    in the same vein as Bryan Ferry and Rod Stewart.

    I see you got yourself a brand new bag
    You had enough of the imitation drag
    Although you're leaping to the latest thing
    You can't ignore the suspicion of a hallow ring

    Big bills
    Cheap thrills
    Style kills

    You say you set your standards way too high
    So you convincingly effect a compromise
    Some unsuspecting body's gonna pay
    When you discover that you can't always
    Have your way
    Big pain, big pills, style kills
    If he won't you will style kills
    You say your lover's gotta a lot of nerve
    'Cause he won't keep you in the style that you deserve
    You kid yourself you're only marking time
    Till you fulfill the revenge in the back
    Of your mind
    Clear out, no frills, style kills
    You never take the blame for your mistakes
    Why should you give anyone an even break
    If he won't - you will style kills

    i think i saw rober Palmer perform in 1975 in a small club in Philadelphia. actually went with my father as I was underage.
    he was very smooth. excellent voice.
    and dont judge him by that dated Armani jacket he is wearing on the GQ cover.

    Does the fact that you've contributed to it impact the degree of badness, either plus or minus? Or is it simply a given that for historical purposes you would be a participant in the worst thread ever made?

    All kidding aside, I loathe Robert Palmer as an artist (can't speak to him as a person--presently deceased--or fashion plate), just some of the most bland, generic music ever made. To put him & Bryan Ferry together in the same sentence is sacrilege, as well with that semen-swallowing dandy Rod Stewart.

    Early Robert Palmer music was good, i.e. Spanish Moon with help from Little Feat. Later Pepsi stuff was crap. His clothes were generally crap. Vox has contributed to far worse threads. [​IMG]

    x2. Pressure Drop is a great album. A little "all over the place" but very listenable.

    At what point does this comment become self-referential?
