"Best Of Bish"
Stephen Bishop easily fits the soft rock/lite rock of the 1970s. His biggest hit was "On And On."
He appeared in the movie Animal House, where he was playing acoustic guitar. John Belushi took his guitar
and smashed it, one of the most memorable scenes of the movie. What I didn't know, was that he appeared in
The Blues Brothers movie, where he was one of the two cops involved in the Dixie Square Mall chase.
His famous line from the movie was "They broke my watch..."
Speaking of movies, he wrote the song for the movie White Nights -- "Separate Lives," the #1 song
by Phil Collins & Marilyn Martin was written by Bishop, as it related to his breakup with actress Karen Allen.
Bishop's own version of "Separate Lives" is included on this Best Of. He provided the song "Unfaithfully
Yours (One Love)" for the 1984 remake movie of the same name. Although it received radio airplay, the soundtrack
for the movie was never made. This song was not available on a Stephen Bishop album, yet it first appeared on this
Best Of Bish compilation.
Having the 45 rpm record of "On And On" when I was younger, the B-side was another hit, "Save It For
A Rainy Day." It was a treat, as always to get both sides from a CD.
Many of the songs on this Best Of are very lite rock songs. To summarize, its an album of very lite rock
material. Some may think this kind of music is boring, but it pleasant to listen to, and relaxing. Good music
to work by. For the Lite Rock fan, and peaceful music to work by, or even a good mood setter, Stephen Bishop's
Best Of Bish is a good bet.
