Great album.

I love the Diane Warren penned Songs "Ti Amo" & "Silent Partners". The Whole album ROCKS! Even the ballads.

Kathy- What happened to the original posts that we posted in these discussion forums? I don't know if I could word a response as well as I did a few years back! :o But I'd be happy to try... :wink:

[font=Century Gothic]Cajestic,

The original forum version was hosted by Aimoo and this new version is hosted by us on our own servers. That being the case, there is no easy way to directly transfer the thousands of posts from the original version of the forum to this one. We will be transferring original posts from forum v1.0, but again with the large volume of posts we are working with, it's a tedious process that will be best handled in stages.

Self Control was a great CD for Laura. I loved Self Control when it hit radio and instantly became a big hit for Laura. My top favorite song though is With Every Beat Of My Heart. What a voice!!!!! The Luck One, Satisfaction and With Every Beat Of My Heart are my other top favorites.

I heard there was an "Exorcist" connection to the "Self Control" production team. :confusion-scratchheadyellow:

Steve,

William Friedkin, the director of The Exorcist, also was the director for Laura's Self Control music video.

Yes, a truly great album!!! :music-listening:
It is the first album of Laura's that I bought (on casette), after I heard her sing The Lucky One and Self Control on a radio show. Laura said that she needed to use some self control, to get her career moving along, (or something like that), it was a nice play on words, so I went out and bought the tape. (Pardon my memory if I messed up on what Laura actually said, it has been about 30 years!)
The bottom line was that I liked what Laura said, and thought her songs were great! :music-listening:
I used to listen to that Self Control tape quite a few times while driving 2000 miles to university!
Thanks Laura, for making the drive more enjoyable.
Unfortunately the tape was stolen from my car at about the same time that laura passed away. :cry:
We know you are singing up there in the Heavenly Choir, thanks for sharing your great voice with us all. :greetings-wavingyellow:
