80's Guilt #44: Climie Fisher “Love Changes (Everything)” (1988)

We'd like to thank Dad for exposing us to Climie Fisher's 1987 LP Everything, an album which did not chart especially well stateside (peaking at #120), although about half of its songs somehow ended up getting covered on various episodes of KIDS Incorporated. (If memory serves correctly, the deep album cut "Room To Move" was almost certainly sung by Jennifer Love Hewitt). Under normal circumstances, Climie Fisher was not a typical LP in the Dad-rock canon, unless of course either of your parents were an aspiring producer/songwriter in the late 80's, in which case they were probably rocking the fuck out to this and the self-titled Robbie Neville album with "Wot's It To Ya." Seeing as how the songs on KIDS Incorporated were likely chosen by keyboard-geek dads in their late-30's, the Climie Fisher preference makes sense.

Thank you Wikipedia.. We almost forgot this group was formed from the ashes of Naked Eyes, now famous for their two hits "There's Always Something There To Remind Me" and "Promises, Promises."

P.S. Oh fudge, turns out we were incorrect about "Room To Move." Lead vox were provided by Fergie and some kid with a badass hi-top fade... Damn, these kids LOVED the running man...
