Loved them all. I loved Elliott Yamin from American Idol. I read his mother (who I believe has since passed away), loved Days. He is now making an album of all these old school songs from Days in honor of her.

Loved the hospital concert with Al Jarreau singing. One of my favorite songs "After All".
Oh, I absolutely agree. Al Jarreau's early 80s albums are just wonderful. I miss the years when Days used popular music so effectively. I think the changes in the music industry, coupled with decreased budgets for daytime dramas, have just killed the use of popular music in soaps. In the 80s, no one did it better than Days. Remember the super-couple themes:
Bo and Hope - "Tonight I Celebrate My Love" by Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack, "Whatever We Imagine" by James Ingram, "Holding Out for a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler, "Broken Wings" by Mr. Mister
Steve and Kayla - "Lady in Red" by Chris DeBurgh and "Goodbye, My Friend" by Linda Ronstadt
Kim and Shane - "Learning the Ways of Love" by Peabo Bryson and "Friends and Lovers" by Carl Anderson and Gloria Loring
Sorry for being long-winded, but this thread brings back so many great memories...
I also loved when Gloria Loring (Liz) sang "After All". Damn she could belt out those tunes too.
This is my favorite thread.
