Peter Cetera

When I went to lunch today at Reading Terminal Market, we were sitting there and Peter Cetera (I used to be a big fan when I was six and Karate Kid was out) came on the radio. It wasn't his most famous song, the one that was in Karate Kid, the "I am the man who will fight for your honor" song also known as the Glory of Love. It was his other song; the, You're my Inspiration song. Two equally bad songs don't get me wrong, but in a good way. It got me thinking about the lyrics to the Glory of Love though, "I am the man who will fight for your honor." Seriously? Imagine saying that to a girl these days. "Maura, I am the man who will fight for your honor." a long awkward pause and a puzzled look....."Okay, you are a fag."
It sounds like something someone who plays Halo all week long would say to their girlfriend. "I'll use my sword I picked up when I got to level 19 on Saturday. It was between the sword or an extra life... and I chose the I could fight for your honor!" Kill me now. As an aside, admittedly I don't know shit about video games. Are there even swords in Halo?

  1. I really wish that PC would have ended his career after Chicago. I wonder how many guys include his songs on mix tapes made to girls. That would be a great stat to compile. On a really sad note, I remember having to sing one of his songs in 7th grade Choir class. Then again, I had to sing All I Need by Jack Wagner in that class. Is one worse? Choir classes are a joke! Are they required anymore?
