George Takei's Amazon.com review of David Hasselfhoff's recording career...
When "Knight Rider" and "Bay Watch" ended, I felt a distinct void in my life. Without Hasselfhoff's bouncing pecs gracing my television, life simply felt drab and unfulfilling.
Imagine my delight when I discovered that Hasselhoff had not disappeared at all, but rather REEMERGED, this time as a serious force in music. It reminded me of when Leonard Nimoy had recorded his stirring tribute to Tolkien, "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins." It was that moving and momentous for me.
Honestly, few Americans truly appreciate how Hasselhoff... snip

1. I remember when I was stationed in Germany from 1989-1991, going in to music stores
and seeing his image, and hearing his music everywhere. The Germans were crazy about him. I don't know if there was an element of mild fascism there, tall guy with an ubermensch vibe, looks good in leather, etc. But he was a phenomenon.

4. Hell, I was such a nerd I bought the thing!
Second worst album I ever bought, though I loved Spock at the time so it didn't matter (see other thread re being turned on in adolescence by moody depressed men).
Worst? Rod McKuen. Stanton Street and Other Sorrows. I blush to this day at how hopeless I was.
But I got better.
