    ... do-over at life

    Hmm, you can't really dance to it.

    Wow, wonder what happened to him. I loved that song.

    Back in the glory days, great mullet:

    He's still got the mullet. Though I wouldn't classify it as great anymore.

    Just to throw political fire on it: during Republican Robert Orr's (successful) 1984 campaign to get re-elected as Indiana's governor, Summer did a song and campaign video for him. I also remember his "Time for Big Fun" being used during Pacers tipoffs, and not ironically even though it was when the Pacers were losing 60 games a year in front of 5,000 people in Market Square Arena, when the big brown curtains shut off the upper area in a failed attempt to make it look less depressing.

    I believe Summer in the last year or two got busted trying to score meth at a trailer park. How sad.

    Political fire. Just what a thread on SJ needs.

    Always liked that song, but was stuck forever with the thought: "Who the frak is Leroy?"

    I saw him on Letterman in 1987 or 88 when he his one hit was big. I thought he was on drugs then. He was all over the map.

    When I first heard the song I thought he said "I wish I had a girl who won't fight back."

    Kind of a different meaning.

    He appeared at one of our local summer festivals at the "height" of his career. He was a little strange that night.

    How the hell? I "grew up" in the '80s and I have never heard of this guy or heard this song. Was it really a big hit?
