REO Speedwagon – The Artist
REO Speedwagon (originally styled as R.E.O. Speedwagon) is an American rock band from Champaign, Illinois. Formed in 1967, the band cultivated a following during the 1970s and achieved significant commercial success throughout the 1980s. Hi Infidelity (1980) contained four US Top 40 hits and is the group’s best-selling album, with over 10 million copies sold. Over the course of its career, the band has sold more than 40 million records and has charted 13 Top 40 hits, including the number ones “Keep On Loving You” and “Can’t Fight This Feeling”. REO Speedwagon’s mainstream popularity waned in the late 1980s, but the band remains a popular live act.
Can’t Fight This Feeling – The Song
‘Can’t Fight This Feeling’ is a power ballad performed by the American rock band REO Speedwagon. The single was a success in both the UK and the US. The song first appeared on REO Speedwagon’s 1984 album ‘Wheels Are Turnin’. It was the group’s second number-one hit on the U.S. charts (the first being 1981’s “Keep on Loving You”, also written by Kevin Cronin) and reached number sixteen in the UK.[ “Can’t Fight This Feeling” has appeared on dozens of ‘various artists’ compilation albums, as well as several REO Speedwagon greatest hits albums. The band has undergone many personnel changes but for this song they were; Kevin Cronin – Lead and backing vocals, Gary Richrath – Electric Guitar, Neal Doughty – Piano, Alan garter – Drums and Bruce Hall – Bass guitar. Kevin Cronin’s girlfriends have been the inspiration for several REO hits, and apparently this track is based on a combination of various relationships, but the song has also a deeper meaning and is about his inability to have the courage to express myself.
The Boxer – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a boxer wearing gloves in a defence position. Boxing is a combat sport in which two people, usually wearing protective gloves, throw punches at each other for a predetermined amount of time in a boxing ring.
Amateur boxing is both an Olympic and Commonwealth Games sport and is a common fixture in most international games—it also has its own World Championships. Boxing is overseen by a referee over a series of one- to three-minute intervals called rounds. The result is decided when an opponent is deemed incapable to continue by a referee, is disqualified for breaking a rule, or resigns by throwing in a towel. If a fight completes all of its allocated rounds, the victor is determined by judges’ scorecards at the end of the contest. In the event that both fighters gain equal scores from the judges, professional bouts are considered a draw. In Olympic boxing, because a winner must be declared, judges award the contest to one fighter on technical criteria.
