GLENN MEDEIROS – “Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love For You”

Popular70 comments • 8,795 views

#612, 9th July 1988, video

Another summer hearthrob, another forgettable puddle of ice-cream and tears. Harmless Hawaiian himbo Glenn was promoted here as a kind of male Tiffany – same corn-fed origins and good-luck story. Like her, he’s not an especially good singer: unlike her, his plod through a devotional checklist doesn’t have the enthusiasm or lift to make it likeable. Maybe the arrangement can help? Nope: it’s a disaster – a key change that would shame Eurovision, greasy sax, and a session guitarist doing his freewheelin’ best to upstage Medeiros completely. A thoroughly grim experience.

    This is another one I have no idea about. Can never remember having ever heard it and probably wouldn’t recognise it now…or would I?

    But what about this? Look at the picture of this Medeiros lad and then tell me he’s not the spit of the kid who popped up in a couple of Clint’s Spag Westerns – a cheeky piss-taking lookout in “For a Few Dollars More” and then a shameless murder victim of Van Kleef’s in “The Good, The Bad…” If you don’t agree or you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’ll gladly get me coat.

    This is a horrendous record. Please tell me he’s taking the piss?

    #33: at the time they were queuing up behind Medeiros, Pepa was engaged to one of the Fat Boys.

    Hawaiians in Popular: We are not done yet. The lead singer of a bunnyable group we have yet to encounter hails from that state, but I can reveal no more, dontcha think?

    …and just stay the way you are, because we are most certainly not done with the Hawaiians.

    RIP Gerry Goffin. I prefer “I’m Into Something Good”.

    Just watching the ad break for Broadchurch and this, of all things, rears its ugly head.

    Oh, Thinkbox, up yours!

    I can actually tolerate this one. I would go with 4/10 here.
