Radio Mans fave with The Raspberries


Go All The Way

The Raspberries were an American pop rock band formed in 1970 from Cleveland, Ohio. They had a run of success in the early 1970s music scene with their pop rock sound, which AllMusic later described as featuring “exquisitely crafted melodies and achingly gorgeous harmonies.”[3] The members were known for their clean-cut public image, with short-hair and matching suits, which brought them teenybopper attention as well as scorn from some mainstream media outlets as “uncool“.[4] The group drew influence from the British Invasion era—especially The BeatlesThe WhoThe Hollies, and Small Faces—and its mod sensibility.[3] In both the US and the UK, the Raspberries helped pioneer the power pop music style that took off after the group disbanded.[5] They also have had a following among professional musicians such as Jack BruceRingo Starr,[6] and Courtney Love.[7]

  1. Eric Carmen said he wanted to write a sexually explicit song that the kids would get right away but the powers that be wouldn’t be able to pin him down. Go All The Way isn’t all that subtle, Eric. The BBC banned it. lol

    He also said that he wrote it with the girl putting the pressure on the guy rather than the more stereotypical guy pressuring the girl as a way of avoiding the censors. Maybe that did help as it avoided the censors elsewhere.

    How times have changed.
