    However, there are some great gems in his catalog- I tried to pick some ones that weren't heavy airplay, including a few newer ones from the 2000s.

    Rick Springfield- I get Excited


    Carry Me Away


    Hole in My Heart


    What's Victoria's Secret (He rips off Jessie's Girl here, but this song is cool).




    Here's some really early Rick Springfield, along with Little River Band co-founder Beeb Birtles playing guitar on an interesting version of Eleanor Rigby for a band called Zoot.


    btw, in the book I'm revising now, I named a minor character 'Beeb' after Birtles.

    "What would your feelings be, seriously, if your cat or your dog began to talk to you, and to dispute with you in human accents? You would be overwhelmed with horror. I am sure of it. And if the roses in your garden sang a weird song, you would go mad." --Arthur Machen
