song…I don’t even think I ordered a drink. Literally my friend and I just wanted to hear them sing “eye of the tiger”. Anyhow, I digress. This 1981’s Premonition, so the album right before the big breakthrough. It had some encouraging success as Sylvester Stallone got ahold of it and asked the band personally to write a song for his movie, so the rest is history. “Chevy Nights” starts it off. Hmm, a CAR song to kick it off, eh Survivor?? (#iseewhatyoudidthere). It’s a good mid-tempo radio rocker. I have to admit this is kind of an underrated 80’s band. They have the muscle and the music. “Summer Nights” follows sharply. They seem to be fond of the hours between dusk and dawn. We find ourselves smack in the middle of a ballad. A bold move to so quickly invoke the power ballad. I feel like this tune may have been radio fodder. This album gave the band its first Top 40 single, “Poor Man’s Son”. This is the very tune Sly Stallone cited specifically as his decision to call out to Survivor. It is another very decent rocker and certainly we get a clear understanding of Dave Bickler’s amazing pipe range! The man can sing! Really, pretty decent solo efforts on everyone’s part. I can totally see what Stallone must have seen too. The mid tempo love ballad resurfaces for the finale in “Runway Lights”. So, the band is very well crafted at their carved niche, but overall I must admit, there is not a lot of diversity in this Survivor portfolio. They need more polarization in their progressions. Great harmonies and catchiness is present, but it just ends up sounding like a lost Journey record. I suppose that’s not entirely terrible considering the era we are talking about. For real, this is Perry level shit! Right in line with The Styx, too. Very 80’s stadium rock, but very short for a production of that stature.
The Cars: Panorama (Side One)
The Cars were an American rock band that emerged from the new wave scene in the late 1970s. The band originates in Boston, Massachusetts, circa 1976. The primary lineup throughout their career is singer, rhythm guitarist, and songwriter Ric Ocasek; singer, songwriter and bassist Benjamin Orr; lead guitarist Elliot Easton; keyboardist Greg Hawkes; and drummer David Robinson (not the San Antonio Spurs superstar) (#seewhatididthere ). That makes them somewhat unique as they had no lineup changes, up To and including their reunion in 2011 - only missing Orr who had died in 2000 from pancreatic cancer. The Cars were at the forefront in merging 1970s guitar-oriented rock with the new synthesizer-oriented pop that was then becoming popular and which flourished in the early 1980s. They combine elements of power-Pop with punk and even some rockabilly, all with a beautiful keyboard heavy soundtrack thanks to the innovative Greg Hawkes. They were inductees into the Rock and Roll hall of fame in 2018. Following the success of Candy-O, the band’s third studio album, Panorama, was released in 1980. The album, considered more experimental than its predecessors, featured only one Top 40 hit with “Touch and Go”. Although the album peaked at No. 5 in America, it did not receive the critical praise of The Cars and Candy-O. This album is hardly considered by most fans, but it really does hold its own. “Panorama” starts it all. Hawkes keys take hold immediately and prove he is one of the greatest. He totally understands the hook. The Sfx king! It has an almost creepy and primitive vibe. Robo vox add a nice touch. It’s very loooong though, it just keeps going around and around…like a Panorama (#iseewhattheydidthere). The big hit “Touch and Go” is next. As previously mentioned it’s the only song to chart in the top 40 off the album, so by comparison to the rest of their catalog, this album performed poorly. I think differently though. To me, this is a big hit for them, a very recognizable Cars song, and one most individuals know…and it’s not even in their top 10 biggest hits. Does that make sense? Even their “b sides” as it were are amazing! It all centers around another cool, but creep-a-leepy riff. Did they record this album near Halloween?! I also appreciate it’s off time signature. Keeps it different and from stagnation, one of the many skills this band had a natural knack for. “Gimmie Some Slack” is a deep cut through and through, but you won’t care. It’s still a keeper and more on the rock level. No creepy riffs on this one, as I am sure you were wondering. “Don’t Tell Me No” does, however, come back strong with the creeps. This time in the form of a creeper tinged theme. Hawkes again takes lead with the key brilliance. A decent near hit with the tempo slowed to maximize the rock. Let it simmer in successful stereotypes. Like all good things, the album must end though. “Getting Through” sees the experimental ambiance continue. I think they were going for a new wave Country genre. Whaaaaaat?!!?! No, really! It has some twang! Still good though, better than I make it sound. It may be the shortest tune on here, or it could just feel that way due to Robinson and his double time drums. Yes, The Cars really know how to do it correctly. They are one of about 12 bands that I frequently fantasize about being in. Orr and Ocasek make such an amazing songwriter team, it’s almost criminal. Weirdly, their voices sound somewhat interchangeable too. Sometimes adding to confusion on who sang what song. For years I thought it was Ric that sang on my favorite Cars tune, “Bye, Bye Love”
So today it was Survivor with their premonitions and support of Rambo and Rocky, versus the automotive awesomeness of The Cars and their panoramic album of amazingness. Survivor played 4 songs over 15 minutes and burned 102 calories along the way. That is 25.50 calories burned per song and 6.80 calories burned per minute. Survivor earned 8 out of 12 possible stars. The Cars took 21 minutes to burn 159 calories over 5 songs. They burned 31.80 calories per song and 7.57 calories per minute. They also earned 11 out of 15 possible stars. Looks like TheCars managed to burn more than fuel today! They burned more calories per minute and win today’s battle!
