Extreme – “More Than Words” – (1991)

This awful hair ballad – I mean, wonderful acoustic rock song… was a #1 hit for Extreme in 1991. This song and Mr. Big’s “To Be With You” are more or less the same song (at least, in my mind). And I always say I don’t like either of them… except when listening to them. I really liked it back in the day, but it just kind of got on my nerves over time and now avoid it at all costs. It just sounds like an 80s hair metal band tried to go soft when the 90s came around – wait, that’s actually what it is. I understand that some people are fanatical about this song, and good for them. To each his own.
