The first 5 are easy but the last 4 could be switched around at any given moment.

1. Give Me The Money
2. So Much In Love
3. Tell Me What You Dream
4. Wrong Number
5. Playin' It Cool
6. Voices
7. Something Wrong
8. Lonely Girl
9. Take A Good Look Around

I listened to this yesterday in honor of its birthday and enjoyed it. These "celebrations" are good for inspiring that! Looking at the lists, it seems that while TMWYD is a clear favorite, I'm a bit bummed that Lonely Girl is so low on many lists. I think that one is great! Ah well, different strokes for different folks.

I agree Soda. I try to listen to each album during the celebration week as well. Although, I didn't get a chance to listen to Playin' It Cool this week, hopefully, I can get to it sometime over this weekend.

So here are the results of our poll for the album. Although, this is only a small sampling, as I've said before I think the outcome wouldn't be drastically different even if we had 100 fans voting. In this case, we were so 'all over the place' so there wasn't a very big range in the point difference between the top and bottom songs. Here's the way the votes went ...

1. Tell Me What You Dream - 38 points
2. Gimme the Money - 29 points
3. Wrong Number - 27 points
4. So Much In Love - 26 points
5. Lonely Girl - 22 points (tie for 5th & 6th place)
6. Voices - 22 points (tie for 5th & 6th place)
7. Playin' It Cool - 21 points
8. Something's Wrong - 20 points (tie for 8th & 9th place)
9. Take a Good Look Around You - 20 points (tie for 8th & 9th place)

So Congratulations to Tell Me What You Dream.

Thanks to those who participated. As I said earlier, if anyone else wants to still post their list, it's not too late. Go right ahead - I'll update the standings if this happens.

Oh boy, don't even get me started on this album! I do not own it, & I am only familiar with a few of the songs on it, but this album, was in my opinion, not the Timothy B Schmit I knew.....To me this is some manager or PR guy trying to change him into something else!

As a fan of TBS from Poco, & then the Eagles, I didn't even know this was him! I didn't recognize him & as for the pop sound, for me it just was so off character! I didn't get it at all......

That said, I will wish the album a Happy Anniversary, but not one of my favorites from Timothy!

His look on this album is pretty shockingly different. He probably cut his hair to look more modern and not like he was stuck in the 70s. It might have worked if he had gone with a more flattering style or not cut it quite as short as he did. He just took it a bit too far!

It is interesting to note that this is his only solo album besides Expando that is available to purchase digitally.

HAPPY 28TH ANNIVERSARY PLAYIN' IT COOL!!!

I like most of this album, but I don't think it's his best for sure. It's kind of fun to go back through this thread and reminisce. As far as his look and sound, I guess it was just an attempt to reinvent himself after the Eagles breakup - something that all artists go through, I guess. I actually liked his hair after he started letting it grow out. This is between the short hair and the mullet that he got around '86.
