WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Forbert's intimate verbal imagery, paired with a roots-rocking musical approach, struck a chord with millions of people during the transitional period between '70s folk-rock and '80s New Wave. His brash-yet-sensitive take on songwriting and his unaffected delivery propelled the album up the charts, leading to sold-out shows and a feature in Rolling Stone magazine and even a high profile cameo as Cyndi Lauper's tux-wearing, flower-toting boyfriend at the end of the "Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun" video from 1983.
