So Hard

I am not all that keen on it anymore*, but for a while there I thought it was fantastic. Perhaps it would have done well among the hoi polloi.

* Somehow, the dance remixes spoiled its appeal for me. Perhaps, too, I was influenced by the comment Chris made about it being a blot on Behaviour.

RE: So Hard

I think So Hard was an absolute GEM of a song. I remember when it was released.....it was right before my 30th birthday. I had a HUGE apartment that had a wrap-around patio/terrace that overlooked the CBS Studios------My roommate and I had about 300 people over and I played the song over and over and over (aAND OVER!!) because I couldn't get over how wonderful it was.

I DESPISE their version of "Go West". Growing up as a gay young boy----still with all the innocence I was spurred on to move to go to college at UCLA (For you non-US citizens that is The University of California at Los Angeles), and the Village People version still makes me smile and tear up a little. I just think the Boys version is THE Primo version........

RE: So Hard

CORRECTION:

The "VILLAGE PEOPLE" version is the PRIMO version. I cannot stand to even listen to the Boys sing it at every concert. But everyone is entitled to their opinions! I love ALL!
