"I'm finding it hard to believe we're in heaven" in Bryan Adams's "Heaven" always seems really off since that phrasing suggests scepticism rather than incredulous wonder to me and I find it hard to believe that that is what he wanted to express.
lol, never thought about that, but you're right. Like "This is it? This can't be it."

My first encounter with "Genius of Love" was having it pop up in the middle of Stop Making Sense. I was maybe 9 or 10 at the time, and even then, the cringe factor was quite intense.

kind of surprising that there's already been dead discussion and nobody has talked about donna on live versions of "playing in the band"
I love Donna's singing in "Playing," always. Of course she's loud: she's the only vocalist on that stage with the ability/knowledge of how to project her voice.

the "why don't you piss off" in "Your Silent Face" is an example of a song *made perfect* by cornball lyric/vocal at a dramatic moment.

Jimbo only wrote the 2nd verse iirc.
On the spot, in that awful film.

That said (and I expect to be crucified for saying this), I thought "The Hook" by Blues Traveler was a totally decent and maybe even enjoyable pop song, but that rap in the middle remains one of the single worst things I have ever heard.
"Suck it in, suck it in, suck it in / If you're Rin Tin Tin or Anne Boleyn"
I always assumed I was mishearing that. Nope, that's what they sing (according to the internet). Brutal.

Ian Gillan's hysteric wailing in Child In Time although I'm sure many people love that part.
