Romantics "hearings"
Oct 17th, 2006 at 7:30am
 
Instead of "sightings", I just couldn't resist posting some places I've heard the Romantics.

I flipped on WJR AM 760 in Detroit this morning (at about noon) and accidentally tuned into the Rush Limbaugh show--all of a sudden, I noticed that they were playing "Talking in Your Sleep" in the background (it was really soft, but the second I heard it, I recognized it--I had to turn the station way up to actually confirm what I was hearing!)  I have no idea what his topic of the day was, (I'm not a fan), but I thought it was interesting that they chose a Romantics tune to play behind his intro!

Out beloved Romantics are everywhere!!!

While at King's Island this last weekend for Fearfest (it was a blast), we were eating some pizza and burgers and sipping some beers in the huge indoor pavillion where they had the college football games on the giant screens. When they broke for commercials, I heard "What I Like About You" playing. I couldn't see the screens real well because I was in line getting some more Amber Bock, but I think a hotel chain or a car company is now using the song in their commercials.

It is a regional commercial, thus, haven't heard it in my neck of the woods, and I'm sure many others haven't either  Wink

Get with it? HUH?
"What I like About You " is everywhere which is a good thing. In Cleveland I was filling up my gas tank and bada bing "What I Like About You" is playing on the speakers. Who knows if they get free hotel rooms..............
Thank God ,"What I Like About You " lives forever thats the song that hooked me as a little kid. The local sports talk guy in Cleveland WKNR Greg Brinda from 9 am to 12 pm everytime he goes from commercial and back to taking calls "What I Like" is playing behind him speaking. So it is quite confusing to what car commercial has it to hotels to movies and tv shows...It's just way cool !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey trikfan, thanks for the heads up.....but I can't find any words from the Romantics on there--the only tour diary I can find is from Powerman 5000.   Undecided   Can you give us a more specific link to the page? 

Thanks.

If you go towww.billboard.com and put The Romantics name in the search engine, or Tour Diaries and this is what you get:

The Charms
The hotel employee describing how to get to the room sounded almost identical to Bo Diddley giving backstage directions to Spinal Tap, minus the "short jog" part.
Oct 16, 2006 - Billboard - Ellie Vee and Ethan Jon Kreitzer

The Romantics
During travel time, we entertained ourselves on the bus and made up rude English pub names to pass the time, all the while eating Twilla's delicious chocolate chip cookies with milk.
Oct 11, 2006 - Billboard - Mike Skill and Brad Elvis

The Charms
Fargo, North Dakota has been invaded by the traveling rock and roll circus. We're living on the bus for a couple days between Seattle and Minneapolis.
Oct 09, 2006 - Billboard - Ellie Vee

The Rolling Rock And Roll Show
Stay up to date on many of the bands playing the Rolling Rock And Roll Show with Billboard.com's cache of tour diaries.
Sep 13, 2006 - Billboard - Presented By Little Steven's Underground Garage A Go-Go

Hope that helps! Wink

LOL@ the billboard comment.
When I read it, I thought it sounded a little like Brad's sense of humor! Cheesy
