"Every Love Song" by The Greg Kihn Band

Song#:  1105
Date:  07/17/1982
Debut:  86
Peak:  82
Weeks:  2
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  Kihn's album "Kihntinued" didn't get off to the best start with its first single, "Happy Man," only getting to #62 on the chart. This second single didn't help things and was barely a blip on the chart for a couple of weeks.

ReduxReview:  This slow-groover plods along just fine but it is not in the same league as some of his best material. I don't think it really makes a good single either. The song might have been more interesting had he done it a little quicker with a reggae-influenced beat. Then maybe this might have clicked. As-is, it is fairly bland. Although the sax work is tasty.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  In addition to his music career, Kihn became an author of horror novels. He has written four books including 1996's "Horror Show," which was nominated for a Bram Stoker award for Best First Novel. The book centers around a B-move director who uses real dead bodies for his next film. Kihn also recorded a concept album called "Horror Show" that loosely uses the book for its themes.
