Default Holiday Road

Did anyone catch some band during the Macys Day Parade doing Holiday Road? It has to be Lindsey’s biggest solo hit.

I've had so many friends say, "Oh my lord, he sang and wrote that??"

You may say I am crazy, but I don't know why each (unexpected) time I listen Holiday Road, I think it's a Michael Sembello song and relate that song with Gremlins movie. Then after 10 nanoseconds I always react and realize Megamadness is the Sembello Gremlins song, and Holiday Road is the Lindsey's National Lampoon's Vacation song.

I'm not implying both songs are very similar. I'm just saying that confusion happens to mean often.

He has made more money from Holiday Road than the sale of all of his solo albums combined times ten. It has been used in countless commercials.

Did you guys know that “Holiday Road” has the same chord progression as Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time”?

Last time I saw Lindsey solo(probably 10 years ago), I was disappointed that he wasn't singing the chorus(tracks). Even the dog at the end was tracks.

Don't know why, but this gave me a good chuckle.
