These are ear-friendly tunes that veer into the commercial kitchen, straight towards the cheese and crackers section . Which do you like the most and you can add one that stinks too (like a good Muenster) Wink

Hey, I agree, which is why I voted for it but you must admit that , compared to their usual fare, the yodelling  was a tad "aromatic" .LOL

/How many pop songs have yodeling?

Well there was that Jewel song LOL
Either way, it's still one of the best driving songs of all time.

Especially when Akkerman positively rips the song to shreds on his axe, a highway mindblast!Clap

Came in here to post that Hocus Pocus is hardly cheesy. My mom got angry at me for playing that in the car!

I don't know if Heat of the Moment is really a progressive rock tune per se (unlike some other songs on that album, which definitely are proggy), but its an outstanding rock song, catchy, melodic and smooth. I find nothing cheesy about it, its just a good pop tune which fit the era well. In fact, same could be said for Owner of a Lonely Heart. Now you want some cheese, check out some Spandau Ballet, some Loverboy, some Air Supply, and most of the hair metal bands of the 80s. THAT is cheese.

Hey THomas, I am always moved by the beauty of C'EST LA VIEThumbs%20Up!!  n'est ce pas?

It's often served with gourmet dinners, as an ideal way to finish off a sumptuous meal, a glass of vintage port in hand. Can't live with experimental/RIO/Zeuhl all the time. LOL A little simple treat from time to time, in secret, guilty pleasures. A taste of Bungle in the Jungle can be really  Cool

Either Moonlight Shadow by Oldfield or Hocus Pocus by Focus.  Crises is a great album, 1 side of prog epic, 1 side of good pop songs.

And before opening it, I thought this poll would be about Camembert Electrique vs. some random album with "brie" in the title. Wink

I love C'est La Vie, and don't find it cheesy at all.

Moonlight Shadow is great
I´m really getting sick of this word "cheesy", anything that is popular is cheesy?

Agree with this.  Maybe not quite Stilton but a bludy good 'song' nonetheless.

It was the heat of the vomit, owner of spoken fart, we don't need no education (well, how about some grammar lessons LOL...

Hey, I actually remember Hocus Pocus getting air play as a little kid before I turned into a zombie prog pod person.  Probably qualifies as the first prog music I got into.

Obviously a meaning of the word 'great' of which i had been previously unaware (to paraphrase Douglas Adams).

Bungle in the Jungle.

Bungle in the Jungle. I also genuinely like Kayleigh, Moonlight Shadow and Hocus Pocus, and I can't honestly say that I dislike any of the selections on your list.
 
As for cheese:

I am not surprised that Sister Jane got no votes. This Tai Phong "hit" was very popular in pre-disco days on the dance floor , especially in the arms of a babe Cool (called a slow, back then, vying with Whiter Shade of Pale and Nights in White Satin!) . Does anyone out there know this tune?

I like "Bungle in the Jungle" and "Hocus Pocus" considerably.  That cheesy Focus track is not amongst my favourite Focus tracks though (and I prefer the similar "Harem Scarem" which tried to capitalise on the success of "Hocus Pocus."

A cheesy track I like muchly that didn't make the cut is Primus' "Seas of Cheese."

And, just cause I like to say it, who cut LaBrie?

Moonlight Shadow is doing well, considering its name is wrong in the list.  I second the motion that it is a great song, although its clone followup, "Crime of Passion", sung by Barry Palmer, was even better.  I know and like Sister Jane but , although I loved it for a while, I'm kinda sick of it, although I'm still a big fan of the album it's from.  Hocus Pocus is great, although the single version  far inferior.  Kayleigh, Bungle in the Jungle, Another Brick, and Evil Woman are fine songs too.  C'est La Vie, Heat of the Moment, and Owner of a Lonely Heart are all at the bottom, but still decent.

Yes i do remember this band: very big hit it was indeed,SISTER JANE. This French band gave us JEAN JACQUES GOLDMAN who became later a huge star in the ''Francophonie''......nothing prog anyway.Tongue
