From 1986 to 1991, I listened to Top 40 radio CONSTANTLY. Paula Abdul's Forever Your Girl was one of the first CDs I ever purchased, and, listening to this album over a decade later, I am still surprised at how good it sounds. The music is slick dance-pop, but the grooves have a little bit of a funky R&B edge to them, which gives the music extra oomph. There is even a contribution by Babyface on the excellent single "Knocked Out", and this was back in 1988, long before Babyface was well-known in the pop community. Other standout hits from this album are "Straight Up", "Cold Hearted", "Opposites Attract", "The Way That You Love Me", and the title track. Quite a setlist of pop classics! Paula Abdul also had a certain amount of dignity that today's bubble gum pop queens do not. She appeared fully clothed in her videos, and her sound and style came across as cute and sexy without ever crossing the line to vulgarity. Today's dance-pop has a tendency to bombard the listener with bombast and over-production. However, on Paula's first album, she kept it pure, simple, and "Straight Up"! So, if you are looking for a fun, energetic pop CD that doesn't overdo anything, this album is the one! Great for its 80s nostalgia value, too!

This looks like another album that is underrated because of the anti 80s bigotry...just because this album came out in the 80s, people automatically hate it. "Its cheesy" says one 80s hater. "It sounds so DATED" says another anti 80s person. What if this CD came out a year and a half later than it did? That would make it a 90s album. Would you still hate it then?

Its so unfair how everybody thinks music from the 80s is "cheesy" and a "guilty pleasure". The truth is, music from the 80s (and just about any other decade for that matter) far surpasses anything being made today. Artists like Paula Abdul made music for entertainment purposes only. It put a smile on your face and made you feel good.

Now compare Paula's music with the supposedly "real" music that came out a few years after this. In 1992, music like this disappeared forever! All traces of it were obliterated behind a faceless wall of droning, muddy, distorted guitar noise. Thats right, grunge. All those "woe-is-me, my-life-sucks-because-I-live-in-the-suburbs-and-I-hate-my-parents" mosher bands totally ruined music. How could anybody think Paula is "80s cheese" but think Nirvana were "real" and "honest"? How could they prefer teenage angst and negativity to positive music like Paula Abdul? It simply boggles my grunge hating mind.

I know "Forever Your Girl" might not be hip by today's standards, but be honest. What would you rather listen to? Paula Abdul singing "Forever Your Girl", or Kurt Cobain screaming about how much life sucks and how we should all die? No contest, I'd take "FYG" over the miserable, depressing,negative grunge any day.

After her success as a dancer and choreographer to the mega pop dance stars of the 80s, Paula Abdul breaks out on her own with her debut release of Forever Your Girl. This was a smash hit in the late 80s, and many of the hits off this release are still being played today on top 40 stations. To show that kind of staying power after over 10 years, this release obviously has something special to offer its listeners. If you love that style of pop dance music with fun lyrics and awesome beats and orchestration, this is a must have release.
We start off with one of many smash hit singles "The Way That You Love Me," which is a great dance and attitude song that still stands true today. I still see that sexy gold video every time I hear it... mmm MMM! "Knocked Out" was a moderate success as a single (I saw the video more on BET than MTV) but is really a great dance tune with some great lyrical and orchestration hooks. "Opposites Attract" is pretty good and has gotten a recent resurgence thanks to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I still remember how groundbreaking the video was with Paula dancing with the animated cat. "State of Attraction" wasn't released but could have easily been a hit with great dance beat and orchestration hooks. "I Need You" isn't as trite as it sounds and is a strong pop dance tune with an R&B groove. "Forever Your Girl" was a pretty big hit with its happy, bouncy, upbeat message and orchestration. We finally get to Paula's first huge single, "Straight Up." I must admit, I'm not exactly fond of this tune for some reason - something about the orchestration. But this was a phenomenal success and is a classic late 80s dance favorite. For you trivia buffs, the video featured Arsenio Hall.

Much ink has been spilled about how Paula Abdul had little talent and was mostly all style over substance. But let's be honest, this has been going on in the music business since it first began. Other artists over the years who had a limited range to their voice, yet had hit after hit on the charts include: Lesley Gore, Nancy Sinatra, Diana Ross, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Shania Twain, Britney Spears, etc. For all of these singers listed and many, many others, their style was almost or more important than their songs.

Let's face it folks, for every Petula Clark singing "Downtown", there was a Janis Joplin singing "Piece of my Heart." For every Madonna singing "Vogue", there was a Tracy Chapman singing "Fast Car." For every Paula Abdul singing "Straight Up", there was a Tina Turner singing "The Best." The point is, that there is always going to be more serious artists who sing with their heart and soul and there are going to be artists who are fun and frothy.

If Paula Abdul's music can brighten one person's day, then she has done more for this world than many of the critics who want to tear her down.

I originally bought this CD when it first came out, and it still to this day brings back memories of my wild, fun, adventurous youth. I can remember dancing at the clubs to songs like "Knocked Out" and "The Way That You Love Me." I also liked album cuts such as "State of Attraction" and "One or the Other." Listening to this CD still brings a smile to my face, and really, in the end, isn't that all that matters?
